Support your Favorite on Small Business Saturday

This November 24th is Small Business Saturday®, a day to celebrate and support the local small businesses that boost the economy and invigorate neighborhoods across the country.

Nearly everyone has a list of sales and gifts to be purchased on the traditional inaugural Christmas shopping day, however, so many people forget about Small Business Saturday, the day after Black Friday. It is common to forget about smaller businesses as deal busters but most do provide their customers with deep discounts before the holidays!

All businesses have to start somewhere, and that somewhere is Small.  Consider the garage days for the founders of large companies like Microsoft or Apple. They didn’t get to where they are without effort and growth.

A small business is defined broadly — as a company with 500 or fewer employees. In all reality, it is the small businesses that keep the local economy alive. In a recent article “18 Amazing Facts About Small Businesses In America,” it was stated that small businesses contribute to over 40% of Americans’ payrolls, while nearly 80% of all new jobs are created by small businesses. In the same article however, it was suggested that only 50% of small businesses stay open over 5 years due to the likelihood of bankruptcy.

Pearls International is proud to take part in Small Business Saturday, and we’re encouraging everyone to Shop Small® here on November 24th. Plus, we’re having a special Small Business Saturday celebration offer! Shop online or come in to the shop on November 24th and you’ll get 20% OFF your entire purchase, plus FREE gift wrap! Stop in for the newest and timeless styles offered in the freshwater and saltwater pearl jewelry market.

News from Pearls International: It’s Our Birthday!

WORLD-CLASS GEM CUTTER CELEBRATES THIRD YEAR IN BUSINESS

Pearls International brings high-fashion jewelry to Daytona Beach Shores

Many residents of Daytona Beach Shores don’t know there is a living legend in their own backyard. Jim Stradley, the owner and jeweler at Pearls International in Daytona Beach Shores, has singlehandedly affected the path of the jewelry industry for the past 45 years.

Beginning in 1967 with a small lapidary company in the western United States, Stradley rapidly became known for his avant-garde styles and for tackling large-scale projects that other cutters avoided. His notable achievements have included cutting three of the world’s largest gem-quality amethysts and a softball-sized blue topaz that topped 2200 carats. Some of his cut gems are a part of the Smithsonian Institute’s collection.

Stradley worked tirelessly to develop new styles of cutting gems to maximize their inherent color and refractive properties. Many of his signature cutting methods are now used by jewelers around the world to increase the brilliance and sparkle of traditional stone shapes.

In 2009, Stradley left gem-cutting  in favor of a new venture, pearls. He set up shop on A1A, and now spends his time creating affordable one-of-a-kind pearl jewelry and gifts. Pearls International carries exotic and unusual  pearl jewelry incorporating pearls from around the world. On the affordability of his art, Stradley quips that he would ”rather charge lower prices and get beauty into people’s hands, than charge high prices and keep the beauty locked up in the store.”

Pearls International is marking its third anniversary in business this month by holding a “Party with the Pearls,” Red-Tag Celebration Sale from March 19th-31st.
