- AAA grade Akoya pearls
- 1.5 carats top grade natural larimar
- 24k gold vermeil
These larimar and Akoya pearl earrings are handmade from two well-matched AAA grade white Akoya pearls and 1.5 carats of genuine rare natural larimar from the Dominican Republic. The pearls measure 6.5mm and have excellent surface quality with good orient and superior lustre. The gems have been hand pinned in 24k gold vermeil with 18k gold vermeil accent beads and are presented on 24k gold heavy-plated sterling silver ear wires.
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.
