As Big Ticket Items Sales Struggle, Freshwater Pearl Jewelry Gains Popularity

With a struggling economy, more and more people are turning to freshwater pearl jewelry for that lavish look without the exorbitant cost.

San Diego, CA, November 07, 2008 --(PR.com)-- As the holidays approach, retailers of big ticket items are getting concerned. With the economy locked in a bitter struggle, luxury items aren’t on the top of everyone’s to-do list, but there is no reason not to be able to celebrate the holidays in style this year, says a woman for OrientalPearls.net, one of the largest freshwater pearl suppliers on the net.

“People are finally coming to terms with the fact that you can have the look without the expense,” says Lan Toma. “ In the past giving a pearl necklace or bracelet as a gift was considered extravagant. With the luxury gift market struggling, more and more people are turning to freshwater pearl jewelry for that lavish look without the exorbitant cost.”

OrientalPearls.net owns their own pearl farms in the waters offshore China. “This allows us to cut out the extra cost a middleman brings to the table,” said Lan Toma. “We can offer the highest quality pearls at the lowest cost because the pearls come directly from the pearl farm to our craftsmen. We simply create what the customer has envisioned, and it ships out directly to them.”

Both crafted pearl jewelry in a variety of styles and custom made pieces are available from OrientalPearls.net. “If the customer sees something they like, but they want a different size or color of pearl, we can make it - usually without any extra cost,” Lan Toma said. “We also will design pearl jewelry according to customer specifications. This is a great option if you are trying to give a unique gift.”

With the holidays approaching, OrientalPearls.net is winding down their summer clearance and back to school sales and concentrating on the coming season with a fall sale on south sea shell pearl pendant for as low as $6.99, set in 925 pure sterling silver. Although big ticket item sales are expected to be low this year, Lan Toma says the company’s not worried.

“When people realize that they can have that expensive look without breaking the bank, they come back for more. www.OrientalPearls.net has hundreds of pearl jewelry items that are priced for the average buyer, but the quality of our products is such that you can’t tell the difference between a necklace from our craftsmen or a eighty thousand dollar strand from a competitor. This is what sets apart and brings our customers back to us year after year.”
