Award winning Hummingbird AMERICAN PEARL COMPANY is proud to announce that Curt & Elizabeth Parker of Curt Parker Jewelers in St. Louis, Missouri received the AWARD OF EXCELLENCE in the DISCOVERY DIVISION of the SECOND ANNUAL VISION AWARDS 1996

In order to promote and enhance the beauty of American pearls, (yes we said AMERICAN), American Pearl Company of Nashville, Tennessee, sponsored its second Annual Vision Awards. When we say American, we mean the pearls are actually found or cultivated in the United States. The Parker's choose natural American pearls. Natural pearls are created entirely by Mother Nature and come from the Tennessee and Mississippi Rivers. American Pearl Company also cultures pearls in the Tennessee River, cultured pearls are pearls that begin from a seed planted by human hands then are completed by mother nature. Designers from around the globe participated to share their creative insights and visionary talents. An awards ceremony and reception was held in Las Vegas to honor winners and all entrants. Curt And Elizabeth Parker's award winning brooch "Joyeth Bird" is created with American natural "wing" pearls. The 18kt. yellow gold hummingbird features 26 brilliant cut diamonds in the body a blue sapphire eye and natural pearl wings and tail.

Elizabeth Parker said, "When we viewed the first crop of American pearls, John Latendresss, Father of the American Cultured Pearl, could hold the total crop in the palm of one hand. Since natural pearls are so rare and American natural pearls even more rare, it took more than ten years to collect the pearls for the design. We just love the beauty of American pearls. They're just irresistible!" Curt added, "it was only natural that we used the pearls to create a hummingbird, the state bird of Tennessee, although we did not know that at the time."
