Platinum, Diamond and Natural Pearl Drop Earrings by Morelle Davidson
A pair of impressive natural pearl earrings, the mounts made of platinum and 28.01 cts of pearshape diamonds, and a further 1.35 cts of rounds, the white natural pearls weigh 11.92ct and 12.14 each and have a wonderfully smooth and lustrous skin. The pendent natural pearls are both certificated by SSEF.
Part of the allure of pearls is their origin. Unlike so many other precious stones which are unearthed from the ground, a pearl is birthed from the sea. Just as the goddess Venus was meant, according to myth, to have been born upon the waves. The similarities between Venus and pearls were far from accidental. Analogies with the Goddess’ luminous and pure skin with the lustre of a pearl were overt in Ovid’s Metamorphosis (see book V).
