Sorry, this item sold. Have LusterWear make something just for you, or try these other items:
**AAA grade pearls; large size for both shapes; even button shapes on the pale celadons and nice fat ovals on the whites; smooth skin; soft pale celadon buttons, clear bright white ovals; high bright luster; with cream overtones on both sets.
For some the color I am calling a soft pale celadon may seem closer to an ivory. Celadon is a particular type of ceramic glaze that comes out differently on different clay bodies. If you are not familiar with the possible range of colors that might be called "celadon", you might be more able to relate to the ivory reference.
Well matched in all dimensions. One of the button pearls has a small dimple on one side, which is natural and fairly common in all sorts of pearls. This is not very noticeable to begin with unless you are really looking for it. And, more to the point, it is not noticeable at all when the earrings are worn. Considered flawless. While I may be able to match the whites, I will not be able to match the celadons.
23.5mm or nearly 1" in overall length. That's just a bit less than the diameter of a US quarter coin.
2.4g or .08oz in weight. A US dime weighs .08oz.
Freshwater pearls generally range in size from about 3.0-7.0mm. Larger sizes have become more available in the past couple of years, but sizes above 8mm are still less abundant and tend to be more expensive than the smaller sizes. Factors that impact pearl prices are type of pearl, size, shape, surface quality or skin type, color, luster, and overtones/orient. Well matched pairs or strands command higher prices.
Natural untreated pearl colors range from whitish, through pink, apricot to peach. Some unusual and rare golden, purple, and blue grays are occasionally available.
Bright white pearls are bleached. Other colors, chocolate being one example, are permanently dyed. Treated pearls are not valued any less than the natural colored pearls, and are sometimes a good deal more expensive. Irradiation seems to have fallen out of fashion for a treatment to enhance the color of pearls. Freshwater pearls do not seem to be heat treated as some Tahitians may be.
**I have used a medium sized back on these instead of the smaller usual sized back that everybody uses. Nevertheless, I will send along a pair of "stabilizers" that install between the back of your earlobe and the earring back. I don't know that you would need them, but just in case......
I know that some of you prefer the large backs. If you would like to up-grade to a larger tension back, please convo me- http://www.etsy.com/shop/LusterWear -and let me know and I will get a price quote for you. http://www.etsy.com/listing/85610746/large-backs-upgrade-solid-14kt-gold-not

**All occasion wear. Kira would make a great pair of earrings for a wedding, adding just a hint of color to the mix.
Pearls are the birthstone for June in the most often used US birthstone chart. There are a few other schemes in use that recommend Pearls for other months. Pearls are closely associated with the moon in most cultures. A gift of pearls is always appropriate no matter what the occasion.
Kira will prove to be very versatile, going with everything and appropriate for every event dressing up or down with ease. Very comfortable to wear.
