Statement necklace with large, naturally metallic pearls, rosary linked with Argentium Silver and matching earrings
These pearls are magnificent and rare. They are considerably larger than most pearls you will see- particularly on the high-street. They are also naturally coloured metallic pearls - with an incredible lustre.
These are linked together using what is known as rosary linking with Argentium Silver. Argentium is purer than Sterling Silver and because of its composition, it is more tarnish resistant and less likely to trigger an allergic reaction than sterling.
The earrings are mounted onto substantial sterling silver ear wires.
These pearls are cultured meaning that they are 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, but primarily with cultured ones
This is the ultimate pearl necklace - a real statement piece- with a contemporary twist. It is 18"(46cms) long and is finished with a magnetic ball sterling silver clasp and the earring drop is 1.5" (4cms)
