Here are some testimonials from key jewellery industry insiders and jewellery designers about working with The Culture of Pearls.


It is such an honor to work with someone like Reema. She is very kind and wonderfully professional – detail oriented, passionate, dedicated, and thorough. I so appreciate her writing skills and love how she expresses herself. Every interaction with her is enjoyable. As a publicist in the hard-edged concrete jungle of NYC, I can assure you that is not always the case. But Reema makes it a pleasure to do business with her. She also brings a fresh perspective to my client’s work. Her insights and creative ideas are greatly appreciated. And she has generated some very welcomed traffic to my client’s websites!

It has been a true pleasure working with Reema Farooqui of The Culture of Pearls. Reema has an exceptional eye for jewelry and shared passion for Pearls. Reema is also a most wonderful interviewer who writes beautifully.  I remember Reema reaching out to me just after just starting my collection.  I was delighted to have an opportunity to answer and reflect on such thoughtful questions a Reema so considerately gave when interviewing me. At time where I was just beginning to develop my line, her interest in my work gave me a tremendous boost of confidence. A couple years later I consider Reema a true friend in the industry and I am most thankful for her support.
