Throughout the course of the evening our in-house Pearl Specialist, Chrissie Douglas, took the group on a grand tour of pearls, guiding everyone through the history of pearls, how and where they are made, and the vast variety of shapes and colours they come in.
We looked at several ‘Pearl Celebrities’ such as La Peregrina (once owned by Elizabeth Taylor) and the Hanoverian Pearls (owned by England), as well as looking at how to choose the perfect pearl for you.
Having learnt about the vast array of pearls Chrissie then explained how to tell the difference between a real pearl, a cultured pearl and an artificial ‘bead’.
Throughout the evening we all gained several pearls of wisdom!…and a few pearl treats too…like the parting gift which was a freshwater pearl studs on 18ct yellow gold posts!
