If you love pearls---you've come to the right place !
We specialize in beautiful & unusual Pearl Jewelry, & are pleased to present this vintage pair of absolutely gorgeous Kasumi Pearl & Sterling Silver Earrings ! Post style for pierced ears, the Sterling top portions are beautiful diamond shapes bordered in lovely 3 dimensional Ivy Leaves.
I hung amazingly luscious & LARGE cultured Kasumi Pearls from Lake Biwa in Japan on them, each with its own character, incredible colors & luminous metallic nacre ! ..Such a wonderful character in their crinkled nacre and mesmerizing colorful iridescence of teal green, mauve, gold, & almost burgundy purple... Each fabulous pearl is its own work of natures' art !
Both of these dazzling, highly prized Kasumi Pearls measures 16mm long, by 13mm at their widest points. Very Big and sooo desirable, their large size is wonderfully proportioned with the 1" wide sterling foliage they dangle from !
The sumptuous color of these pearls is most accurate in natural shaded daylight, which is the type of light used to take these photographs. Diffused or shaded daylight, such as under a covered porch or overcast day, always brings out the richest & truest color of pearls. Under man made lighting or direct sunlight, the colors are more muted, though still beautiful. You can also accentuate or bring out the colors more depending on what color clothing you wear. (You can turn the pearls on their wires if you are in the mood for the smoother sides to be forward, or to choose the lighter golden peach colors, or the more mauve purple colors... I added several photos showing the different appearance of their different sides.)
In Excellent Condition, this mesmerizing pair of Vintage Japanese Freshwater Pearl Earrings measure a 1.8" from the top of the Sterling tops, to the bottom of their dangling Kasumi pendants ! The Ivy Leaf tops are 1.1" wide. The backs are stamped "925". Total combined weight is a quite hefty 22.30 Grams.
Don't miss this stunning Kasumi Pearls Treasure. --They look FANTASTIC on, so treat yourself to something truly special...
