Exquisite Sterling Silver drop earrings with shining pearls
Part of Joy Everley's Dark Baroque collection, beautiful, round, silver-capped freshwater pearls hang from our tiny baroque studs. These ornate drop earrings have been cast from solid Sterling Silver and oxidised to accentuate the raised decoration. They look particularly beautiful when worn with an up-do or on ladies with cropped hair.
These Pearls are the real thing, grown in the shells of mussels or oysters. Joy Everley's pearls are all cultured i.e. farmed, but the term 'cultured pearls' usually refers to those grown in oysters. The pearls cultivated in mussels and farmed in rivers and lakes are labelled 'freshwater pearls', and tend to be a little irregular in shape, which only adds to their charm. What all the pearls we use have in common is their beautiful lustre, which enhances every skin tone. Please note that as these are real, freshwater pearls the colouring may vary slightly.
These drop earrings were designed in London and have been handcrafted using traditional lost wax casting, before being hallmarked by the London Assay Office. Please read our Jewellery Care guide to make sure your piece of handcrafted jewellery lasts for many years!
