These satisfyingly large, 12mm round, silver capped freshwater pearls are a timeless staple, reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn and the silver screen. Whether you are looking for a present for mum, a classic piece for your wedding day or you just want to feel elegant at work, these pearls are a perfect choice.
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 and therefore the colouring may vary slightly.
These 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!
