Trios Jewelry Studio will host its annual Pearls of the World exhibit and sale, starting with a kickoff open house from noon-5 p.m. March 12 at its Lake Oswego shop. This free exhibit and sale will be displayed through March 19. The event is intended to provide attendees an opportunity to learn about pearls throughout the ages, from the Renaissance era through today and about famous pearls throughout history.

According to Mary Wong, one of the three owners of Trios Jewelry Studio, pearls lay the foundation for many a personal jewelry collection today and are more popular than ever. The studio will be showcasing a variety of types, shapes and colors of pearls in a new collection of original pearl designs and educational displays. The exhibit includes pearls form Tahiti, Japan, China, the South Seas, Australia and the Sea of Cortez.

A special trunk show with Pearl Specialist Koji Kawamoto from Japan will be held on Saturday. Kawamoto travels the world seeking the most interesting and fine pearl strands to share with his followers. He says there is a trend toward longer pearl strands, such as those worn by Coco Chanel, and multicolored Tahitian and South Sea combinations in Baroque shapes.

All pearls and pearl jewelry will be discounted 15 percent during the event.

Trios Studio is located at 3 Monroe Parkway, Suite I, Lake Oswego. The store hours are 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday. Learn more by calling 503-496-1285 or visit triosstudio.com.
