White Baroque Edison Pearls
Fully knotted on silk, this is a set of white, baroque, cultured, freshwater Edison pearls.
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. Baroque means ‘not round’.
They have a good lustre (the surface shine), but there are surface marks and small gaps in the nacre, which are natural to these pearls. The additional surface unevenness and bumps are also quite natural and are part of the pearls’ natural beauty.
These freshwater pearls originate from China, where the oysters are nucleated using the same method as South Sea pearls. The white is natural and this necklace is striking because of the unusual excellent lustre.
The pearls measure from 12mms to 15mms. The necklace length is 47cms (18.5 inches) and has 31 pearls.
The rocker clasp is 925 silver. It opens by squeezing the moulded flower silver bean, to reveal an opening into which you push the silver bullet. Rather like a snapdragon flower! It is very secure.
