Elegant wedding or anniversary - very large size 19mm x 12mm Baroque Flameball Nucleated freshwater silvery white pearl drop earrings set in solid 14kt yellow gold earwires - not plated.

Nucleated pearls commonly show folds, dimples and voids which are completely natural and organic. These are not considered flaws, but are sought after for their visual interest and the color play that results. I have rated the Maribel pearls AAA for their luster, interest, multiple overtones and character. These pearls are smoother skinned than most of their kind. This type of pearl is variously called: nucleated, flameball or fireball freshwater pearl, or some combination thereof.

AAA grade; very large size; smoother nucleated type skin; baroque drop shape with a nice big "belly"; beautiful clear color; high luster; with pink, blue and silver overtones. The silver is more pronounced at the top of the pearl and gradates to other colors on the "belly".

These are large pearls.The earrings measure 41mm or about 1 5/8th of an inch in overall length. That is about the length of one US quarter and one dime put together.

3.4g or about .12 of an ounce in weight. An average US penny weighs in at .08oz, so each of these earrings would weigh about 1 1/2 pennies.

They are very evocative of saltwater pearls, but I assure you that they are freshwater. In spite of their size, there is a delicacy about them that I quite like.

I find these very comfortable and easy to wear even for extended periods of time. Please see the last picture in the series for an idea of the size when worn.

The prices on these flameball pearls continue to rise as the growers work to stabilize shapes and such. I like the wildness and unpredictably of these. And I haven't been able to find many whites that I find acceptable in terms of their color to overtone blends. I keep looking and will add some more as they become available.

All occasion wear. These would be wonderful for a wedding or an Anniversary gift. They go anywhere and, of course, would enhance any outfit. I don't see why you couldn't wear these in a professional setting, but some might want to keep them for more formal occasions.

Enjoy!
