Large light peach coloured pearl on an intricate sterling silver chain
This lovely pearl is suspended from an intricate sterling silver chain. The substantial (14mm) pearl is attached by to the chain by an ornate sterling silver bail.
This is a cultured pearl meaning that it has been created by pearl farmers under controlled conditions working with pearl oysters or freshwater mussels. They are still considered to be genuine pearls despite the fact that there is human intervention in their creation. Natural pearls are much rarer and thus far more expensive. Indeed it was only after Mikimoto started to produce cultured pearls in 1888 that it became possible for those other than the very rich to aspire to own them. As a pearl-lover I am grateful that I am able to work with pearls in all of their varieties.
Pearls are one of the birthstones for June, so this would be a particularly appropriate as a present for anyone born in that month.
The overall impression of this piece is of understated elegance.
The sterling silver chain is 18" (43cms) long.
