Beautiful drop earrings with shimmering black pearls
Beautiful, 7mm round, Sterling Silver capped, freshwater black pearls hang from the tiny baroque studs in these gorgeous earrings from the Dark Baroque collection. These earrings would make a lovely gift for for those born in June, as black pearls are an unusual and elegant twist on the birthstone for that month. Our Sterling Silver baroque studs have been oxidised to bring out the exquisite detail of their design, making these earrings a wonderfully refined piece of jewellery with a dark and glamorous edge.
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 pearl 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!
