About us

Thanks for visiting our store! We are Lily Johnson, a husband and wife team based out of Los Angeles, CA. Our specialty is fine jewelry of precious metals and gems.

Our experience comes from my folks, who's been in the jewelry industry since the late 70's opening their first retail store in Pasadena, CA in 1983 with a wonderful 30 year run until their retirement. The experience and education has been instilled from many days after school, weekends and holidays spent helping my folks at the store. From separating gems by clarity and color to creating design styles in development and making runs to our master jeweler to have rings either set or sized, to having necklaces soldered for repair.

I'm certified by GIA USA Gemological Institute, which enhanced my technique in selecting beautiful gemstones.

We now have our own family and we share with you our years of experience and service. 

Our products are made from all solid gold in 14kt, 18kt or platinum. The gemstones are genuine, unless stated in description. We provide an appraisal for all items with gemstones. 

A Sweet Pear is committed to using environmentally friendly practices. We aim for sustainability with our materials using recycled precious metals and conflict-free diamonds and gems in all of our jewelry. Each piece is crafted with the utmost care, using the finest materials. We want you to enjoy it forever.
