Pearls by Jon De Porter
I love meeting designers of the fashion and jewelry variety and Jon De Porter is a bit of both. Though he has a degree in fashion design his passion lies in the bottom of the sea. I love his quote “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but PEARLS never outshine a woman’s beauty…” too true Jon too true!
His infatuation with pearls began when he visited the Beijing Pearl Market (an inspiration I can totally appreciate since my visit there just over four years ago). His knowledge of these beauties of the sea is vast and impressive as is his style of design. I truly hope his collection is picked up by more retailers so everyone can have a chance at seeing these pieces up close. Oh and just an FYI the prices are incredibly inexpensive. Like… Around $100 and up!
