Large & Luminous “Fireball” Baroque Pearl Earrings

Large and luminous white, 15x21 mm, baroque "fireball" pearl earrings crafted with a leaf motif in 18-karat white gold; we make our swan-neck wire that goes through the ear shorter than most, so the earrings hang correctly and don't pull the earlobe. 

The luminosity of these baroque pearls makes for stunning earrings that give your face a glow.

Fireball is a term used in the trade and refers to one end of the pearl having a rounded shape with an irregular "tail" flowing behind it, like a meteor or comet - hence "fireball."

Since each pearl is irregularly shaped, it is very hard to match them for pairs, and even then each pearl will echo the shape of the other, not be an exact cookie-cutter match. Charming, yes?

The irregular shape is a real boon for us because when the light hits the pearl's wavy surface, it diffracts into a rainbow of spectral (remember ROY G. BIV from science class?) colors. This diffraction of light creates the pearl's iridescence.
