These are classic Japanese Akoya Pearl stud earrings measuring 8.5mm with 14K yellow gold mounts.
For pierced ears, we have replaced the backs with the new silicone wrapped 14K discs. I personally don't have pierced ears but the ladies all tell me these are the safest and most comfortable backs on the market today so I decided to add them (as seen in the photographs) , but just to be safe - I will also include a pair of traditional 14K butterflies in case you don't like the new versions. Out of interest, please let me know your favorites.
CONDITION: These salt water cultured pearls are in overall excellent vintage condition with minor surface blemishing. Well matched for size, shape They exhibit a bright orient and luster. Warm white with aubergine and slight green undertones, silver and rose overtones. Backs are a new addition.
Pearl earrings are a staple and these are particularly nice with a good, thick and luminous nacre. They will not disappoint.
