Quality and value guaranteed
Let me share with you how all this started and my journey into Pearls.
Well, my globe trotting, away-all-the-time partner spent some time working in South East Asia, in the Philippines, Vietnam, Laos,and China.
The deal was that I would come out for a while and make sure he wasn’t having too much fun. I spent a lot of time travelling around Laos,
Hong Kong and the Philippines and the Islands of that beautiful country. I also spent a lot of time shopping and searching out bargains!
One day I discovered Pearls, beautiful, round, glowing pearls of every shape, size and colour. I brought some back for my friends and family and they loved them. Since that day I have travelled throughout South East Asia, Laos, Thailand, China, Hong Kong discovering more and more Pearls.
I found that I had a real passion for Pearls. I wanted to bring them back to allow more and more people to enjoy the best pearls from Asia at affordable prices.
So I started up ilovemypearls, an on-line and retail based business selling top quality Pearls at prices that make sense.
All the Pearls are chosen by me and the team, one of whom has been certified by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) in Pearls. This ensures that you get the best quality Pearl to enjoy. Whether you are celebrating an Anniversary, Wedding, or Birthday or whether you are looking for that perfect gift, you can be sure that Pearls will always be appreciated. Wearing Pearls will give you a style and sophistication that reflects natural beauty. There’s a lot of confusion over Pearls and what are good Pearl
Well, you could spend a small fortune on buying specific brands or types of Pearls such as South Sea Pearls or Japenese Akoya. These are great Pearls but they are expensive. I discovered really good quality Freshwater Pearls (Pearls grown in molluscs in Fresh water rather than in sea water) at great prices. That’s what ilovemypearls is all about. Rings, bracelets, necklaces or pendants, we have them all.
I wear Pearls every day-and for every occasion –women who wear Pearls know that Pearls reflect light in such a way that it enhances the tone of the complexion-they make you look well! They are natural and organic, long lasting, always in fashion, always appropriate to wear, romantic, and enduring.
Small is beautiful…………
And here at I love my Pearls, we are a small business. Located on the east coast of Ireland, near the small village of Courtown. I run the business with the main aim to give you great quality Pearls at great prices. We’re not a large operation and keep a close eye on all our products and costs. We don’t have big departments and lots of overheads, we keep things tight and that’s why we can offer you real pearls at such good prices. We deal directly with wholesalers at source – both pearl farm and manufacturer. Just check out other websites or go to your local jewellers and see if they can match our prices and our quality. Our pearls are good quality -either AA or AA+ or AAA. We only sell Freshwater pearls and not the more expensive sea water pearls, these are the Akoyas, South Sea and Tahitian. These pearls are much more expensive -literally a necklace could cost anything from $750 to $10,000. By concentrating on the more available and affordable freshwater pearls we can make sure you get really good pearls, and can offer you a great selection of different freshwater pearls.
So, rest assured you’re buying the genuine article.
When you buy on line, you want to be assured that you are buying the genuine article. That’s why we provide a copy of the certificate of identification and authenticity, together with quality assurance labels from the Zhejiang Freshwater Pearl Inspection Bureau to show you that your Pearls are the genuine article.
Not only that but we make doubly sure that the Pearls are great quality by having our Pearl expert maintain strict quality control on all Pearls. Our team member has completed the program requirements of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA-the world’s foremost authority in Gemology) and achieved their Diploma in Pearls.
