Trios Studio hosts Pearls of the World exhibit, sale

SUBMITTED PHOTO - People have long been captivated by the beauty of pearls. Trios Jewelry Studio will host the Pearls of the World exhibit opening March 14 with a special open house event.

Trios Jewelry Studio will present its annual Pearls of the World exhibit and sale starting with a kick-off open house and party from noon - 5 p.m. March 14. This free exhibit will be on display through March 21. Those attending can learn about pearls through the ages — from the Renaissance era through today — and famous pearls throughout history.

“For thousands of years, pearls have captivated those who have worn them,” said Mary Wong, one of the owners of Trios Studio. “They were coveted by royals and sought after by explorers. In fact it wasn’t the search for gold that found the New World — early explorers were looking for a faster route to India, the source of pearls at the time.”

Trios Studio will be showcasing the ever growing variety of types, shapes and colors available with a new collection of original pearl designs and educational displays. Included are pearls from Tahiti, Japan, China, the South Seas, Australia and the Sea of Cortez.

Pearl specialist Koji Kawamoto of Japan will hold a trunk show of his collection at Trios Studio for the open house.

“Koji travels the world to find the most interesting and fine pearl strands to share with his followers. He says that there is a trend toward longer pearl strands, ala Coco Chanel, and multi-color Tahitian and south sea combinations in Baroque shapes,” Wong said.

Trios Studio is located at 3 Monroe Parkway Suite I in Lake Oswego. The open house hours are noon to 5 p.m. Refreshments will be served for the March 14 event. The exhibit is available for viewing during regular store hours, 10:30 a.m. to

6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
