We wanted to spend this post bragging about the latest additions to our children’s pearl jewellery – all using the finest of AAA white round pearls:
Photographing pearls is hard at the best of times – and white pearls on a white background is as much a headache as wire wrapped pearls (which are hard to photograph because of the amount of light surrounding each pearl) – however we think our new children’s jewellery is pretty disappointment proof for even the the most discerning of pearl jewellery collectors.
Of course, if you are looking for pearls of the quality shown above but are after a different colour, then that’s no problem either – we are able to get hold of any colour pearl you can think of, although natural colours are generally white, lilac and pink (other natural colours are often rarer and more expensive). If you’re not terribly fussy over the roundness of the pearls but definitely want white pearls that are AAA for lustre and nacre, then we can source these too – prices would typically be £35 for a bracelet and £45 for a necklace. Although pebble pearls may not look terribly attractive on screen, strung round a baby’s neck or wrist they actually look incredibly chic – they are also a good choice if you don’t want to be worrying about the necklace being damaged and/or lost. Prices for pebble pearl children’s jewellery are typically around £20 – £28 for a bracelet and £32 – £38 for a necklace (prices of pebble pearls will vary depending on colour/quality and size). All of our children’s pearl jewellery can be recreated in other precious metals at request..
Looking for children’s opal jewellery? Children’s precious opal jewellery is sometimes very hard to find and right now we have the most gorgeous strand of Mintabie crystal opal in 4.5mm rounds just waiting to be turned into a piece of stunning jewellery – some of this strand will be going to create a matching necklace to our Peacock Pearl And Lambina Opal Bracelet, however, we’re not sure what to do with the rest of the strand yet and would be happy to create a children’s opal bracelet or pearl and opal necklace out of them (there probably wouldn’t be enough left over for a full necklace). As you may know, the Mintabie opal mine is thought to be near depleted and most of the miners have moved onto Lambina (where rich seams of precious opal are still being found), as a result the value of Mintabie opal has been steadily rising in price over the last 10 years or so.
(We will post a photo of our Mintabie crystal strand soon).
