Moline Pearls is the first luxury pearl vendor to offer an upgrade program for fine pearls. With some of the best access to gem quality pearls available in the market, you can rest assured that purchasing a pair of what Moline Pearls became known for -- the finest in Akoya Studs -- allows you to save value and upgrade to a larger size in the future. 

The Moline Pearl upgrade policy is straightforward and easy to understand: 

Gem Quality Akoya Studs: Purchase a pair of Moline Pearls Akoya studs, decide to upgrade to a larger size at any point in the future, and receive the price of what you paid for the studs, minus settings and shipping, towards a larger pair. More details & some specific terms below:

        ––– Unfortunately, because earring settings cannot be reused for hygiene reasons, credit for posts/backs cannot be given.

        ––– At this time, pearls must be upgraded to at least one size bracket larger, and cannot be upgraded for a different pair of the same size. For example, a 7-7.5mm pair of studs can be upgraded to a 7.5-8mm pair or larger. 

        ––– Pearl studs must be upgraded in a 1:1 ratio - for example, one pair of turned in studs/pearls towards one pair of another. If you wish to turn in more than one piece towards a single larger piece, for example, this can be considered on a case-by-case basis; please contact with your situation. 

        ––– At this time, only akoya pearls are eligible for the full upgrade program. Other types of pearls may be considered in the future or on a case by case basis, so please contact for details. 

        ––– Pearls that have been purchased loose for non-stud settings/used by other vendors may be eligible on a case by case basis, so please contact for more details.
