Pearls of Wisdom: Erwin Pearl at South Coast Plaza

For those interested in the fabulous with a flair for fantasy, the Erwin Pearl pop-up store at South Coast Plaza will cater to your every whim. With everything from baubles, bling and everything between, there’s no reason for any of your ensembles to be humdrum. One visit to this boutique and you’ll need shades to see just how bright you shine.

Having over 50 years in the costume jewelry business has its perks. Not only is Erwin Pearl a world-recognized brand, they’ve got some of the strictest quality control around (which comes with the territory when you’ve got in-house manufacturing). They’re one of the world’s largest chain producers — chances are you might have a Pearl piece without even knowing it. But what really sets the Austrian brand apart is how playful it is. Even if you take jewelry seriously, seeing the whimsical and colorful pieces (like the Brazil necklace shown above) will put a smile on your face and some major style to any outfit you’re wearing.

The South Coast Plaza holiday store carries the full range of women and mens’ jewelry. They’ve got everything (including those famous chains) from cufflinks and watches to statement necklaces and earrings to more demure pieces for everyday wear. When a brand blends old world craftsmanship with modern spins on classics, you can be sure you’re making a statement every time you put on an Erwin Pearl piece.

But get there quick, the Erwin Pearl store is set to close its temporary location in February 2011, so stock up on these costume pieces and you’ll have statement-making jewelry to keep all eyes on you through the new year.

Erwin Pearl is located at 3333 Bristol St., at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa. For more information, call 714.656.4509 or visit
