Philippine Golden South Sea Pearls with Emerald and Mogul Diamond Bead Clasp

 

A Flower Island garland of Philippine South Sea pearls, exquisite in their size, coloring and lustre, are finished with an emerald bead clasp decorated with Mogul cut diamonds in a flowery design. I especially love the unique softness of the golden colors in the Philippine pearls because they look great on any skin tone. This opera-length strand of 12mm +- baroque beauties is so so so beautiful!

about Philippine Golden South Sea Pearls:

 

The golden South Sea pearl, exalted as the National Gem of the Philippines, is more than just a gem.  Its mere existence both in the wild and as a commercial commodity is the result of concerted efforts to develop a culture of sustainability for ocean health, the uplifting of local communities, and the economic and political structure to support development of this precious, renewable resource. In other words, this salt water pearl is an ambassador for sustainability all wrapped up in a stunningly beautiful package.

 

The largest salt water pearl oyster, Pinctada maxima, has two main varieties, the silver-lip and the gold-lip oyster, each producing the largest and most valuable of all salt water pearls. The gold-lip oyster is husbanded primarily in the Philippines and Indonesia and the colors are subtly indicative of the origins; the Philippine golds being somewhat softer in hue than the Indonesian pearls. South Sea Pearls have a thick nacre that enhances the depth of the more satiny luster created by this pearl oyster. Colors range from a champagne white to a deep gold and can reach as large as 18mm.

 

To learn more about this amazing gem, Jewelmer has a wonderful page on their website that tells the story of these miraculous pearls.
