We have just received a large consignment of stunning South Sea Pearl, Tahitian Pearl and Akoya Pearl strands, ready to be transformed into beautiful pearl necklaces, pearl bracelets and pearl earrings. Here at Coleman Douglas Pearls we have pearl jewellery to suit everyone. From our ‘ timeless classic ‘,to our ‘ Biker Chic ‘ designs.
Cultured Akoya Pearls range in size from 3mm to 10mm. These pearls are perfect to achieve the traditional ‘Twinset and Pearl’ look. Normally found in all shades of white from very pure white through pale pink to golden tones. They can also be found naturally in pale grey shades, although this is rare.
Cultured South Sea Pearls are mainly 9-16mm in diameter although they can be well over 20mm. South Sea Pearls are mainly white in colour with a range of overtones from light gold to pale pink. These pearls can come in a variety of shapes as well as perfectly round.
The gold pin on the left shows how the South Sea pearl can come in completely unique shapes.
Cultured Tahitian Pearls are mainly 8-18mm in diameter although they can grow to 21mm. Their colours are naturally dark and range from grey to black and peacock green to aubergine; however, they can sometimes be very light in colour from white with grey overtones to yellow and pink. These pearls like the South Sea Pearls, can come in various shapes too.
