Beautiful pearl earrings!
Classic, these simple earring studs are made with freshwater cultured pearls. All metal components are made of solid sterling silver, imported from Italy (not plated and nickel free). I carefully choose each pearls to match them by their color variation, shape, luster or size and I assemble everything myself.
This listing features earrings made with real freshwater pearls, from 8 to 9 mm diameter.
Other pearls formats are available, from 3 -4 mm to 8-9 mm.

Freshwater pearl have a nice luster and usually lots of overtone (second color). They are cultured in mussel and come in many color variation, such as white, cream, light yellow, orange or pink.
Also, some pearls are treaded by irradiation to change their color. This treatment use gamma rays to darken the nucleus of the pearl. All dark freshwater pearls, such as peacock, dark green, dark blue, dark violet, dark gray..etc. are treated by irradiation. The result is very nice and tends to imitates Tahitian pearls. Irradiated pearls have colors that look much more «natural» than dyed pearls.
Some pearls are also dye to change their colors. This treatment gives vibrant colors, but the colors may change a little bit after a couple of years because it is not stable like irradiation.
*PLEASE REFER TO THE VARIATION BOX (up right) TO KNOW WHICH COLORS ARE AVAILABLE FOR THIS LISTING. I don’t have all those colors in stock for all 6 sizes, but I buy new pearls once every month, so don’t hesitate to convo me if you need a color that is not listed. Also know that I have access to high quality salt water pearls if you need a larger size and a natural dark color.
Most of the freshwater pearls I use are near round or button shape.
