The blue pearl
When you see someone
You are overcome by the irresistible urge to steal another look.
It seems only fitting that Eyris Blue Pearls will be distributed by the owner of the domain www.pearls.com and the tag line ‘We are Pearls’. Having the expertise in pearling that spans several generations’ means that Peter Bazar, President of Imperial-Deltah, immediately saw an opportunity with these rare blue pearls that are unique to New Zealand. He saw the quality of the abalone gems and decided to go on his own journey to Christchurch, New Zealand where he met the man behind the Blue Pearl – Roger Beattie and to see this pearl process first hand.
Roger Beattie, Managing Director of Eyris Blue Pearls was inspired by the discovery of several natural abalone pearls in New Zealand and started the quest for the Blue Pearl 20 years ago. The blue pearl is a product of the Haliotis Iris or Paua Shell which is native to New Zealand and can only be gathered by free-diving in often adverse weather conditions. It takes up to three years to culture each pearl and the overall success rate for saleable pearls is only 25 percent.
Roger has recognized the potential of the US market for some time, “We have been looking for the right partner in the US, we feel fortunate to be working with Imperial-Deltah. Beyond their professionalism and design for flair we see a real enthusiasm; they get the Blue Pearl."
