‘Honora’ a fresh new look at pearls

HONORA - ZYLO PUNDA (2)Purity and modesty are expressed by pearls.

Pearl jewelry is often included in a family heirloom, passed along from grandmother to mother, and from mother to the daughter. Pearls can express an elegance and romance, making these the perfect gift item for a lady.

ZYLO in PUNDA has just received the pearl jewelry brand, Honora.

For over 60 years, Honora, stands for value and quality in the jewelry industry. Honora is the largest importer of Freshwater Pearls in the United States, creating fashionable and affordable pearl jewelry using an array of Freshwater Pearl shapes, colors and sizes.

All from accessible price points to one-of-a-kind pieces.

Honora pearls are cultured pearls which are over 90% nacre (substance from which pearls are made), creating a more durable pearl. A single mollusk (similar to the shell of a clam) can produce on average 30 pearls, varying in shapes and sizes. Pearls colors vary between pink, ivory, natural gray, and violet hues. First generation pearls grow in the water for 2 to 6 years; the longer a mollusk stays in the water, the larger the pearl will become. A mollusk, grows in freshwater lakes, ponds and river throughout China and can grow to become the size of a dinner plate.

Care Instructions for pearls

Avoid allowing perfumes, skin creams, hair sprays and other cosmetics, come in contact with pearls. Nacre is porous, so the chemicals can alter the quality of the pearl “skin”. Put your pearls on, after all cosmetics have been applied and completely absorbed. Remove pearls before swimming and showering. Chlorine can damage pearls, and even salt water will degrade the silk that the pearls are strung on. Restring your pearls whenever you see dirt in the knots, or the pearls seem loose and can “jiggle” on the string.

Style Tip

Once you settled for pearl jewelry of your desire, match this to your outfit, as pearls can enhance your wardrobe. Wear white pearls with a formal business outfit, for a sophisticated look. Or make a statement by layering pearl necklaces with a large design.

Pearls are timeless…
