These feminine Blossoms and Pearls Pierced Earrings by Katherine Kornblau elegantly dangle cultured peacock pearls from hand-sculpted lampwork glass beads. Silver-plated earwires. Handmade in the U.S.A. Natural pearl variations will occur.
Utterly romantic these Blossoms and Pearls Pierced Earrings echo floral jewelry in the costume collection at our National Museum of American History, Behring Center, which curates more than 30,000 garments and accessories.
The 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.
