The Pearl Source is a well know, quality pearl wholesaler in the jewelry district in downtown Los Angeles. Normally, the public cannot buy from these jewelry wholesalers, but The Pearl Source has a web site for sales to the public. You are getting the same high quality pearls that sold to jewelers, and you are getting them at a discount. You will find some pearl jewelry at prices that are up to 70% below what you might find in jewelry stores. Pearl jewelry prices in general are up by about 30% in the last five years, and pearls are holding on to their value in this recession -- so pearls can make a perfect gift now. The Pearl Source sells pearl necklaces, earrings and rings and some designs include diamonds. Check them out at http://www.thepearlsource.com or call them at (866) 87-PEARL.
