June Birthstone: Pearl


As a designer, I love to consider every pearl individually, highlighting the unique beauty possessed by each and every pearl. No two pearls are exactly the same, which means that even beautifully matched pearls will feature variations in color, luster, and shape. They are magical and luminous--the perfect gems to inspire creativity!


Pearls are the perfect birthstone to kick off the summer months. Coming from the water, these organic beauties capture the essence of summer with timeless appeal for any woman. I'm excited to take you through a few of my favorite pearl pieces developed in the past year, starting with our Award-Winner!

The Pearl Coin Ring is currently In Stock and available through our retail partner, The Phoenix in D.C.. This ring is the winner of the 2021 The Cultured Pearl Association of America (CPAA)'s International Pearl Design Contest in the "Orient" Category which celebrates pieces that appeal to an emerging pearl jewelry collector—someone who has never before thought of wearing pearls.

This pearl ring features a coin-shaped freshwater pearl with a sharp luster and rose overtones. With a U-shaped form that captures light and creates a rainbow effect, this ring is a one-of-a-kind beauty that allows the pearl to seemingly float on the hand.

The setting includes the leaf motif present throughout the Original Eve Amazon Collection. With a sculptural band that curves for comfort and tapers to counterbalance the pearl, every detail, including the leaf-shaped prongs, has been considered.

An exciting new style of pearl: The Pearl Columns are elongated pearls that feature ringed patterns.


These pearls have an architectural aesthetic due to the column form that looks as if Mother Nature shaped the pearl with a lathe.


When a mollusk is exposed to changes in its environment such as increase or decrease in nutrients, changes in water temperature, or storms can affect the shape, color, and texture of the pearl it is growing. The Column Pearl Pendants celebrate and highlight the nuances that make each pearl beautiful and unique.


Each Tahitian Pearl Pendant is one-of-a-kind. With two different pendant styles and a wide range of pearl options, the possibilities are endless for mixing and matching these pendants with each other and other pendants in your collection.


Tahitian pearls are prized for their wide range of colors including black, gray, green, blue, and brown with approximately 26 different overtones and often a naturally occurring metallic sheen. In the Original Eve collection, we have a variety of options available.


The most luscious black Tahitian Pearl is the focal point of this one-of-a-kind ring. With green and pink overtones and a spectacular luster, this pearl is a showstopper. The setting features the leaf motif present throughout the Amazon Collection. With a sculptural band that curves for comfort between the fingers and grows under the finger to counterbalance the pearl, every detail has been considered to amplify the beauty of the pearl.



Looking for something completely unique? The freshwater Baroque Pearl Rectangle Earrings may just be the thing! With a beautiful blush and sharp luster, the earrings have a completely unique rectangular form and dangle asymmetrically from their axis.


The pearl itself features folds and is reminiscent of satin fabric. These earrings are the ultimate subtle luxury.
