Now we will fast forward 40 years later, and late in the fall of 2005 I went on a quest to find a special Pearl necklace for the love of my life. I knew precisely what I was searching for, but I found that most Jewelers really don't seem to understand Pearls. From my trusty computer I researched various internet sites about the subject and came upon this place called American Pearl. Just by chance I noticed that there was a profile of the company's founder, and being interested, clicked on the picture. The biography was interesting and confirmed to me his Pearl Pedigree. It suddenly hit me that his name was Charlie. Not wanting a mundane necklace, but a specific arrangement, I called the store in Manhattan. I was delighted to find that the founder's son had assumed the reins of the business. Eddie was the expert for whom I had searched, and I immediately knew he could be trusted to produce the special piece which I desired. Not only did he produce this necklace, but he personally delivered it to my hotel in Mid-Town, before my arrival, so that the gift could be a romantic surprise. In the meantime, I mentioned the coincidence of his Dad's name, and my story. After some discussion, it seems that two generations of my family have now purchased a gift of great love from this fine and expert family. As a postscript, my love and I went to the store to meet Eddie, and pick up some matching studs. To my great surprise, and delight it seems that a great circle was completed when "Charlie" (Who is only there rarely) emerged from an office to meet us. I cannot begin to thank these fine people for their kindness, professionalism, and of course, the unanticipated continuation of a family tradition.
