A Timeless Tradition Since 1854
At the Add-A-Pearl Company our goal is to provide the finest quality pearls available along with an ongoing commitment to protect and support only responsible use of our natural resources. The Add-A-Pearl Company supports those pearl farms where baby oysters are given exceptional care and proper nutrition. Dedicated care and nurturing is needed over the next 2 – 5 years. Nutrients are provided and each oyster regularly inspected and cleaned to ensure that harmful bacteria do not invade the oysters. Depending on the ocean temperatures, oyster depths are continually adjusted to ensure the best possible environment for happy and healthy oysters.
The Add-A-Pearl Company supports gold mining practices that favor protecting the fragile environments of gold mining areas. We source gold chain only from sectors that firmly understand the impact gold mining has on nature conservation, ensuring that the major threats to the human and physical environments that result from mining are minimized. Since a substantial increase of gold mining has occurred, the Add-A-Pearl Company strives to promote mining practices that maintain the social and cultural fabric of local communities due to the influx of migratory miners.
Add-A-Pearl's Higher Standards
Through the years, its unique gift-giving legacy continues to grow, just like the beauty of each Add-A-Pearl necklace continues to grow. We have always taken great care to ensure that each and every pearl on an Add-A-Pearl necklace has been meticulously selected to match in color, size, and luster. The pearls are then hand-strung on pure silk to maintain a strong necklace that will dazzle year after year. The Add-A-Pearl name adorning the clasp is your assurance that we stand behind the authenticity and fine quality of your necklace.
The Add-A-Pearl company is a division of Juergens & Andersen Company, manufacturers of fine jewelry since 1854 and the largest importer of natural pearls in the country. Located in Chicago, Illinois, Juergens & Andersen Co. is the originator and owner of the Add-A-Pearl name and trademarked product.
