Defying trend, defining style, pearls are exceptionally classic. A Tahitian pearl is formed by a singular variety of oyster found only in the South Pacific. The beauty in cultured freshwater pearls lies in their seeming lack of perfection—each is unique in shape and glowing color, selected and matched to create superb jewelry. Perhaps that’s why these lustrous gems have found an enduring place among icons of style, and why they have graced the jewelry cases at Gump’s for more than 150 years.
