Gold Baroque Edisons
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 gold overtone and good lustre (the surface shine), but there are surface marks and small gaps in 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 gold shades are natural and belong in the pink colour category; rose pink is one of the rarest colours of pearl. Only freshwater creatures can produce the pink range of colours naturally.
This necklace is a striking colour being a true gold surface shade and the pearls measure from 12mms to 18mms. The necklace length is 44cms (17 inches) and has 24 pearls.
The ring bolt clasp is 925 silver. 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 15mm Edison pearls, on silver-plated hook-backs, for pierced ears.
