At Spey, we love to festoon the world in pearls; pearls of great beauty, luster and craftsmanship. But we also care deeply about the people and communities we serve. Pearls are pieces for touching occasions. We are humbled by those in Washington, DC and beyond who have allowed Spey to be a part of their most cherished moments. Here are some of their stories.
“The most beautiful pearls”Miss J. Conyers
“Spey gives so much back to the DC area”Ms. A. Aryal
“The perfect choice”Mr. B. Landis
“The packaging was so beautiful”Mrs. J. Plumley
“Thank you so much Spey for making my day”Mrs. A. Vaccarelli
“Really excellent service”Mr. R. Philips
My daughter reached another milestone in ballet and to celebrate I purchased her a set of akoya stud earrings from Spey. Not knowing what would be a good size for her (they come in half-millimeter increments), I called Spey for some insight. I spoke directly with the owner and from the first moment knew that this company is passionate about pearls.
We arranged a time after work when I could come and take a look at the earrings. The owner arrived with the full flight of studs and helped me select the perfect size pearl for my daughter. I had never considered the amount of thought that goes into selecting just the right size earring. We talked about her age, her physiognomy, her stature, her active lifestyle – it was incredible how much this company cared about this gift to my daughter.
The studs were wrapped beautifully for me and my daughter absolutely loves them. They’ve now become a staple of her wardrobe. But that’s not even the most amazing part. Spey gives so much back to the DC area: supporting local arts and education programs including the ballet. This is a company that truly does care about pearls, about customers, and about the community.
Ms. A. Aryal
Looking for pearls can be difficult; but with the personal touch offered by Spey the process was more than comforting. Paul, the owner of Spey, recommended a trendy yet sophisticated strand of pearls for my wife. Needless to say, it was the perfect choice…she loves them! Will be visiting Spey time and time again!
Mr. B. Landis
I had a great experience purchasing a gift for my wife from Spey. Since I’m in the local area, Paul hand-delivered the beautiful pearls and explained care and maintenance.
Mr. D. Huber
I was given some of the most beautiful pearl studs for my engagement party – Spey Pearls. A proper noun because they are worth the capitalization. I cannot wait to wear them on my wedding day — they are unbelievably radiant and I can’t imagine getting married without them! If you want amazing pearls… There is not a better purveyor of such.
Miss J. Conyers
Really excellent service. Loved that Spey helped me through a “fiancé birthday gift emergency.” I’ll be back!
Mr. R. Philips
I needed a Christmas gift for my mother who has everything. I liked the idea of pearls because they are timeless, go with everything, and last generations. I really didn’t know what I should be looking for and found Spey after a brief search online. I called and spoke directly with the owner. He taught me a lot I never knew about pearls and helped select the perfect pieces for my mother. The online checkout was seamless and the next day the pearls were in my hand. Fast and free shipping! The packaging was so beautiful I simply put a bow around it. Long story short: my mother loves her pearls, I got major brownie points, and I found a genuinely awesome small business. Two thumbs way up!
Mrs. J. Plumley
I was in search for a perfect hair piece for my wedding, I wanted it to stand out but not be too much. Needless to say Spey had the perfect piece, just the right amount of pearls mixed with flowers and a touch of sparkle. I got so many complements on the piece, that it is now my cousins something borrowed for her wedding! I wish I could upload a picture so you can see the beauty of this piece. Thank you so much Spey for making my day that much more special!
Mrs. A. Vaccarelli
Best service, hands down. I bought a strand of pearls from Spey for my wedding day. I wanted something that I could wear more than just once. The experience was great. Not one, but FOUR necklace options were hand delivered by the owner, so that we could find the best shade of white to match my dress. Loved it!
