DETAILS

These earrings feature silvery, wonderfully baroque, 11.5mm Tahitian keshi pearls set off by a stunning set of hand-carved mother of pearl.
    
The diamond-shaped shell pieces are made by an artisan on Tahiti and etched with an ancient Samoan tapa design. Tapa is a traditional cloth made from tree bark that's often elaborately decorated and had great social importance historically throughout the South Pacific.
    
The earrings dangle a little over 2 1/2 inches from 20/14 gold filled earwires. The set displays the vast variety of Tahitian pearl and mother of pearl hues, and the pair is unique.
  
For more information about keshi pearls see our Choosing a Tahitian Pearl page.
   
Gold filled has a 14K gold layer 5 to 10 times thicker than gold plated and is a good, affordable alternative to 14K gold. A solid layer of 14K gold is mechanically bonded with the base metal interior and makes up 1/20th the metal weight. It should not tarnish and is expected to last a lifetime.
