SheFinds News: Not Your Mother's Pearls

What: Eyris Blue Pearls

Why: Lustrous with deep iridescent colors—tones of blue, violet, jade-green—the abalone shell is a pretty common jewelry component. But now this mollusk is being sought after for more than just its shell, giving its cousin, the oyster, some real competition. The new big thing is the Eyris blue pearl, which comes from Paua abalone from the New Zealand coasts. The gem will make its U.S. debut at the annual JCK jewelry show in June in Las Vegas. What does this mean for jewelry lovers? Get ready to see the gorgeous pearl on new designs—Down Under, it’s already begun. The pieces, such as those by Angelika Carson-Voss and Iain Henderson, are absolutely stunning. It’s impossible to resist the pearl’s beauty.

Tip: When the Eyris blue pearl does become more readily available in the States and you want to buy one, be sure to check the authenticity certificate. The last thing you want is some fake pearl with a fancy paint job.


While they don’t have blue pearls, bluenile.comicon has pearls for every budget.
