Fun Fact:

Julius Caesar’s love of pearls is said to have been a contributing factor to his invasion of England in 55BC.

And it’s not just Julius Caesar who had a love affair with this gem. Throughout history we have seen royalty, politicians, fashionistas, actresses and pop stars all favoring pearls above other jewels.

Beach 4Most recently we spotted Taylor Swift wearing a stunning pearl ring while relaxing in her home.
Fancy the same look? If so you’re in luck, fresh out of the workshop is our natural metallic coloured Tahitian pearl ring with petite diamonds. The tahitian pearl is ‘egg’ shaped with light grey to blue colouring.

But why are pearls so popular?
The main beauty of pearls lies in the fact that they enhance the beauty of their wearer.

How does this happen?
It is all down to light. Light gets refracted into the pearls and then reflected back out onto the wearer, giving him or her a soft delicate uplift of light.
This beauty secret has been recognised since the beginning of civilisation with world leaders doing pretty much anything, even murder, to get there hands on pearls.

Our Pearl Showroom, Coleman Douglas Pearlslocated at 42 Beauchamp Place, London, SW3 1NX, is full of stunning pearl jewellery collections ready to be purchased, allowing you the opportunity to own beautiful pearls without having to murder someone!
