When asked what drew her to Pearls Chrissie replied, ‘The beauty of pearls has always seduced me. Pearls lend a mystique to their wearer and a lustre that lightens every complexion. For hundreds of years they have been intrinsically linked with romance, art and beauty. Pearls can be dignified, happy, complex – they are always sensual – who could not fall in love with them?’
Born in Mexico to well-known British artists, she was exposed to creativity from an early age. It was at that time that she learned the importance of mixing colour and texture to achieve an effect pleasing to the eye.
As you look through our collections you will see how she has mixed exciting contrasting materials together to make beautiful eye-catching jewellery for you to wear and treasure.
As well as having a wide diverse collection of pearl jewellery ready to purchase, we also offer a fantastic Bespoke service, re-stringing and re-designing, and an ear-piecing service.
If you would like to find out a bit more about one of these services contact us on 020 7373 3369 or pop into our Pearl Showroom located at 42 Beauchamp Place, London, SW3 1NX.
