Delicate forged teardrop shaped hoops are adorned with tiny white pearls wrapped in gold wire. I love the contrast of metals and the elegant form of these earrings. Measure 1 7/8". Handmade shepherd hook earwires. 14k gold fill and sterling silver, which has been oxidized and hand polished for an antique finish.

About pearls: Throughout history, the pearl, with its warm inner glow and shimmering iridescence, has been one of the most highly prized and sought after gems. In ancient Rome, pearls were considered the ultimate symbol of wealth and social standing. The Greeks held the pearl in high esteem for both its unrivaled beauty and its association with love and marriage. Pearls are the birthstone for June.

What is a cultured pearl? An oyster or mollusk is artificially "seeded" with a tiny grain of sand or other object. The mollusk then excretes a coating to protect itself from the irritant. Several layers are accreted, creating a real pearl.
