On this page, the soft gleam of PEARLS - 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."



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.



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.
