Two beautiful genuine baroque shape Tahitian pearls are the centerpiece of this simple and timeless pair of drop earrings. Set on torch fired sterling silver headpins and dangling from solid sterling silver ear wires, they make an elegant statement worn casual or dressed up.
The color of Tahitian pearls can be difficult to describe as they often show many colors and take on different tones because of their nacre luster.
These have a body color of very deep grey/slate blue/brown with silver and blue overtones. In low light these pearls can appear almost black, and in direct light there are some very subtle blue/green overtones.
These earrings are one of a kind, you will receive the exact pair of earrings shown in photos.
Pearls have been photographed in both indoor and outdoor light, at various angles and light directions to attempt to show all of the tones and colors they take on in different settings.
