Pearls ~ Gifts from Nature
: Exquisitely formed creations, bestowed upon us by the oyster.
: Mysterious and fascinating, these natural beauties evolve layer over layer, year after year…sometimes decades.
: Found three feet deep in clear freshwater lakes and rivers, or thirty feet down in the darkness of our oceans, pearls warm so beautifully on your skin, creating a sensuous feeling you will always remember.
: With rare and lustrous colours, deep water ocean pearls range from the white, cream and golden hues of the South Seas to the deep grey and black of the Tahitian Islands.
: Freshwater pearls can vary from gentle tones of lavender to peach and every shade in between, harmonizing especially well with our skin.
: From perfectly round to wild or sculptural shapes, in multi-coloured strands and unusual combinations …anything is possible.
: Today pearl culturing and the expertise and care taken by farmers, make pearls more affordable and accessible than ever before…..everything is possible.
Pearls of Wisdom
Wear your pearls ~ their perfection is enhanced by the oils from your skin.
Avoid getting make-up and perfume on these natural beauties and wearing them in hot baths, showers, hot tubs and saunas. Alcohol in many products will dull the lustre of your pearls, while dampness and temperature changes create strain on their mineral structure. Both alcohol and moisture weaken the strength of the silk.
Hold the gold ends to open and close the clasp. This prevents stretching or breaking the silk.
Finally, if worn daily we recommend having your pearl silk checked for wear once a year. If worn less frequently, come in every second year. We will gladly check your silk at no extra cost.
From all of us at the Martinus Studio – enjoy your pearls!
