Haywards pearl studs make a great gift
Pearl earrings are a classic gift that will never date

Japanese Akoya Pearl Earrings

Classic and timeless, Japanese Akoya Pearls have a nice lustre and shine, making them a popular choice. However, depending on the quality and size of the pearls, they can vary in price quite significantly. Fairly large, 8-9mm pearl studs set in 18K white gold, for example, start at about HK$5,000. One way to upgrade a simple pair of studs is to add a halo of tiny round brilliant diamonds or diamond drops, making them versatile for both daytime and evening wear.

If you’re not ready to make a larger spend on diamond stud earrings, a great way to get a beautiful look for around $10,000 is to opt for “illusion set” earrings. Smaller-sized diamonds are set in clusters, giving off a wonderful brilliance for a fraction of the cost of large diamond studs.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to designing a pendant. Various intricate designs or even classic simple options set with many tiny round brilliant diamonds offer a stunning look without having to be overly expensive. If you’re looking for something a little bit more impressive, opting for a piece of jewellery in the range of $15,000 to $25,000 would most definitely make that special someone in your life very happy.

Depending on the colour, clarity and size of the diamonds, tennis bracelets can vary in price starting at around $50,000 for a bracelet set with .10ct G/SI diamonds. Bracelets can be personalised in many ways – for example, you can substitute diamonds for other gemstones or by adding a subtle charm.
