    Advice for Tahitian Pearl

    Good morning St. Barth friends. I bought this a few years ago from a nice young man who lived at the top of the hill in Gustavia. He even brought a selection for Cheryl to Emaraude Plage a while back. Cheryl & I shopped at the bar while Mario looked on. I need some maintenance and I forget the young mans name. I believe he moved to Montreal. Is there a shop that could do some kangaroo leather maintenance? Thanks and see you on the beach. Name:  6DF828CE-E849-4DE9-997D-FD1573DCB0F3.jpg

    Not sure I would take them a pearl I bought from someone else for a repair unless you plan to buy it some companions ....

    I would say the same for Bijoux de la Mer. Kalinas et Tainos might be a good option.

    It’s Tresors des St. Barth… my husband recently bought me a beautiful Tahitian Pearl bracelet from him for our anniversary. His website is
    tresorsdesstbarth.com. He creates lovely pieces. You can find him on Instagram as well.

    Hope this helps!!

    Re: Advice for Tahitian Pearl

    Les Artisans for sure. Yes they sell Tahitian pearls..beauties. Yes,they do jewelry repairs.

    My story..two years ago the chain on my GRANDMA bracelet fell apart..I blame seawater. The piece was purchased by my kindergarten grand child at their Holiday Boutique. Not quite an heirloom, but loaded with sentimental value. Jo-Anne, the knowledgeable and kind owner, created a leather bracelet with chic decorative silver clasps that has held up to this day.

    Service above and beyond the call of duty. Stop in and check out the unique items there. I have a few myself!

    Ted Deltour, worked at St Barth Properties, the jewelry a sideline which he left the island to pursue, I think Montreal is correct. Purchased my earrings & drop for necklace at Les Artisans, perfectly matched out of their many choices/colors of pearls in boxes & boxes.

    Les Artisans it is. Yet it was Ted who moved to Montreal. He was amazing. Invited us to his house in the hills in Gustavia. We sat sipping wine while he brought out dozens of pearls. We were outside viewing the spectacular oasis that is St. Barths. Thanks to all for your input. See you on the beach.

    Easy directions - Go past Le Select, and look for Les Artisans at the beginning of the next block, on the right.

    We have found the owners at Les Artisans eager to help no matter where an item was purchased. If they are able to strike up a relationship with their smiles and can do attitude, a new potential customer will have been created.

    Greetings stopped at Les Artisians today. The women there could not have been more gracious or helpful. Suggested we go down the block to Kalinas & Tainos. Stopped in there and the women there could not have been more gracious as well. Her name was Aurelie and Clara does the fittings. Will go in tomorrow to get fitted and then pick it up when going for the stroll on Sunday morning market. Just needed the leather neck less replaced. Looking forward to meeting some of the wonderful people on this site.

    Last December we purchased a bracelet from Ted of Tresors de St Barth. Ironically we were in St Barts in May and the stone broke. I contacted Ted, he followed through. A new bracelet arrived yesterday at no charge.
