A stellar pair of Tahitian pearls and diamond cluster ear-drops. At 13mm diameter, this pair of Tahitian pearls are of AAA, fine quality with no blemish and very good reflective lustre. Specially sourced on a commissioned basis, this pair of perfectly round Tahitian pearls are of superb quality.
Factors that affect price of pearls:
- Roundness: Pearls are classified according to perfectly round, semi-round, oval, button, baroque, cercled (yes, you read that right. There is no spelling error – it is not circled).
- Shine/Lustre: Excellent mirror-like lustre, very good lustre, good lustre, average lustre and weak lustre.
- Surface: No imperfection/blemish, minimal imperfections, imperfections and important imperfections
Size also plays a big role in price point. Assuming all other assessing factors of quality being the same, the larger the pearl, the more expensive. For example, a 15mm pearl that is perfect round with very good lustre and no blemish would command a much higher price than a 15mm pearl that is semi-round, average lustre and has imperfections.
The pair of Tahitian pearl ear drops were commissioned to complement our client’s existing Tahitian baroque pearl necklace and we must say it is stunning.
The design of the pearl earrings were conceptualised from the natural environment of the ocean where oysters and corals are a part of the natural landscape.
At first glance, it seems the diamonds have been randomly clustered into a somewhat irregular shape. However, on closer look, one would realise there is actually symmetry to be found in the design and the placement of the diamonds. It makes for a very natural piece of art one would wear on herself.
Choose between ear studs or dangling earrings. Wherever possible, we always love adding abit of flexibility to our jewellery. Especially since we’ve already splurged on these rocks, it is always good to get as much mileage out of them as possible.

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.

A client recently came to us, looking for a birthday gift for her 2 daughters, turning 16 and 21 this May. Her request was simple – “I’m after a pearl pendant. A sweet, young design – ideally the same design, but in different coloured pearls. But I do not want the classic silver pearls. I want a Tahitian pearl and a deep gold pearl. Can you find me a nice deep gold pearl? I’ve heard that nice deep gold colours are hard to find.” Sure we could!
