(You only live once, right??) MIMI was the person who helped me and I was very happy with her knowledge, presentation, friendliness and hospitality. She was happy to... More

When we got to the store, she offered us drinks and told us about the pearl industry. She helped me pick an adorable pair of studs. The selection at her store... More

This is a family owned pearl store, very professional, very good selection of pearls and jewelry. We really appreciated Wendy's willingness to share information about their pearls and how they are created, harvested and graded. Wonderful experience, highly recommend them!
