Pearls for every woman

Not only do we source for fine quality gemstones, Heritage Gems also has access to natural south sea pearls. Natural south sea pearls come in a variety of colours, ranging from champagne to silver white to cream, tahitian grey and peacock-coloured pearls. Pearl jewellery make for a classic, timeless gift that a lady can wear for now and in the years to come.

As Coco Chanel once said “A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.” And who can forget Jackie Kennedy’s love of pearls: “Pearls are always appropriate.”

A special client of ours wanted to surprise his wife with a gift on her birthday. A necklace and earring peal set that she could wear on semi-casual occasions and when they go on dates. How romantic!

After careful selection of the pearls to ensure consistent colour, lustre and correct size, the pearls were then chosen to ensure all 7 pearls had as little blemish as possible.

There were several options provided during design discussion process. Fancy-cut marquise diamonds were also proposed to match our client’s face shape. Fancy-cut setting size diamonds are always a premium price to regular round setting size diamonds.
