What Makes Coleman Douglas Pearls Unique?

At Coleman Douglas Pearls, we are dedicated to finding the perfect pearl for you. We are known for our award-winning designs, our worldwide expertise, and loved for our down-to-earth friendly welcome, but that’s not all. Read on as we look at a few of the characteristics that make us unique…

Meet The Designer

Born in Mexico to two famous artists, Chrissie was exposed to creativity and the discipline of good design from an early age - no wonder colour is one of her greatest inspirations, the key that defines the bold combination of playfulness, wearability and daily glamour. Chrissie started Coleman Douglas Pearls aged 29, mixing pearls with semi-precious stones and other more unusual materials like leather, silk and wood.

After Lucia Van Der Post crowned her the “Pearl Queen” in “How To Spend It” for the Financial Times she never looked back, winning numerous Tahitian design awards, worldwide; and collaborating with the likes of Tiffany & Co, the V&A, HRH Princess Anne; showcasing in Harrods, Liberty of London, Fortnum & Mason, Paris, Japan and the U.S.

“I create what I like to wear. It must be comfortable, versatile, unfussy, yet also tell a story - wearable art. The part I enjoy most is matching each client to their perfect pearl colour and shape; the lustre of a pearl literally “lights-up” your face, enhancing your natural beauty.”

Hand Crafted in Britain

All Coleman Douglas Pearls designs are handmade in our workshop. We also collaborate with British goldsmiths, silversmiths and precious-stone suppliers who are known for their excellent craftsmanship – together we make instantly recognizable commissions.  We take pride in our natural origins, we know our pearl farmers by name, sourcing only from those who meet our ethical standards. Each design is consciously produced for our wonderful clients who wear them.

Pearl Experts

As pearl specialists we will make you feel at home with our friendly, professional welcome, our confident pearl expertise and our ‘finger on the pulse’ knowledge of all that is going on in the pearl world.

We look forward to welcoming you and sharing our know-how, to help you pick out the perfect pearl for you.  Lustrous pearls are guaranteed to accentuate your natural beauty. This is because the eye of the beholder cannot separate the lustre of a pearl from the glow of your skin. With this in mind, choosing the right pearl colour for your unique skin tone is the best facelift you could ever have. The added bonus? It’s a lot less expensive and painless!

A Family Jeweller

We are a family-run company. We do not advertise, having grown purely through word of mouth. Our clients often become friends and our aim is to become your family jeweller. A mother-daughter duo, Chrissie is passing on her 35 years of expertise to her daughter, Natalia – a fun collaboration to keep the brand current. There is ample choice as you browse our pearl collections, made with responsibly sourced pearls and conflict free diamonds, to find that perfect pearl jewellery to pass from one generation to the next.

We feel honoured that many of our clients have chosen our jewellery to mark their special moments from engagement rings to weddings, anniversaries, christenings, birthdays, confirmations, 18th, 21st and 30th  birthday celebrations, graduations or just as a one-off gift.

A Hallmark of Authenticity

It’s all about the tag. The hallmarked tag placed on Coleman Douglas Pearls designs ensures that your investment is protected, proving the genuineness of the designs created by our studio.  The precious metal tag bearing our logo is instantly recognizable decades later, it is hallmarked in the United kingdom and is a guarantee of genuine quality and craftsmanship.  

Our Signature Pearl Clasp

Most of the designs we create at Coleman Douglas Pearls have our signature pearl clasp. This is something that is truly unique to us, and has won us multiple awards. An innovative departure for pearl jewellery design, the pearl clasp is purely natural and far simpler to put on and take off than a traditional metal clasp. Ideal for the busy & sustainably-conscious clients of today. The design proved so popular that it has become our signature!
