Freshwater Cultured Half-Drilled Button Pearls, Raven's Wing, A-Grade


Description

This freshwater cultured Raven's Wing button pearl is half-drilled, making it ideal for setting onto pearl pegs for pendants, drops or earrings. Highlight the iridescent color by setting it in silver or add contrast to custom designs by combining it with multi-color stones and yellow-gold findings. Use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the pearl on a pearl peg.

Freshwater cultured pearls are cultivated in fresh water from mussels, often the triangle shell mussel (Hyriopsis cumingii), that are specially selected for their prolific production of nacre. It is not unusual for a single mussel to produce multiple pearls simultaneously. According to one legend, the pearl was formed from the tears of the goddess of love. For many, pearls are a symbol of pure heart and mind, honesty and integrity.
