Pearls are a highly prized gemstone that people have admired and sought after for hundreds of years. Harvested from oysters in salt water and mussels in freshwater lakes and rivers, pearls are a highly valued organic gemstone.
At PurpleMay Jewellery we stock a large range of spherical and baroque pearls including South Sea pearls, Akoya pearls, Tahitian pearls, freshwater pearls and imitation shell based pearls, ensuring we have a piece to suit all different needs and budgets.
Wearing pearl jewellery in Melbourne is a lovely fashion accent.
The popularity of pearl jewellery has withstood the test of time. Largely used for aristocracy and monarchs thousands of years ago, using pearls as an accessory in everyday culture continues to grow in popularity.
Pearls are ideal to match the colour scheme of wedding dresses, and can be worn long after the big day. Freshwater pearls in a large range of colours, luxurious South Sea pearls and Tahitian black pearls can be included in your individually designed piece. We are able to source hand chosen pearls directly from the farms of Broome and Tahiti, which can be combined with White or Yellow Gold or Platinum, and a range of coloured gemstones to create a stunning piece that will become an heirloom. With proper care, Pearls will retain their natural lustre for many years, and will be a much loved addition to your jewellery collection.
Pearls can also make a beautiful gift for your bridal party. Classic pearl stud or pearl drop earrings can be made to suit most budgets and will provide your bridal party with an elegant souvenir of your thanks.
