10 10mm Shanghai Painted Pearls are the heroes of this piece, interspersed with our signature elongated teardrop pendants. This necklace is a simple, chic way to make a beautiful statement, and can be worn with a more conservative outfit or even with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. No matter what...heads will turn!
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.
