Holly Zhang Pearl Gallery is celebrating 10 years at The Shops at The Bravern in Bellevue.

The store started as a pop-up but quickly grew into a standalone store. Now it is a multiroom space and also has an online store.

“Pearls have a special place in so many celebrations. Our designs and store are dedicated to celebrating life’s events, both large and small. Pearls are a unique gem because they represent purity, loyalty, trust, wealth, elegance, and wisdom,” said owner Holly Zhang. “Pearls are also the only organic gem because they are created by a living organism. It is one of the oldest and (most) eco-friendly gems. Pearl jewelry is treasured and passed down from generation to generation.”
