About HinsonGayle Fine Pearl Jewelry
HinsonGayle LLC is a pearl jewelry company that specializes in creating traditional and unique jewelry designs from select pearls sourced onsite in Asia. HinsonGayle's collection of fine pearl jewelry is available from the company's exclusive online boutique at HGpearls.com. The company was founded by Gregory Guest (see bio) and is based in Anderson, South Carolina.
Gregory's academic and professional experience has made him known to many as a China expert. As most people know, China is now the world's leading cultivator of pearls. Gregory's interest in pearl jewelry started some years ago during one of his many flights to Shanghai. He noticed a flight attendant who was wearing a strikingly unique pearl necklace and he was intrigued by the fact that she was attracting attention and compliments from many passengers. He was curious about how he could introduce women back home to pearls as alluring as the ones she was wearing.
Of course, as a man Gregory could not be a walking salesperson for pearl jewelry. He also didn't know anything about pearls! But Gregory did speak excellent Chinese and had the unique ability to connect with Chinese people. He had what it would take to learn everything about pearls directly from the people who supply jewelers around the world.
Gregory had helped his grandmother buy a pearl necklace when she visited him in Beijing and over time he began helping his clients and friends buy pearl jewelry when they were in China. As he learned more about pearls, Gregory was convinced that he could start a pearl jewelry business in America and he mentioned the idea to his colleague Jayne. She asked Gregory to buy some pearls on his next trip so that she could see some examples. She loved the pearls he brought home to her and so did her friends and family members!
His dream had always been to own his own business, and pearl jewelry seemed to be the perfect fit for Gregory's Chinese language skills and entrepreneurial spirit. The next step was to select a name for his company. He had, unfortunately, lost his mother to breast cancer eight years earlier. Knowing how much Gregory loved and missed his mom, Jayne suggested that he name the company after his mother. And that is exactly what he did. HinsonGayle is his mother's name and maiden name in reverse. Gregory knows that his mother would be crazy about the pearl jewelry and he is proud to have named the company in honor of her memory.
Over the past six years, Gregory has continued to educate himself about pearls. He has formed excellent relationships with Chinese pearl traders and has learned a lot about the different types of pearls and how they can be used to create stunning pieces of jewelry. In his pursuit to create unique pearl jewelry that is different from what is offered at most jewelry stores, he is constantly soliciting feedback from female friends and customers.
One of Gregory's greatest strengths in the pearl jewelry business is his ability to speak fluent Chinese. This has allowed him to quickly learn the pearl industry and speak intelligently to Chinese pearl traders about their products. The relationships Gregory has built with pearl traders, his attention to detail, and his endless pursuit to source high quality pearls where they are cultivated are the key elements that elevate HinsonGayle's reputation among pearl connoisseurs.
HinsonGayle appreciates the timeless quality of classic pearl jewelry and also strives to bring pearls to the forefront of modern jewelry design. HinsonGayle Fine Pearl Jewelry is exclusively marketed on the company's web store at HGpearls.com. The HinsonGayle brand is also available to premium local jewelers and retail stores that want to create a market niche for premium pearl jewelry in their community.
