Don’t miss Honora’s first Tahitian pearl design


Ralph Rossini Hi, Ralph Rossini from Honora here!

One of our favourite things here at Honora is when we get to show you something new. Sure, we love bringing you expanded collections of popular colours or to bring back old favourites, but there is just something electric when introducing something that we have never been able to bring to QVC before.

Never has this been so true than with our upcoming Today's Special Value on Thursday 7th April, our first ever Tahitian item for QVC UK.

Throughout our 65 year history, we have sold a variety of cultured pearls, including South Sea and of course, the freshwater pearls you know us for here on QVC. Until now, it was impossible to bring enough Tahitian pearls to QVC at a price and quality that we felt comfortable calling Honora.

So what changed? On a recent buying trip, our most trusted and valued farmer in China introduced us to the pre-eminent Tahitian farmer in the world. We immediately jumped at the chance to partner with him and the rest, as they say, is history!

Honora Tahitian pearl and silver necklace Together we created a chic pearl and chain necklace, bringing a fashionable 'Honora look' to classic Tahitian pearls. These naturally coloured ringed pearls will range from 8mm all the way up to 11.5mm. Black pearls have always been exciting and mysterious by nature, but when they naturally come directly from the pristine waters of Tahiti… well, the look is truly a Today's Special Value.

As if the introduction of Tahitian was not enough, our upcoming shows mark the arrival of our annual pearl harvest. This event is such an exciting time for us at Honora as we never know what we will be able to bring to QVC until the farmers begin harvesting in late September.

Honora Cultured Freshwater Pearl Necklace It takes months of sorting, processing and searching until we are able to bring you that coveted top 3% of this year's crop. We are especially eager to show you the larger and more unique pearls that come from these early months of harvest.

Collectors should be on the lookout for special pieces including our Cultured Freshwater Pearl Flower Pendant & Sterling Silver Chain, Honora Cultured Freshwater Coin Pearl Necklace the classic Cultured Freshwater Pearl 46cm Necklace and the simply astounding Cultured Freshwater Coin Pearl 44cm Necklace Sterling Silver. You're not going to want to miss the very first look at of this year's harvest!  

We can't wait to see what you think of our new and exciting Tahitian pearl necklace… especially the price! It's our hope that this new partnership will be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Be sure to join us for our special Pearl Harvest shows on Thursday 7th April aand be one of the first to experience Tahitian pearls from Honora!

Best regards,

    This is great news and I look forward to seeing the pearls.
    I had hoped that with the timing of the royal wedding towards the end of April, this early April’s TSV from Honora would have been a red white & blue pearl necklace or bracelet set. This would have been a great addition for us. Missed opportunity?
    But it will be lovely to see what Ralph brings to us.

    Hi Ralph,
    Love all your pearls, will you be bringing any bracelets in “Sunrise” to match the floating pearl necklace.

    Hi Ralph,
    I was so hoping that this visit you might bring the red/white/blue collection you did as “Americana” for QVC US. It would have tied in so well with our upcoming Royal Wedding and with our Union Jack colours – not to mention my birthday of July 4th!! I know a lady did phone in last year and spoke to you with a request for this collection and you said she may be surprised by what was coming up this year, so I too am living in hope you will bring this to us.
    Thanks so much,

    Looking forward to seeing your shows this week. I already have four floating necklaces, (which I love to wear), and would love to buy one in indigo/teal/purple colour scheme. How about a magnetic pearl clasp so that if they clasp moves round to the front, it won’t matter!

    I have many Honora pearl pieces which I absolutely love and never get tired wearing. If possible, the one piece I would really like to get is a classic double strand white pearl necklace which would be the icing on the cake!!

    Hi Ralph
    Nice to see back at QVC. I have been on waitlist for 688512, the peacock necklace that was a TSV last year to match my bracelets for months now, but I’m still waiting. When will you be bringing it back?
    Look forward to seeing you on the shows tomorrow.

    Hi Ralph.
    I have many pieces of Honora Pearls, they are all so different and so beautiful. The pearls are lovely and the colours, well they are something else. I really feel proud to wear the pearls, whether they are the plain white or the coloured ones. They certainly get admired. Well done Honora for bringing such beautiful pearls to QVC.

    Hi Ralph,
    I just love watching the Honora presentations on QVC – the pearls are all so fabulous.
    I purchased a set of pearl stud earrings (7 pairs,all different colours)nearly three years ago and they have been so useful.
    Sadly, I lost one of the pink ones yesterday – the butterfly back wasn’t tight enough, so I wondered if you could help me find a replacement?
    The QVC item number for this set was 680403 – will you be showing this one again? I hope so – pearl stud earrings are such a classic and can be worn any time, any place.
