New Developments in pearl science

I find some really interesting articles in my monthly jewellers trade magazine and sometimes like share to articles here with you on my pearl jewellery blog. DNA fingerprinting and age dating of pearls is something very new and is now being used by Swiss researchers at SEEFand ETHZ in Zurich, who…(can you believe it!)….were able to recover minute amounts of DNA from a wide range of pearls.

Sampled pearls were from Australia the Persian Gulf and Indonesia and from French Polynesia. It’s a practically non destructive  technique to extract DNA so as to preserve the commercial value of tested historic and modern pearls. I believe something like this will positively benefit any pearl business owner or wearer as it will help identify and authenticate pearls, once and for all. This will certainly reduce the likelihood of unscrupulous merchants who say their pearls are real when in fact for example they are just shell imitations. Finally they can pin point from where the pearls you are about to purchase were first harvested. I am all for this transparency as it will surely help the industry in a very positive way. If you’d like to see some real pearls we make here at Julleen – see these Necklace – Mainly Pearls. http://www.julleen.com/store/necklaces/mainly-pearls/

Dragon Dust Bracelet

Blues and bluey greens are so prominent for Spring and it brings to mind the beauty of our Peacock pearl twist bracelets called Dragon Dust by Julleen Pearl Jewellery. We bought virtually the whole harvest of this colour as we at Julleen just adored this cultured pearl so much. This lavish Peacock blue looks especially lush when it is clustered together in multiple strands, and we think in this simple style always remains current.

Peacock pearls are always a pretty spectacular at most times and never seems to date but it’s wonderful to see the influence this colour on skin. Incredibly this colour suits anyone! We are pretty pleased that the return of anything blue is so fashionable today and are proud to reintroduce our superb collection of peacock pearl jewellery.

Happy customers in America

Recently as our dollar drops here in Australia, America is now becoming a serious market to West Australian pearl jewellery manufacturers. At Julleen we have noticed an up ward trend in sales to USA for the last few months and I am personally thrilled to get our gorgeous designs into the mainstream in the USA, for weddings particularly. Julleen pearl jewellery is a decent quality and made to last. What was thrilling to me personally today was that a young woman who is about to get married was given a pearl necklace by her grandmother, to wear on her wedding and then the bride-to-be bought some earrings, so she would have the complete set. I just got some lovely news from a bride this morning that the earrings match perfectly. Wow happy customers from such a huge distance. The earrings took just 8 working days to get to USA.

Tuquoise Colour Theme – Just Timeless

Just when you think you can’t stand too see one more lemon top or handbag, there are more again this year. Not so for the stunningly timeless colour Turquoise! Blues particularly Aqua or Turquoise…who can ever grow tired of it? Not me!  Blues have come wooshing back into the mainstream fashion plates for Spring and Summer. Coastal is the main theme for interiors. Turquoise is always such a hit really and never seems to leave fashion trends for long. In fact this is truly one of my favourite tones as I too used it ..back in the day..as my colour theme for my wedding. One day I’ll pull out those pics and share them with you….but for now…to show you the many beautiful ways this colour can be used you can go to the Julleen Pearl Pinterst clipboards or take a quick browse here. http://pinterest.com/julleen/bridal-colour-themes-jewellery/
