This incredibly colorful pair of Metallic Freshwater pearl drops was sourced at Angeperle during a buying trip to Hong Kong, and measures 7.5-8.0mm. The rainbow iridescence is extremely pronounced.
The owner of Angeperle told me this bucket represented the very best drops collected over the last 12 months. While they were all very nice, I spent the next 3 hours hand selecting only the finest pairs.
At one point even the staff of Angeperle gathered around to drool over the pairs and started taking photos to send to friends. A lot of work, but they're truly one of kind pieces and well worth my efforts.

Stay tuned for our next newsletter to look up close and personal at some Freshwater and Akoya pearls to compare them directly.
These 7.0-7.5mm pearls will radiate from the wearers neck, with a brilliant shine and deep luster. The outer strand is 18.5" and the inner is 17.5", allowing this necklace to fall just below the collar bone. Like all of our necklaces, this strand is knotted between each pearl for safety and strung with only the finest twin silk. We finished this necklace with a solid 14kt gold clasp.
