Monday, August 23rd, 2010

White circular pearl earrings are usually quite common and lovely, but we have a different variety of freshwater pearl earrings. They consists of baroque, coin, stick, cross-shaped, keshi, and flake-pear earrings. All of these pearls are freshwater and with a little imagination these odd shaped pearls can be outstanding.

Clusters of small odd-shaped pearls made into earrings that dangle from the ear can be very artistic and beautiful. Tiny elongated rice pearls strung in a small cluster for each ear is a captivating design. Multicolored seed pearls mixed with crystals also make a fancy pair of earrings. An extravagant pair of earrings of a different variety is the keshi pearl earrings that hang from a fine golden chain with tiny black diamonds trailing down to the oddly shaped keshi pearl. When in motion these breathtaking earrings sparkle like the moon.

Heart shapes, diamond shapes, crosses, triangles, buttons, bars, navettes and teardrops are some of the fancy-shapes of our freshwater earrings. A pearl technician inserts beads with these shapes into the mussel’s mantle tissue to create these wonderful shapes of freshwater pearls. These are definitely different from your conventional pearl earrings.
