A stunning genuine baroque round Fireball Pearl is the centerpiece of this simple and timeless pendant necklace, set in 14k yellow gold fill.
Over the course of my jewelry career, I have had the pleasure of working with some very lovely luxury pearls for customers and jewelry stores alike. I hand selected a small batch of these fireball pearls, because I could not leave without them. These are some of the finest fireball pearls I have seen.
The color of fireball pearls can be difficult to describe as they can show many colors and take on different tones because of their nacre luster. I have photographed this pearl in both indoor and outdoor light, at various angles and light directions to attempt to show all of the subtle tones and colors it takes on in different settings.
This one has a body color of peach pink with gold, green, blue and pink overtones. Set on 14k yellow gold filled headpin and dangling from a 14k yellow gold filled chain, it makes a simple and elegant statement.
This necklace is one of a kind, you will receive the exact necklace shown in photos.

ABOUT GOLD FILLED JEWELRY
Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of gold, which must constitute at least 5% (1/20) of the item’s total weight, mechanically bonded to sterling silver or a base metal (such as jeweler’s brass). Gold-filled items are 5 to 10 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 15 to 25 times thicker than gold electroplate, making it much more valuable and longer lasting because gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film as on plated jewelry which is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Most gold-filled is 12kt or 14kt gold-filled (I use 14kt for my pieces). Gold-filled does not de-laminate or peel like plated or “dipped” products. It is tarnish resistant and does not tarnish as readily as silver. Many find that they never have to clean gold-filled items at all. However, from time to time your jewelry may become dirty from everyday wear. To clean gold-filled it is best to use mild soap and water.
