Tahitian Cultured Pearl and 9ct Rose Gold Pendant.
I love pearls, especially circled Tahitian Cultured Pearls. Circling happens when a pearl starts to turn within the mollusc producing it creating these very distinct grooves around the pearl.
This pearl was produced within the Pinctada Margaritifera in French Polynesia. The pearl has a graduation in colour from light silver grey at the top to dark grey with a greenish overtone at the bottom. The lustre is good and bright, within the normal range. The pearl itself measures approximately 12.5mm x 8mm.
The pearl is mounted in 9ct Rose gold and measures approximately 19mm high, including the top and approximately 8mm wide.
Thank you for looking and please have a look around my shop.
