“Because we love pearls for what they represent, a gift of nature, no two alike, and perfect in their imperfection just like animals with no names. And us.”   Dr. Judith Samson French

Founder

As a little girl in Montréal, I was fascinated by my mother’s jewellery box. I loved handling each piece, delighting in the tactile sensation, and hearing where it came from. Her luscious creamy white pearl necklace just like the one Jackie Kennedy wore often was the most enthralling of all. 

A few decades later, I created pearls 365, a social impact company to provide women authentic jewellery with a story like no other.

Wear our pieces knowing you are making a difference for animals with no names. Their lives intertwined in ours, together making this world just a little bit better for us all. Wearing pearls and helping animals 365 days a year. No breaks.

With love,
Judith
