This is the exact pearl you will receive, if you would like to see what other pearls are available just get in touch via the contact page. You can choose from various different lengths, however if you would prefer a different style of chain all of the pendants and chains are sold separately, so you can combine them however you like to make your own personalised necklace.
Black pearls are produced from the black lip oyster and vary in shades of grey with overtones of green, pink and yellow. Naturally occurring black pearls are incredibly rare and hard to find, so cultured pearls are a high quality and more reasonably priced alternative. The pearls you see here are cultured in seawater, not to be confused with the lesser quality freshwater pearls. This shape of this pearl is called keishi, which means they are irregularly shaped and each one is unique. Pearls are kept most lustrous when worn next to the skin, but when you are not wearing the pendant keep it in a jewellery box or pouch. Pearls can be affected by makeup, self tanning products, perfume and hairspray, so it is best to apply any products first then add your pearl afterwards.
The pearl measures 10mm by 15mm with an 6mm tall bail
