B.J. Foreman's fine pearl emporium, Boris Litwin Jewelers on Hyde Park Square, is brimming with pearls - Tahitian pearls, freshwater pearls and Japanese Akoya pearls in classic cream to what Foreman describes as "screaming key lime green." Prices: $10-$57,000.
Through Oct. 22, in celebration of the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra's pearl (30th) anniversary; the store is donating 10 percent of proceeds to the orchestra.
What's new about pearls? "Pearls worn the way flappers wore them, very long almost to the knees and wearing multiple strands - 10 or 15 at the same time or twisted," Foreman says.
And color: "We have copper, cherry and a yellow that looks like pure sunshine in every imaginable size and shape."
