June is Pearl Month! And More Behind the Scenes at HSN
June is Pearl Month!
Starting June 1 we launch brand new astonishing natural beauties – the organic wonder that are PEARLS. They are the only gems that require no cutting or polishing before they can be set into your jewelry. That isn’t the only thing that sets them on their own pedestal. Their colors, the luster, the glow that is so feminine, pearls are a kiss and blessing from mother nature.
Pearls are the official gem of June. It is the birthstone for June and it is practically a requirement for brides, but in a new way. We will always adore our white classics, but the colors, shapes and sizes of these natural miracles are on the cutting edge of fashion now.
More than ever we are thinking about our natural resources and the seas. The water on our planet is a sacred resource that we so frequently take for granted, right? Recently I switched my commute so I could see more water on the way to work. It just makes you feel better. While I keep my eyes on the road, hope springs eternal for a dolphin sighting! Peal harvests have suffered in recent years due to climate changes, pollution (saying prayers for our Gulf please) and viruses. All of this plus pearls becoming the new classic darling of the designers has caused an increase in price and a huge demand on the larger sizes. The reason the larger sizes are so hard to come by at reasonable prices elsewhere is because they live in the water longer. The longer in the waters, the more issues they may face. We are working closely with the pearl farmers to bring you what we can at the fairest value for all parties concerned. As a result, you will have a chance to acquire a new color in a pearl – are you ready?
Coral color – how perfect for your tan whether it is from the sun or sprayed on! This is going to make you feel like you are just back from the islands. Ahhh – I am so ready to go. Then the next color development, wait for it…NAVY and in a JUMBO size, 11-12mm. So Palm Beach, Bird Key, Capri. For the first lady look (amped up) they are available in white too. Speaking of oversized – oh the pink! The pink pearls for my Host Pick on the 5th of June are divine – available here on HSN.com. Obsessed is just the beginning of my feelings for this necklace. It sold out in seconds when it made its tv debut. It is just back and so limited..
Our pearl event is an annual tradition at HSN and this year is my favorite one by far. You don’t need to be getting married, graduating or celebrating a communion, the jewelry is spectacular on its own. If you do happen to have one of those occasions to use as an excuse to enjoy the bounty, lucky you! But we are all lucking out because Sandy, our Buyer has been working it. The Today’s Special on June 1st is absolutely essential and the value is going to make it oh so attainable. It is pearls and more..then more!
More behind the scenes photos coming soon…
Big hugs, Shivan
