Pearls are considered gems – in fact, the oldest gem of all. The Romans and Egyptians prized pearls and used them as decorative items as far back as the 5th century B.C. Chinese records mention them earlier still.
These pearls are the colour of champagne. They gleam with a lustre that is shimmering and mesmerizing.
They are grouped into four strands of varying shapes, sizes and thicknesses: round, baroque, and two sizes of rice pearls, one of which is “netted” from small rice pearls into a satisfyingly significant rope.
Together they form a glowing sensual river of pearls flowing between two columns of larger beads, all of the same champagne hue, but with textures that contrast delicately with the pearls, and that lead up to a unique clasp made into the shape of a pearl flower.
Every detail – every gleam, every texture, every bead - works together with understated ease and glamour, to create an make an unforgettable statement about who you are.
Make a statement with this distinctive and exclusive piece of wearable art, designed and made by me.
