This elegant, simple necklace is the foundation for our newest line of beautiful Shanghai Painted Pearls. One 10mm and one 14mm pearl are combined to create a stunning asymmetrical look that is a modern take on the classic pearl on a chain.
These are cultured south sea pearls that have a very special treatment. Artists in Shanghai have developed a technique by which they take the imperfect pearls, crush them, and create a beautiful opalescent paint with the dust. They can inject a variety of natural pigments to create the color we desire, and then once they have painted the pearls, not only do you have an unusual and stunning pearl...but the luster is even greater than it had been before it was painted! These are a very rare material, masterfully created, and we are proud to be the first jewelers in North America to carry them.
Available in 4 colors - Golden, Natural, Pink, and White
- 14 - 16inches in length

- Avoid the direct application of perfume as it can damage the pearls!
