We wouldn't mind finding this hidden in our Easter basket!! WOW. This stunning Soufflé Freshwater pearl was a one-of-a-kind creation from Pearls of Joy, mounted on a graduated diamond bar pendant of solid 14K Gold.
China is the largest producer of Freshwater pearls in the world and traditionally these pearls have been cultured in the ‘triangle mussel’ (Hyriopsis cumingii).
The pearls this mussel produces come in the most charming natural pastel hues - pink, peach, lavender and white.
Since these pearls are tissue-nucleated, they are solid nacre which adds to their durability. But what this all-nacre characteristic also does is to give these Freshwater pearls lovely overtones.
The white pearls often have silver or rose overtones. Alternately, the pink, peach and lavender ones boast pale gold, light green, baby blue as well as powder pink overtones. These primary and secondary colors not only make Freshwater pearls beautiful, but they also lend a softness and romance to them.
In gem-quality metallic Freshwater pearls, the pastel colors combine with the sharp, mirror-like luster to create pearls of dazzling beauty. Necklace strands of metallic Freshwater pearls, in pinks and peaches with gold overtones or lavenders with shades of greens and blues skimming on their surfaces are much coveted by pearl lovers and collectors all over the world.
This lovely pearl set would make a great gift for any occasion! The set includes a gorgeous 8.0-8.5mm Pink Freshwater pearl necklace with matching 8mm pearl stud earrings. The set is available in either AAA or Gem quality. The stud backings and clasp are both 14K gold and will be matched according to the gold color chosen.
