Funky Oysters Launches Site Showcasing the Versatile Freshwater Pearl

In time for Mother's Day, Proms, and Graduation, Funky Oysters offers freshwater
pearls in traditional & modern designs at affordable prices

April 10, 2007, San Francisco, CA - Funky Oysters today announces the grand opening
of their online store, The site features jewelry highlighting the
colorful, versatile re-discovered freshwater pearl. The current collection is priced
from $15-$80, a great value for jewelry featuring real pearls.

The freshwater pearl is currently going through a re-discovery phase. With
improve-ments in quality, jewelers now have plentiful choices to craft unique pieces
utilizing the pearls' color, shape, and type. Mindful that customers may initially
think of freshwater pearls as crinkly-shaped, Funky Oysters has collected pieces
that show off the pearls' iridescent colors and unusual shapes in classic, modern,
and ultra-hip designs.

The Funky Oysters collection aims to make pearls fashionable again. The Classic
collection showcases traditional styles with a hint of modernity, like using extra
large oval pearls, or combining the luminous colors of lavender, peach, and beige in
one strand. The Hipster collection uses popular designs with the flat, coin, drop,
button, or square shapes. These designs can be combined with other jewelry for a
truly unique look. The Designer collection shows off creative styles that otherwise
would be too expensive for the average consumer.

A Funky Oyster special is the "lariat", a creative take-off on the traditional
necklace. Ranging from 40 - 60 inches, these strings of small pearls can be wrapped
around the neck in multiple ways, creating a different look every time. Lariats come
in many styles, varied by the type of pearl used, the colors combined, and the extra
little accessories added to the long strand. This is the "it" accessory of the

"Pearls really add a touch of sophistication to anything you wear," said Mellisa
Andrade, Director of Marketing. "We all accessorize to get that certain look, and at
Funky Oysters, you can find a variety of styles at prices that won't break the bank.
We think pearls should be affordable for everyone; they're a great buy because these
are the real thing."

All jewelry is now available at Lariats are priced at $25,
necklaces from $20-$80, bracelets $15-$25, and earrings $20-$25. New designs arrive
frequently so inventory stays fresh.
