Liquid Silver and Freshwater Peacock Pearl Jewelry Set
A rivulet of freshwater peacock pearls entwines and runs through ten strands of sterling silver heishi beads so delicate they flow over the skin like water. Triple-strand dangles with peacock pearl beads complete this graceful mineral and metal pairing. This Liquid Silver and Freshwater Peacock Pearl Jewelry Set is hand-strung in New Mexico by Native American artisans. Sterling silver necklace cones, hook clasp and earwires. Freshwater pearls may vary slightly. Handmade in New Mexico. Set comes with a necklace and pierced earrings. Necklace, 24"l.; Pierced Earrings, 1.5"l.
This timeless ensemble evokes silver jewelry in our costume collections.

Additional Gemstone InformationThe only gemstones made by living creatures, rare NATURAL PEARLS are produced by mollusks who layer calcium carbonate around a microscopic irritant. Most pearls used commercially today are FRESHWATER PEARLS, cultured or farmed by implanting a grafted piece of shell into freshwater pearl mussels. SHELL PEARLS, also known as simulated or replica pearls are made from mother-of-pearl. Pearl is the birthstone for June.
