The Mended Pearl Experience
Highlighting Natural Beauty
Is there any jewel as captivating as a polished pearl? While diamonds and rubies form in the ground, pearls develop as the result of sand irritating the sensitive inner part of an oyster. Rather than try to remove what is hurting it, the oyster covers the irritant in layer upon layer of nacre, an iridescent coating, until a beautiful pearl is left in its place.
When used for jewelry, pearls distinguish themselves from other jewels yet again. While gemstones are their most beautiful the day they leave the store, pearls only grow more beautiful with use. Unlike sapphires, garnet, and other stones, pearls can be mended in the case of damage and become more lustrous with use.
We are all pearls. In our own lives we can testify that pain produces growth. Let us all take the time to step back and appreciate how we have grown and to realize that our beauty only increases with time and the special attention of our great Caretaker... this is the basis of the name Mended Pearl.
The Mission of Mended Pearl is to serve women on significant days of their lives by helping them to see the beauty they possess. Cosmetics and cameras are simply tools that can be used to highlight the radiance women possess. Sometimes just a little lipstick can be the polish that helps a pearl shine.
