Looking for inexpensive but high quality pearls? Check out Black Lotus Designs, a small business run in part by two entrepreneurial, caring, smart and fun women I know from Penn State. I have purchased several items from them for some of the ladies in my life, most recently for Christmas, and they've all been very pleased with the products. The firm offers freshwater Chinese pearls grown from live tissue. They import pieces directly from a family in China that handles their creation from growth to final product. Cutting down on the amount of people who handle the pieces before they arrive on your doorstep keeps prices very reasonable. I'm not an expert on jewelry, but I know I was happy with what they sell.
