I just received a beautiful freshwater pearl bracelet (that was carefully hand-carried and delivered from the East Coast) as a gift and learned the amazing story behind One Pearl™ jewelry. Theresa Wing Hines is the founder behind this special concept that sells pearl necklaces, pearl bracelets and semiprecious stone jewelry. Each piece features their patented contrasting black or white pearl design. My bracelet was even more unique, as it arrived with the iconic thumbprint from my school which represents that each child is truly an individual. Many pieces including the strands arrive with special directions on how to wear the jewelry in so many different ways. Love that!
Each item you order is carefully wrapped in their signature, almost Pacific blue, silk jewelry pouch made by a Cambodian women’s foundation. And, as they say, wait, there is more. One Pearl has a unique selection of signature silk ties and amazing multi-colored, pastel scarves.
Here’s the incredible part of the story. They donate 100% of their profits to non-profit organizations to benefit children’s health and education programs. The contrasting pearl on each One Pearl necklace and bracelet symbolizes the child who is helped through your purchase. Some schools are even starting a graduation tradition by gifting young men school ties and each graduating girl a One Pearl bracelet. Now that’s special. Prices start at about $45 and range to $125 and up. They will even customize a special program for you.
Some of The B&B’s personal favorites are the blue topaz necklace and bracelet, the semiprecious black lava strand (for $75) and, of course, all the freshwater pearl choices. Go through the site. You will find great gift ideas for brides, graduation, showers and birthdays. To learn more and support a great cause, visit onepearl.com.
