An extraordinary find! These earrings feature two *natural* pearls. 

 

The pearls are baroque in form and feature glowing iridescence and a metallic finish. To highlight the nuances of their shape, curling prongs in 18k recycled gold wrap around the pearls, holding them like loving tendrils.

 

Today, more than 99% of all pearls sold worldwide are cultured pearls. Both natural and cultured pearls are formed when an irritant enters the mollusk causing it to respond to the irritant by coating it with iridescent nacre (the material that makes up pearl). The difference between cultured and natural pearls is that when cultivating pearls, the irritant is purposely placed inside the oyster through human intervention, whereas a natural pearl forms spontaneously in nature.

 

With so much pollution, changing water temperatures, many sea-borne predators and other factors that cause premature deaths for the mollusks, finding quality natural pearls is extraordinarily rare. To find two natural pearls that share a size, baroque nature, complementary coloration, and form is even more rare!

 

Highlighted with diamonds, these pearl earrings are delights!

 

The earrings are made in 18k Yellow Gold with a matte satin finish.
