Star of the West
In a time when collaborations are more important than ever, Pearls of Australia have teamed up with pre-eminent West Australian bridal designer Samantha Wynne to release an exclusive pearl jewellery range featuring Australian South Sea pearls from Cygnet Bay pearl farm (WA), designed and made with the quality, heritage and local craftsmanship that Wynne bridal gowns and Pearls of Australia are both renowned for. Named the ‘Star of the West’. It is a legendary tale about the most valuable pearl ever discovered in 1917, a story* now etched in Broome’s pearling history. Fast forward to 2020 where our version of the Star of the West pays homage to a contemporary collaboration, showcasing many firsts for West Australian design and featuring a stylised star emanating from an Australian pearl – the centrepiece of a ring, pendant and earring ensemble. Each piece is hallmarked by both Samantha Wynne and Pearls of Australia and features locally grown Australian South Sea pearls from Cygnet Bay pearl farm, with diamonds set in gold. The earrings and pendant have multi-functional components, allowing the wearer maximum versatility. Each item is available to be custom made in rose, yellow, and white gold with hand-selected pearls of the customer’s choice. True to the cornerstone of both businesses, each piece of the collection is crafted and designed uniquely in Western Australia.
