They create gorgeous pearl sets, pendants, necklaces, bracelets, rings, tin cup necklaces, earrings, pearls studs, and of course, classic pearl strands.
The company is still family-owned and led by three generations. Their tradition of excellence and legacy as the oldest and largest pearl company in the U.S. dates back to the early 1900’s and carries on into this new century. Throughout the years past, they have actively participated in all things related to pearl news and fashion. In fact, in 1951, they made headlines for creating a dress made entirely out of 100,000 pearls. The dress was modeled by such notable actresses of the time Rita Hayworth and Gloria Swanson. It weighed 27 pounds and was estimated to be worth $250,000 at the time!
More recently, in 2006, Imperial received a 30 year award for continuing to meet the high standards of excellence, service, and integrity of the Independent Jewelers Organization. Imperial also continues to promote pearl education in order to advance the appreciation of this fabulous gem.
