Large, rare, 15.5mm x 13.5mm x 12.5mm natural silver lavender rose untreated color Kasumi type freshwater nucleated pearl pendant set in solid 14kt yellow gold - not plated.

**Slide type bail will accommodate a chain or cord as large as 3mm in diameter.

**This pearl most closely resembles what are known as Japanese Kasumi pearls, which are still produced in very small quantities and are exceptionally rare. There were only 2 or 3 pearl farms in Japan still producing these pearls. The natural untreated color of this pearl is identical to some of the most intensely colored of the Kasumi pearls. The photos show the pearl under strong lighting conditions. Under dark lighting conditions the color will be deeper. If I didn't know where this pearl came from, I would have said it was Japanese produced. If it had been produced in Japan it would cost about twice as much as it does. The Chinese Kasumi pearls are not fakes. They are grown in the same oysters, using the same methods as the Japanese pearls. The only difference is the location.

Pearl nomenclature is a bit fluid, but I am calling this a "Kasumi type pearl" due to its origin in China - just so there is no confusion. It is a bit like the champagne issue. Only the French producers in the Champagne region of France are allowed to call their product champagne. Everybody else must call their product something else.

**AAA grade; large size even for this type of pearl; Kasumi type rippled and dimpled skin; rare natural untreated silver lavender rose color; very high luster; multiple overtones; with iridescent metallic orient. Considered flawless.

There will be some color change under different lighting conditions with this pearl. Very lively color play from dark to light.

**Pendant is double sided. Both sides can be seen in the photos. Either side can be worn toward the front.

25.5mm or about 1" in overall length. That is a bit more than the diameter of a US quarter.

3.7g or .13oz in weight. A US penny coin weighs in at either .08 or .09oz. So maybe about the weight of 1 1/2 US penny coins.

**Use your own chain or Convo me - http://www.etsy.com/shop/LusterWear?ref=si_shop - and I can get one for you. The chain shown in the photograph is not included with the pendant. I do not make chains, but I can get one in a short time. They are available in several styles and price ranges.
