This piece is a custom made strand of freshwater pearls that are baroque in shape giving them a nice luster and orient. These beautiful pearls are not too spotted on the outside. They’re a perfect piece for a casual or formal dress wear. Remember, we can help you customize just what you want!
We acquired a beautiful 2K 80 point Merelani mint green garnet. This particular shade of garnet is a grossularite garnet just like a Csarite might be. Lighter the color, lighter the shade and it is found in the same area as Csarite. We build a halo oval setting with a diamond bail on it creating the perfect piece for spring. You can see how beautiful the mint green looks with the light and when it moves around.
This elegant 1601 estate men’s stainless steel beauty is a 14K yellow gold Rolex on an alligator band. It is completely original with a champagne stick diamond dial and has been redone and re-polished. It is water and shock resistant. You can easily identify the mid-1970’s pieces by the acrylic dome crystal. The crystal is actually plastic while the newer Rolex’s crystals are sapphire and if you look closely at the dial, you can see the bezel at the edge. Newer Rolex’s dials are not bezel, making this 1970’s urban Rolex a unique dress watch.

Give her a gift unique as her with us at Murray Jewelry. Not one pearl is the exact same and Mr. Murray will explain to you the difference between these beauties.
When purchasing pearls, there are a number of things to look for like what color you want, quality, and shape. Your best pearls are graded on how round they are, how well they match if they’re the same size and the roundness of it. Also, you have to consider the outside cleanliness of the pearl and their pits.The first sets of pearls are a strand of double “A” quality. The luster, when lit, is reflected off and you can see the sharpness of the pearl with the beam of light.

This second set of pearls, you get a chalky look with a diffused light and there are many surface imperfections on the pearls. With this set, you don’t get very well matched pearls or the same roundness. This is a nice strand, just lower quality. It’s more of a fashion strand with golden pearls.
The third set of pearls are a white freshwater strand but if you look closely you can see that some of the beads are not all round. The luster is good and the external qualities of the pearls are nice but they’re not very well matched; therefore, leading to a lower priced pearl.
We have various amounts of pearls to choose from. We can help you pick out the perfect one and in your budget!
