Rosebud Pearl Necklace, Natural Freshwater Pearls, Peach, Hand Knotted Single Strand

These exquisite pearls feature the dimpled, wrinkled surface characteristic of "rosebud" pearls. They are all natural, with no dyes, color treatments, or radiation, in a gorgeous and lustrous shade of peach. Similar to much costlier Kasumi pearls, these pearls are harvested from fresh water.

The pearls in this gently graduated strand range in size from approximately 10 mm to 14 mm, and are hand-knotted on ivory silk cord. The necklace is finished with a solid sterling silver spring ring clasp.

The total length of this necklace is approximately 18 inches.

♥ ROSEBUD PEARLS

Pearls with small bumps and wrinkled surfaces are known as "strawberry" or "rosebud" pearls. The nacre surface may resemble the shape, folds, and layers of an actual rosebud, or may be finely textured, reminiscent of annealed metal or fine hammering.

Freshwater rosebud pearls occur naturally in three colors: white, peach, and "pondslime." Carefully matched and evenly shaped rosebud pearls are very rare, and therefore can be quite costly.

♥ CARING FOR PEARLS

Pearls are porous and need special care. They never should be tossed on top of or next to other gems in a jewelry box; store them in a soft jewelry pouch.

If a pearl necklace is regularly worn, some of the pearls will constantly be in close contact with skin, and may gradually absorb acid that will slowly damage the pearl. Over time, a pearl may not only lose its luster, but change in shape. You can slow this process by wiping the pearls with a soft cloth or chamois after wearing them, and keeping them away from perfume, hairspray, and acidic liquids such as vinegar or lemon juice. Dry air can also damage pearls.

Only use jewelry cleaners labeled as safe for pearls. Never use an ultrasonic cleaner, steam, detergents, toothbrushes or other abrasive materials to clean pearls. Avoid wearing pearls with rough fabrics, and have pearl necklaces restrung yearly if you wear them often.
