Pearls are one of the earliest gem materials used for personal adornment. Prior to the culturing process, pearls were extremely rare and considered more valuable than diamonds. Hence, old masters paintings feature royals and aristocrats draped in ropes of resplendent pearls to signify their wealth, status and power.
The surface of a pearl is composed of tiny overlapping plates, and as light diffracts at the edges, it creates their magical iridescence. Pearls are tactile, complement all skin tones and are a pleasure to wear.
This necklace features a 9.5mm round, white freshwater pearl with a smooth surface and good lustre, simply set on a 9ct white gold 18″ (45cm) chain. lt is fun and contemporary and layers easily with other necklaces.
For contemporary pearl ear jewellery, the C-shaped pearl earrings features a pearl which seemingly floats below the ear lobe.
