Treasures From The Vault

Birthstones connect rare and unique gemstones with the months of the year. They can be a meaningful gift for those celebrating a birthday or birth when that month's stone is incorporated into handcrafted, one-of-a-kind jewelry that tells a unique story.


Pearls, June's birthstone, 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 everyone. I'm excited to take you through a few of my favorite loose pearls in the vault.


The loose pearls you see here are available for purchase and I would LOVE to work with you to transform them into a custom piece.


Be sure to reach out to hello@originaleve.com if something catches your eye!

 

Loose Pearls from the Vault


Confession: I have a bit of a pearl problem.


I have many pearls in the vault that are filled with allure and beauty. I have purchased these pearls for Original Eve over several years, but not all of these beautiful pearls have made their way into finished jewelry... Yet!


See the Pearls below and be sure to contact me if any of these glorious pearls have caught your eye. I would love to work with you to transform them into a custom piece. hello@originaleve.com

 

Baroque Pearl Pairs

1. Pearl Pairs


No two pearls are exactly the same, which means that even beautifully matched pearls (like those seen here) will feature variations in color, luster, and shape.


These pearl pairs are gorgeous baroque pearls in very unique shapes and would make stunning additions to your jewelry repertoire.


Ideas:

  • Sophisticated cufflinks

  • Drop Earrings with cap tops such that the pearls are suspended from the tops

  • Dancing or Trapeze earrings that allow the pearls to move and capture light along their glowing surfaces


Rectangular Birthmark Pearl

2. Rectangular Pearl with Pearl Birthmark


A rectangular scoop of smooth pearl is punctuated by a spherical pearl birthmark in this one-of-a-kind pearl.


Ideas:

  • Suspended from two loops at either end, this pearl could glide along a chain either as is or with other spherical pearls or diamonds scattered across its surface.

  • A stunning multi-finger ring

  • A brooch


Purple Pearl Pair

3. Purple Pearl Pair


Two Purple-Pink button-shaped pearls radiate joy with their sharp luster and happy coloration!


Ideas:

  • These pearls would make beautiful earrings with the edge framed with a thin border of gold while being suspended from the top in drop earrings that allow for movement

  • Gorgeous large button-shaped studs!

  • Cufflinks that would *pop*



Rose-Shaped Pearl Coin

4. Rose Shaped Pearl Coin


A rose in any other material would not be so naturally stunning and sweetly original! The organic form of this one-of-a-kind pearl undeniably looks like an unfurling rose, lending itself to beautiful creative possibilities.


Ideas:

  • This pearl would make a beautiful brooch. We could play up the rose factor with a gold stem, leaves, and maybe a dew drop or two in a rose cut moonstone or diamond!

  • A beautiful centerpiece for a necklace

  • A rose of a ring!



Miniature Tahitian Pearls

5. Miniature Tahitian Pearls


Extraordinarily rare miniature Tahitian pearls that range from 5-8mm in diameter. Typically, Tahitian Pearls grow to be one of the largest species of saltwater pearls in existence with diameters ranging from 8-18mm on average. These unique pearls are very small without sacrificing the satin luster, richly hued body color, and complex orient for which Tahitian Pearls are beloved.


Ideas:

  • We can recreate the Miniature Tahitian Pearl Jungle Bracelet, seen HERE

  • Clustered together, we could create a beautiful set of Mini Tahitians for drop earrings or cufflinks

  • Several pairs of stud earrings could be made from this mix!

  • Rings featuring your favorite pearls


Mother of Pearl and Quartz Doublets

6. Mother of Pearl and Rock Crystal Geometric Slices


With a backing of Mother of Pearl radiating luster and pearlescent nuance through the step-cut asymmetrical hexagonal rock crystal gems, these doublets offer a unique and stunning interaction with light that is rarely seen!


Ideas:

  • The front to back drill at the tip of the gems make these gems perfect for earrings in the Original Eve Dancing Setting. (See HERE for an example of this setting style)

  • Can be set as stunning cufflinks

  • Would be beautifully combined with diamonds and/or pearls


Elongated Pearl Sticks

7. Pearl Sticks


A close look at these unique gems reveals twists and turns in these elongated pearls that allow light to dance across their surface


Ideas:

  • Stunning tie pins

  • The smaller phantom quartz gems would be beautiful rings that you could study with every wear!



Conjoined Pearl Coins

8. Perfume Bottle Pearls


Like clouds in the sky, identifying the image within conjoined pearls can create hours of fun and imagination. To me, these pearls resemble perfume bottles--luxurious objects that hold sweetness and mystique.


Ideas:

  • The pearls could be designed into asymmetrical earrings with the addition of peach and white pearls to create balance and harmony

  • Diamonds or pearls could be fixed onto the surfaces of these pearls, creating a composition in the luster.

  • What shapes or creatures do you see? Let's play up the vision with the addition of metal forms, gemstones, and shapes.


Keshi Pearl Strand

9. Keshi Pearl Strand


Irregular keshi freshwater pearls make for a stunning strand of light gray with the curved edges of the pearls radiating light and luster.


Ideas:

  • These pearls could be strung into a Candy Necklace with knots between each bead.

  • Gold beads could be sprinkled along the strand, adding contrast

  • The pearl strand could be mixed and matched with another strand for added color and interest


Round Pearl Coin

10. Palmable Pearl Coin


Nothing quite compares the to feeling of a pearl against the skin and the smooth flat surface of this palmable pearl coin feels wonderful! Its subtle cupped shape holds light in its center and its perfect circle form is delightful.


Ideas:

  • Bezel set the pearl to be a unique pendant

  • Attach the Leaf Motif to the top corners of the pearl to create a Pearl Coin Necklace (See HERE)

  • Balanced on the finger for a ring or on the wrist for a cuff, this pearl would catch your eye constantly in a custom ring or bracelet!
