The Real Pearl Co.

The allure of the pearl is timeless and universal. Since the beginning of history, the pearl has always been regarded as one of the rarest, most valuable and symbolic of gems and has been prized in every culture, from ancient China, India, Egypt, Rome, through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance to today.

In 2004, Caroline Haelterman and her husband, Hugh, set up The Real Pearl Co. Through The Real Pearl Co, Caroline re-creates historic jewelry into contemporary wearable art, thereby keeping over 5,000 years of jewelry history alive through her designs.
