Very large size,13mm x 10.5mm, dark chocolate, oval drop pearl, solitaire pendant set in solid 14kt yellow gold - not plated.

**AAA grade; unusually large size; smooth skinned; very high luster; baroque oval shape; good, bright, dark chocolate color; with milk chocolate and coffee overtones.

There is a naturally occurring fold on one side of the pearl which I have set toward the back of the pendant. It is not visible when worn. I have called this a baroque oval shape because the arc on one side of the pearl is not quite the same as on the other side. Almost everything that is natural - including you- is just a bit asymmetrical. That just adds to the charm of natural objects - and people.

19.5mm or or just a bit more than 3/4" in overall length. That's a little more than the diameter of a US penny.

2.6g or .10oz in weight. My brand new 2011 US penny weighs in at .08oz.

**Pearl Facts:
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 fairly scarce. A size above 12mm is considered really very large.

Larger sizes have become more available in the past couple of years, but pearls of this size are considered quite large and are much less readily available and usually quite pricey. When I can find large good quality pearls in a more comfortable price range, I grab them. I can't assume that large sizes and more comfortable price ranges will be available next market season. Like gold, the prices of pearls float on a world market. Sometimes the fluctuations are quite shocking.

Natural untreated pearl colors range from whitish, through pink, apricot to peach. Some unusual and rare golden, purple, and blue grays are occasionally available.

Most white pearls of any kind are bleached.Bright white pearls are definitely 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. A heat treatment is sometimes used to intensify the chocolate color of a Tahitian pearl. Tahitian and South Sea pearls are almost never dyed.

**Use your own chain or Convo me 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.

If you are interested in getting an idea about chain types and possible additional costs please see: http://www.etsy.com/listing/75852232/courtesy-listing-for-my-pendant Please remember that gold chain prices float with the world price of gold. The prices referenced on the courtesy listing may not be current. I will get you a current quote when you indicate your interest. I have only referenced the most popular and less expensive types of chains here. Other styles, such as Serpentine or Wheat, are also available.

I can also get a rubber or leather cord; or silk or other ribbon hanger for you, if you like. These are very trendy right now, and are very inexpensive. Sometimes I have silk or other ribbons (no clasp) that I could include for you at no extra cost. Just let me know what you need.

**Shipping and Insurance are quoted for delivery within the United States and select countries.

I do ship internationally. Please check the listed countries to see if I can ship to yours.

Also please refer to the policies section: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LusterWear/policy for additional shipping information.

**I am willing to make payment arrangements on any item over $100.00. Arrangements must be reasonable and payments made on a regular basis. I do not charge any extra fees for this service.

**All occasion wear. Unusually large size for freshwater chocolate pearls. Also very unusual to find any type of large freshwater pearl in this price range. I know it is hard to believe, but this one is actually as good as it looks.

As you can see Aruna can hold her own against some very vibrant colors, as well as neutral colors. A very versatile and earthy piece.

The perfect gift for a birthday, graduation, congratulations, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, welcome home or any other gift.
