San Francisco, CA, April 12, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Funky Oysters today announces the grand opening of their online store, FunkyOysters.com. The site features jewelry highlighting the colorful, versatile re-discovered freshwater pearl. The current collection is priced from $15-$80, a great value for jewelry featuring real pearls.
The freshwater pearl is currently going through a re-discovery phase. With improve-ments in quality, jewelers now have plentiful choices to craft unique pieces utilizing the pearls’ color, shape, and type. Mindful that customers may initially think of freshwater pearls as crinkly-shaped, Funky Oysters has collected pieces that show off the pearls’ iridescent colors and unusual shapes in classic, modern, and ultra-hip designs.
The Funky Oysters collection aims to make pearls fashionable again. The Classic collection showcases traditional styles with a hint of modernity, like using extra large oval pearls, or combining the luminous colors of lavender, peach, and beige in one strand. The Hipster collection uses popular designs with the flat, coin, drop, button, or square shapes. These designs can be combined with other jewelry for a truly unique look. The Designer collection shows off creative styles that otherwise would be too expensive for the average consumer.
A Funky Oyster special is the “lariat”, a creative take-off on the traditional necklace. Ranging from 40 - 60 inches, these strings of small pearls can be wrapped around the neck in multiple ways, creating a different look every time. Lariats come in many styles, varied by the type of pearl used, the colors combined, and the extra little accessories added to the long strand. This is the “it” accessory of the store.
“Pearls really add a touch of sophistication to anything you wear,” said Mellisa Andrade, Director of Marketing. “We all accessorize to get that certain look, and at Funky Oysters, you can find a variety of styles at prices that won’t break the bank. We think pearls should be affordable for everyone; they’re a great buy because these are the real thing.”
All jewelry is now available at FunkyOysters.com. Lariats are priced at $25, necklaces from $20-$80, bracelets $15-$25, and earrings $20-$25. New designs arrive frequently so inventory stays fresh.
