Event: Jewelmer's Pearl 101 and a Little Window Shopping7/13/2010Shen
When I got another invite from Kankan of Yehey to attend a Pearl Talk 101 with Jewelmer, I jumped at the chance. I've done my own research about pearls but I still want to know more, especially from the people who makes it their live's mission to help create beautiful perfect golden pearls.
Our location was inside Jewelmer Eastwood Mall.
There are two types of pearls.
Fresh Water Pearls that came from two-shelled mollusks that live in freshwater bodies, also kwown as mussels. Pearls from fresh water are created through tissue nucleation
Salt Water Pearls are those that came from two-shelled molusks that live in salt water bodies, also known as oysters. Pearls from salt water are created through bead nucleation.
Salt Sea Pearls are what Jewelmer is all about.
Pinctada Margaritifera could give birth to the wonderful coveted black pearls.
Pinctada Fucata (not shown) could give birth to the elegant white pearls. Mikimoto of Japan are famous for these type of pearls. If you watched Americas Next Top Model, one of the models were gifted with the famouse Mikimoto Pearls
I almost cried when I had to give this back.
Pinctada Maxima, the golden-lipped (the edge of the mother-of-pearl) gives birth the elusive South Sea Pearls. And the Golden South Sea Pearl is only found in our beautiful country, Philippines.
The result, a golden blush from each pearl.
It took a lot of will power to give this back. Now I wish i listened to mom to study harder. If I did, I would have gotten a high-paying job and buying this would have been a simple walk in the park.
Although these are cultured pearls and not those made entirely by Mother Nature, the interference that are made are assuredly minimal. For a pearl to cultivate, it takes almost 6 years... and with Jewelmer Pearl Farming, we have been told that interaction with the mollusks from its nucleation, cleaning and grafting are only about 700 times.
More so, I was impressed with how they have kept the environment free of pollution. Our virtual trip to its Pearl Farm in Palawan was enchanting. Clear sea water are these oysters home. Jewelmer believes that despite these interaction, only Mother Nature can create that perfect round pearl. So they help her by maintaining a en environment fit to harvest those coveted pearls.
I sincerely admire the whole process of pearl farming, human and nature working hand in hand. Something that many companies and manufacturers now have trouble doing. Most often, we take advantage of our nature for our gain. But Jewelmer led me to believe that there is hope for us to work together with Nature.
Best of all, we come out of it looking a lot more beautiful that we already was.
Oh pearl earrings... I love you.
My dream engagement ring. I'd much rather have a pearl (with diamond in it of course) as a engagement ring. I believe that finding your mate is quite similar to that finding a pearl from all the oysters of the sea bed. Like the Badjao's searching for a pearl, I'd like to think that from all the other girls that my mate could have been with, it is in me he saw that certain something that he needed.. and wanted.
Something for our children, charm bracelets that we can gift to them and help them in collecting.
Made of sterling silver but could be made with white gold.
I love this bracelet.. reminds me of sea creatures
Jewelmer also makes other jewelry. The gold also came from the Philippines.
Upon seeing this one, R and I decided that this should be our wedding rings.
Having had a chance to wear it, I can't believe how comfortable they are.
Jewelmer adapted the comfort-fit into these wedding bands, much like how we feel for our spouses.
