Pearl Jewellery UK

The pandemic has been a mixed blessing for the Pearl Jewellery UK market, on the one hand the lock down has given people less opportunity to socialise and to dress up, whereas on the other hand it has given many women more time to spend shopping online, and for some slightly more disposable income to spend on luxuries, perhaps using the budget usually consumed by nights out and holidays?

As an online retailer based in the UK the lockdown has given us a further challenge, how to buy pearls when travel to suppliers is off limits? In normal times we might visit the Hong Kong Jewellery Show, generally held each February, which assembles the worlds largest selection of cultured pearls, with over 1,000 pearl farm suppliers showing their pearls in the Pearl Hall at the Jewellery Show. Sifting through the tons of pearl strands and lose pearls to find the best quality and value items to make Pearl Necklaces or Pearl Earrings takes days.

Pearl Jewellery UK - Buying Pearls

HK Jewellery Show Pearls

However last year the Jewellery Show was cancelled, and this year it has been moved to June and it’s still questionable whether it will go ahead or whether we will be able to travel to Hong Kong. At Pearl Jewellery Online we are fortunate that the Hong Kong Show is only a small part of our sourcing activity, and that we have a range of suppliers with whom we have worked for over a decade whom we can trust to supply to our quality standards, even when working remotely. In addition we are fortunate to have a Pearl Expert in Hong Kong, Pierre, who can liaise directly with suppliers and ensure only quality items are shipped. Even so we’ve had to double down on our QC activity when Pearl Jewellery arrives in the UK.

Pearls are a natural item and visual inspection for colour, shape, size, surface imperfections and lustre is a key part of ensuring that only the best quality pearls are made into Pearl Jewellery, it can never become an automated process and requires skill and experience.

The Covid Pandemic may have changed the way that consumers buy their Pearl Jewellery in the UK, and as an online retailer we hope the increased share of Pearl Necklaces, Pearl Earrings and other Pearl Jewellery being purchased online will be maintained, however we also know that once the pandemic recedes and travel restrictions are lifted that our interactions with Pearl Farms in Asia will return to the previous pattern, and hopefully we will also see the Hong Kong Jewellery Show return to its normal February slot, even though it means a return to days of eye testing work and negotiations in the Pearl Hall.

Mother’s Day Gifts

What are the traditional Mother’s Day Gifts? Well actually Mothers Day is a relatively new celebration, it was first celebrated in 1908 in the US, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother and began a campaign to get the Mother’s Day made a national holiday in the US. The celebration of Mothers has spread around the World, though the dates chosen vary and in the UK we celebrate Mothering Sunday on the fourth Sunday in Lent, which this year is 14th March 2021. Some countries already had a tradition of celebrating motherhood and have adopted some of the characteristics of the US celebration, such as giving Mother’s Day Gifts.

Leverback Earrings – Pearl

Leverback Earrings came to prominence in the 1880’s as a more secure, style of earring fitting vs the traditional post or hook fittings which had been used since antiquity.Lever Back Pearl Earrings

The initial popularity of Leverback Earring fittings for Fine Jewellery, in Silver or Gold, was due to the fact that they decreased accidental loss of an earring due to their secure hinged clip fittings.

Gold Leverback Pearl Earrings

Leverback Earrings are also called ‘snap back’, ‘key’ also ‘European Fitting’ or ‘German Wire’ earrings, being initially more popular in Europe than the US, and can be used to create both a stud or drop and dangle effect.

At Scintilla Fine Jewellery we stock a wide range of Pearl Earrings with Leverback fittings, including Button Stud, Coin Pearl & Drop & Dangle Styles.

Coin Pearl Leverback Earrings

Prices range from just £19.95 for our 6mm Leverback Drop Earrings through to £99.95 for our 7mm Round Akoya Pearls on 14ct Gold Lever Backs

Leverback Drop Earrings

The key feature of all Leverback Earrings is a clasp that snaps shut, and regular users of Leverbacks cite three main reasons for their choice of fitting:

  1. Comfort – They rounded both front and back, so are comfortable even when you are lying down.
  2. Security – As Jewellers we’ve been contacted by people who’ve lost a Hook Earring or even a Stud Earring, however we’ve never been contacted by someone who’s lost a Leverback Earring. These fittings snap closed and aren’t going to fall off even if you are playing sport! They are a great choice for high value items in gold with precious jewels such as pearls.
  3. Style – Leverbacks make no style compromise and look beautiful both with Drops hanging below the ear, and even can be used, as with our Button Pearl Earrings, to create a snug fit on the front of the ear.
