This is a classic pearl pendant with a dark side! Black pearls are an edgy and unusual twist on the classic white pearl, and make a wonderful gift for those born in June, as these lustrous gems are the birthstone for that month. These are beautifully dark, iridescent 7mm freshwater pearls on a Sterling Silver spiga chain, and look perfect worn with an evening dress or contrasted against a white silk blouse.
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.
This piece was designed in London and has 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!
