Known in the trade as circle pearls –because of the rings around the center of the pearls, a result of the natural growth process– these graduated baroque Tahitian pearls feature the dark hues and greenish lavender orient that have made Tahitian pearls sought after since the 1980s. (There are loads of pearls on the market these days that have been treated or tinted to make them dark –Tahitian pearls are naturally dark.) Far from round, the lustre is nonetheless extremely attractive and the baroque shape have an appealing wildness. Unstrung the strand is approx. 16″ long. Once it is knotted with a suitably large clasp it will probably be close to 18″. If you prefer a choker length it shouldn’t be hard to remove two of the smaller pearls for use as earrings and knot the remainder as a choker. A great starter strand for someone who wants “Tahitian”.
