These Akoya pearl and sapphire earrings are handmade from two well-matched AAA+ grade white Akoya pearls and 0.6 carats of AAA grade natural blue Madagascan sapphire. The gems are hand pinned in 24k gold vermeil with 18k gold vermeil daisy spacers and are presented on 24k gold heavy-plated sterling silver ear wires with sycamore leaf design.
The ear wires used in this piece have a satin finish with a 40-mil thick layer of genuine 24k gold over sterling silver - a far more substantial layer than traditional plating techniques.
