The feature plays off the current consumer interest in all things gold, from clothing to jewelry. Along with highlighting golden pearls from retailers Fred Leighton, Cellini and Harry Winston, the article also called into the spotlight an array of golden pearl jewelry from manufacturers and designers, including Henry Dunay, Carrera y Carrera, Stefan Hafner for Bernard Grosz, Leo de Vroomen, Jeanette Fossas and Albert Asher.
