New York, N.Y. Sept 15, 2020. The Cultured Pearl Association of America (CPAA) has teamed up with some of its pearl-producer friends to offer a chance to Zoom against a virtual pearl-theme background!
Now available are stunning backdrops from pearl farms in Fiji, the Philippines, and Indonesia as well as beautiful loose pearl shots by Ted Morrison for the CPAA. As most individuals continue to work remotely, these pearl-theme images can serve as a fun way to connect in the ether. Look as if you’ve left your house without the hassle of airport screenings or subway trips!
“The images are a fun way for pearl lovers to connect during this unprecedented time,” explains Jennifer Heebner, executive director. “Tour the Jewelmer farms in the Sulu and Philippine Seas, see an Atlas pearl operation up close in the Aljui Bay in Indonesia, or take a boat ride with Justin Hunter of J. Hunter Pearls Fiji, or grade pearls with one of his top staffers. CPAA is looking to add some levity to new daily routines that limit travel, so we hope the shots will put a few smiles on the faces of pearl fans.”
