A beautiful genuine baroque shape Tahitian Pearl is the centerpiece of this simple and timeless pendant necklace. Set on a torch fired sterling silver headpin and dangling from a sterling silver 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 of very deep grey/slate blue/brown with silver and bronze overtones. In low light this pearl can appear almost black, and in direct light there are even some very subtle pink/lavender/blue/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.
-Genuine untreated south sea saltwater Tahitian pearl, baroque in shape and deep grey/blue/bronze in color with silver and bronze overtones. Surface shows nice luster, ringed texture with some surface divots as typical with genuine pearls.
-Pearl was hand selected by me from a highly trusted collector and distributor of fine pearls, based in Tennessee and Florida, with over 4 decades of continual successful business in the pearl industry.
-Pearl measures 15mm (just under 5/8″) length (not including headpin, total pendant length with headpin is 22mm or 7/8″) 13.5mm (just over 1/2″) width at it’s widest point.
-Set on a torch fired solid sterling silver headpin, the bottom of which is left darkened from torch firing to add contrast and visual interest.
-Chain is a solid sterling silver 1.1mm width 20″ length cable chain with hammered hook and loop clasp. It looks delicate but is very strong. If you would like an alternate chain length or clasp, please message me for available options.
