'Kasumi style' ripple pearl earrings - White - Sterling silver wire.
These are drop dead gorgeous pearls ! White pearls approx. 10mm diameter with a rippled surface. Sterling silver flower bead cap above the pearl. Sterling silver leverbacks. These pearls are not all perfectly round or smooth and there may be very slight variances in size & shape between different pairs. They have a very organic look which I love !
The original Kasumi pearls were harvested from lake Kasumi in Japan where production ended in the 1980s due to pollution. The 'Kasumi style' pearls today are fresh water pearls produced in China.
