I am so excited to launch one of our Hong Kong inspired designs, the Tara Necklace. A long and luscious necklace with nugget pearls and quatrefoil mother of pearl! Choose pink, white or black mother of pearl! You are going to love it!!
As many of you know, Tara is our amazing friend and Office Manager. She has been with The Pearl Girls for quite a while. She first started caring for our children in our childcare rooms, she then moved on as a part time office assistant and now she has been running the ship for over a year now. We love her so much! But she is moving on in life and love and we could not be more thrilled for her. And we care so excited to honor her as much as possible in the coming months before she goes!
On our March 2019 trip to Hong Kong, Tara told me about her love for the quatrefoil design. To which I responded, “Huh?” Well, here is a little research in case some of y’all are saying, “huh?” too.
A quatrefoil is the outline of a design of 4 overlapping circles in a symmetrical design. It is found pretty much everywhere… when you start looking! Lots of designers use it and many have tried to trademark it however it has origins in ancient art, architecture and Christian symbolism. It is akin to a four leaf clover with quatrefoil meaning four leaves.
It is one of those designs that is both current and trendy but steeped in tradition and symbolism, too. I love it. And, as you know, I love mother-of-pearl, too! So, here is our ode to Tara, a long necklace with quatrefoil mother of pearl on sterling silver scattered with pearls.
Available in White!
And, as usual, I do not have many of these to share! I hope you love this design and the meaning behind this special necklace!
