A beautiful genuine baroque shape Tahitian Pearl is the centerpiece of this simple and timeless pendant necklace. Set on a 14k rose gold filled headpin and dangling from a 14k rose gold filled chain, it makes an elegant statement whether 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.
This one has a body color that shifts from cream at the top to a deep lavender slate grey with bronze, blue and green overtones.
This necklace is one of a kind, you will receive the exact necklace shown in photos.
Pearl has been photographed 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.

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.
