White Round Edisons
These pearls are named Edison in the West, after the inventor of the lighthouse light, because they are so shiny! In the East they are known as ‘Starburst’ pearls. They have a silver overtone and good lustre (the surface shine), but there are slight surface marks on the nacre, which are natural to these pearls.
These freshwater pearls originate from China, where the oysters are nucleated using the same method as South Sea pearls. The bright white colour is natural and the larger Edison pearls measure 8-10mms, with tiny matching white seed pearls as spacers. The necklace length is 48cms (19 inches) and has 32 larger pearls.
The ring bolt clasp is 925 silver gilt. It opens by pulling back the trigger, to reveal an opening into which you hook the silver ring, before releasing the trigger. It is very secure.
The necklace is sold with a matching pair of drop earrings with 8mm white Edison pearls, on silver-plated hook-backs, for pierced ears.
