White & Gold Splash Baroque Edison Pearl Necklace


Fully knotted on silk, this is a set of white, baroque, cultured, freshwater Edison pearls, with a natural gold splash.  

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 splash and 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 formed naturally and are part of the pearls’ natural beauty.  


These freshwater pearls originate from China, where the oysters are nucleated using the same method as in South Sea pearl production.  The white is natural and this necklace is striking because of the unusual gold splash, which appears randomly over some of the pearls.  


The pearls measure from 12mms to 15mms.  The necklace length is 44cms (17 inches) and has 30 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 10mm white Edison pearls, on silver-plated hook-backs, for pierced ears.
