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/

Black Pearl Studs in Clip Ons

Sometimes I have thank people for asking me about a specific product and after posting two strings of our Black Pearl necklaces on Facebook I was asked if we made Stud earrings , which lead to another request by Becca who asked me about studs in sterling silver with a clip. Well!..I think I have found my topic for today. http://www.julleen.com/product-category/earrings/clip-on/

The last 4 images are pearl studs for pierced ears. The first 5 are clip on pearl Studs. You will notice all have a bezel (a metal frame) around each single pearl. The reason we need to SET or MOUNT a pearl into sterling silver is so we can add a clip onto the back. Am sure you get it but just in case you didn’t now you know. As a lover of clip on earrings myself I am happy to talk about them. In fact I made a few videos on YouTube about clip on earrings and will post the links at the end.

Meanwhile a picture tells a thousand words…they say and so here are some lovely black pearl stud earrings for you. The video link is just below.

Inspired by Marilyn Monroe

Often I find it amusing that I create a pearl jewellery design, then suddenly I find something perhaps years later, like an old picture of a star wearing almost the same design I created without having the slightest notion from where the inspiration came. Or in fact that someone else may have worn that similar something decades before. Twice now I have found a similar earring that I created looking very much like a design Marilyn Monroe wore and just for interest sake I will add them below.

Christie’s of London Jewel sale in June fetched 1.64 M for a pearl necklace

Is it any wonder I love pearls so much. Any news at all on the subject of these magnificent gems,which happily I get to work with daily, and my ears generally prick up.  In my lateest  Jewellers Trade magazine there was an article about Christie’s June Jewel auction written by Michael Rees I believe.

A necklace sold at Christie’s for 1.64m in London this last June. The Pearls pn the 35.6cm long necklace measure approximately from 4.1mm to 10.7 mm. The Piece has an oval mixed cut Ruby Clasps with baguette and brilliant cuts in a deco style which dates from the 20s.

A diamond brooch using natural pearls had the 2nd highest price received at this auction, fetching $660 K, smashing it’s pre auction estimate

These results illustrate the continued strength in the market for natural pearls” said Keth Pention, head of Christie’s London Jewellery Department.

Peridot and Amethtyst, Green and Purple Gemstones POW!

Lime and particularly a lime coloured stone has always been a favourite stone for me. I like adding shock colours together. As Wimbledon and the tennis is on each night I am reminded of the purple and green I like to use in jewellery and so I thought a picture paints a thousand words. Here’s to the celebration of green and purple gemstones used together. I hope you enjoy what you see.
