Imperial Pearl hasn’t strayed from the contemporary design path it embarked on last year, adding more front-to-back earrings, ear climbers, open rings, and other modern looks to its collections at JCK Las Vegas 2015. It’s thrilling to see a traditional jewelry-maker like the East Providence, R.I.–based firm tap a more fashion-forward vein, and when coupled with its vast resources and pearl inventory, the fresh, finished pieces hit an astonishing price point. That’s the case with this new crescent necklace, made in 14k rose gold with freshwater pearls, amethysts, and diamonds for $875 retail. The current colors and silhouettes have wide appeal to many, and because the price doesn’t even break the $1,000 mark, the piece is sure to end up in myriad collectors’ jewelry boxes, including my own.
