“One new piece that I am exceptionally excited about is the Olive branch bib necklace. As beautiful as it looks in pictures, it’s even more stunning around the neck. This bold statement piece effortlessly fills in the neckline.” Aaron Henry

The Cortez Pearl @ Tucson
GJX Show in the tent – Booth #508
(across from the Tucson Convention Center)
“This year we have a couple of things to show our visitors, including a magnificent multi-colored Cortez Pearl necklace: the first one for the year 2012. This particular necklace (code 2012-A) was on the designing table since 2009 and our associate Manuel Nava found the necessary pearls to finalize it just this new year. Although it does not contain any pearls from this year’s harvest, we decided to give it this year’s blessings.
We will also have our usual assortment of loose Cortez Cultured Pearls, Mabe Pearls (including some blisters) and some Silver Jewelry items. So, come on over and check out our unique pearls, learn how difficult it is to grow these Fair Trade beauties and get all the information straight from the oyster’s mouth: we’ll be happy to share a moment with you. “
