8-9mm Tahitian 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.
World wide, only Tahitian Pearls naturally form in exotic dark colors. These highly lustrous organic gems are cultured in the serene water of remote atolls in French Polynesia. Colors range from silver gray to deep black, some with intense overtones of pistachio, aubergine, and peacock.
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.
