11mm Golden Edison Pearls on 14k Gold Filled endless hoops, accented with 6mm round monkeypod wood and 14k gold filled beads. These lovely earrings are light in weight and truly versatile as the beads are removable to wear the hoops with the wood beads alone, just the pearls, or plain.
Monkeypod is a beautiful warm brown wood with subtle grain stripes. Light in weight, it is cherished by artisans throughout Polynesia for its pleasing texture and durability. A few drops of mineral oil from time to time will help retain its luster and shine.
Edison Pearls are the new hit item in the world of pearls. A break through in fresh water pearl culturing, these unusual pearls are bead nucleated and impressive in size. Two years of culturing in fresh water mussels ensures many layers of thick nacre, which is responsible for their magnificent luster and color.
Pearls are said to give the wearer a sense of calmness and centeredness, and to promote faith, loyalty, truth and purity. They can especially enhance personal integrity.
