Carved pearls. Pearls set with a sparkling brilliant diamond. Gemstone-enucleated pearls carved exposing a flash of color beneath the nacre of the pearl. To some, these products are extreme, an outrageous affront to the elegance of fine cultured pearls.

Because for Chi, pushing the envelope--whether that envelope contains pearls or gems or another precious element--is what creativity is all about.
