19 inch necklace of individually unique, 13-14mm, freshwater coin pearls. Reflected from the surfaces are luminous colours which can be seen from various angles. Central to the piece are 7 small, leaf shaped pendants with 4mm faceted black crystal beads in-between. All findings and the clasp are silver tone with a 1 inch extender chain and glass crystal charm.
Coin pearls are formed when a piece of shell or similar (nucleus) is inserted into the mollusc. This foreign particle acts as an irritant which in turn releases nacre around the nucleus, thus forming a coin pearl.
These asymmetrical, flat coins have a natural lustrous iridescent coating. Although not flawless the imperfections unique to each coin are evidence of their naturalness.
