South Pearl Earrings

These dangle earrings instantly evoke images of palm tree studded tropical beaches and delicate sea breezes. The South Sea Tahitian Pearls hang from Hand Crafted strands of Yellow Gold and can compliment any outfit, whether you are lounging on a sandy beach or just dreaming of your next tropical getaway. Pearls are one of the first gems adorned by women and have been used as decorative items as far back as the 5th century BC. Over time, pearls became a status symbol personifying wisdom, power and wealth, and happen to be the only gemstones made by a living organism. South Sea pearls, produced in Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines, are renowned for their size, smoothness, and roundness. They range in size from 9-20mm (compared to the standard 2-10mm cultured pearls) and are naturally white, cream, or golden in color. The rarity and sensitivity of the type of oyster that produces these pearls makes cultivation much more difficult, making them more expensive. Measurements: Length: 2.75in Width: 1in
