Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
**What does the name of your business mean?
My middle name is Rose and my son's middle name is Lee, so I combined them both into one word! Crystal is my late sister-in-law's name. She passed away in June of 2019 after a lifelong and courageous battle with Cystic Fibrosis. You will see items throughout my shop named after Crystal, Cystic Fibrosis, and Purple Roses. Because Druzys are tiny crystals, I decided to incorporate her name into the business as well and sell Druzy jewelry!
**Are your pearls real?
All of the pearls that I sell and open are genuine cultured pearls. Any pearl that you have ever seen in a jewelry store was likely a cultured pearl. Only 1 in 10,000 oysters will create an organic pearl, so they are obviously very rare and very expensive. Cultured pearls have been around for over 100 years and are still a natural process, they just need help getting started. Check out videos on YouTube! It is very interesting! One easy way to tell if a pearl is real is to gently rub it against the front of your tooth. If it feels gritty, then you have a real cultured pearl! If it feels soft, then you have a simulated pearl or bead.
