9CT GOLD HUGGIE PEARL DROP EARRING
This is a beautiful pair of white freshwater Pearl drop earrings. The round-shaped pearls have a high lustre and are set in Hallmarked 9ct Yellow Gold open drop design.
A Pearl is one of just a handful of organic gems (the other well-known ones being Coral, Amber and Jet). If a foreign object, such as a grain of sand, enters a mollusc it becomes an irritant to the creature inside, so in order to protect itself, it releases a silky substance, known as nacre, to cover the uninvited guest. It may be a very beautiful thought to think natural Pearls form in the sea and are discovered when divers find them at the bottom of the ocean, but at what expense are we retrieving this treasure? Cultured Pearls, on the other hand, refer to Pearls that are grown in environmentally- friendly Pearl farms. Many people today prefer to know that their Pearls are cultured so as to avoid the possibility that they may have been taken from the likes of a protected Coral Reef: the good news is that around 99% of today’s Pearls are indeed cultured.
Please note that there might be slight variation in colour and shape as these are still natural products and no two pearls are same. Also due to different screen resolutions and digital imaging, the shade may appear either darker or lighter than the actual product colour.
The earrings will be posted via Royal Mail 1st Class Signed For service and will come in a fully recycled gift box.
