On this page, the soft gleam of PEARLS and lush WHITE DRUZY QUARTZ - Necklaces and Earrings in a variety of shapes and designs.

The Gemological Institute of America Inc (GIA) calls PEARLS the best-loved gems of all time. The most familiar colors are white and cream (a light yellowish brown).

Black, gray, and silver are also common, but the range of pearl colors extends to every hue. The main color, or body color, is often modified by additional colors called overtones, which are typically pink or rosé. Some pearls also show an iridescent quality phenomenon known as "Orient."

MOTHER-OF-PEARL NECKLACES & EARRINGS

As its name implies, MOTHER-OF-PEARL is the inner or “mother” layer of the shell in which a pearl is formed – the genesis material that binds microcrystals to form natural and cultured pearls. The beautiful luster and iridescent play of color can range from white, to pink, lavender, golden amber and even a dark blue-green - which is seen in the Mother-of-Pearl from the Paua shells in New Zealand. Paua shell Mother-of-Pearl is also called “sea opal” because of its vivid color effects and striking iridescence.

WHITE IRIDESCENT MOTHER-OF-PEARL CARVED RECTANGLE PENDANT, NECKLACE & EARRINGS

 

The Mother-of-Pearl in this luxurious necklace has a white-to-silver sheen that also exhibits a pink and lavender iridescent luster in the sunlight. The luster is made even more vivid by the careful diagonal carving on both sides of these rectangular-shaped pearls. Each Pearl is 0.75 x 0.5 inches. The full necklace is 18 inches, plus the pendant – which measures 1.5 inches. Accenting the rectangular pearls are round shell and sterling silver beads. The delicate sterling flower bail matches the clasp. The earrings dangle approximately one inch from the sterling silver lever-backed earwires. The Earrings are accented with clear oval Czech crystals that are highly polished and beautifully faceted to catch the sunlight or candlelight! Matching earrings dangle approximately one inch from sterling silver earwires.

WHITE DRUZY QUARTZ

Druzy, drusy, druse, or drusies! The spellings may differ, but they all mean the same thing: A rock coated with tinysparkling quartz crystals that form naturally within or on the surface. Druzy cystals form when ground water carrying dissolved silica is forced into a pourous area of the rock. When rapid cooling occurs, it causes the formation of tine crystals on the surfaces or in cavities of the rock. In addition to clear quartz, some other minerals found in this druzy form are chrysocolla, malachite, hematite, psilomelane, uvarovite,pyrite, carnelian and cobalto-calcite.

WINTER WHITE DRUZY QUARTZ NECKLACE

The smaller round Druzy Crystals in this necklace are coated with a thin layer of Titantium to produce a contrasting iridescent permanent finish

that provides even more depth and interest to this stunning and sparkling necklace.

The Titanium coat is done in a vacuum chamber coating only the crystals on the top of the quartz.

All the beads are polished on the sides and back, so they lie smoothly on the skin and will not scratch clothing.

The full length of the necklace, including the romantic sterling silver clasp, is 17.25 inches.

Each of the seven freeform crystal quartz beads measures 22 to 33mm and are 10mm in depth.

The round Titanium-coated quartz beads are 10mm in diameter and approximately 7mm in depth.

Sterling silver rounds that separate each bead are 4mm.

The necklace is strung on a strong but flexible 0.019 49-strand stainless steel wire that is nylon coated.

YOUR ONLINE PRICE IS $565.
