“Have you ever had the desire or passion to write a book, or enjoyed something enough to do some research? If so, you should follow your passion,” Dawson stated. “It is good and satisfying to your soul to actually do it. The variety of pearls is amazing. The first sample was published in 2004. I then did talks to sell my books and had a lot of fun teaching other how to know if pearls are real. Everyone is surprised at how easy it is to do the test. This has given me so much pleasure, and I typed every word of both books. It is keeping me young and active at 84.”

Marge Dawson was born in Durban, South Africa, and has always loved the sea. Her passion for pearls originated in 1980 when she owned a franchise for “Pearls in the Oyster”. Over a period of 3 years she opened hundreds of Akoya oysters from Japan, containing the most beautiful variety pearls. The customer would choose an oyster Marge would open it, drill the pearl and set them onto rings, earrings or pendants of the customer's choice, straight away, great fun way of shopping.
