Since 1892, Imperial has been the country’s leading expert in pearls and a leading designer of pearl jewelry. Our three generations of pearl experts travel the world hand selecting rare pearls directly at the source, ensuring we have first pick of annual pearl harvests before they are even available to other companies. The fact that we are the largest independent pearl company in America allows us to leverage our unprecedented buying power to secure lots of pearls at prices others simply can’t obtain.
From Golden-Age of Cinema star Loretta Young to Rita Hayworth to Elizabeth Taylor to First Lady Nancy Reagan, Imperial Pearls have been the choice for discriminating fashionistas since the 1900’s. Over our decades in the business, we have established strong personal relationships with pearl farmers throughout the world while remaining industry leaders in jewelry design and craftsmanship.
Under the stewardship of three generations of the Bazar family, IMPERIAL Pearl – the largest independent pearl company in America – has become the pre-eminent global source not only for the finest pearls crafted by nature’s hand, but also for the most beautiful classic and contemporary pearl jewelry crafted by the hand of man.
Through the years, IMPERIAL designs, stunning and wholly original, have been worn by screen and television royalty – including Elizabeth Taylor, Loretta Young and Lucille Ball – and by women from all walks of life for whom taste, elegance, and sheer beauty are paramount.
The IMPERIAL Pearl tradition of excellence is reflected in designs both classic and contemporary. It is, in a word, timeless.
