Luster of Wisdom
A peacock pearl with a blue-grey body color and deep amethyst purple overtones is suspended in these sterling silver squares, with sterling silver triangle bead detail on either side of the pearls.
Peacock Pearls: Peacock is a trade name used to describe the color of “black” pearls. According to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), “Peacock is a trade term for Tahitian cultured pearls with dark green-gray to blue-gray body color and pink to purple overtone.” Peacock Pearls can also be used to describe Chinese freshwater pearls, which are not naturally black or peacock, they are dyed to look that way.
Pearl: Cultured or freshwater pearls are considered to offer the power of love, money, protection, and luck. Pearls are thought to give wisdom through experience, to quicken the laws of karma and to cement engagements and love relationships.
From the base of the sterling silver earpiece (where the earring decoration attaches to the piece that goes in your ear), the earrings hang about 1” long. The sterling silver earring squares measure 1”x1”x1”x1”. The peacock pearls are the size of small blueberries.
