Gold-Filled Biwa Pearl Long Dangle Earrings
A pair of long, textured biwa pearls are topped with tiny round pearls and drop from little satin gold vermeil circles. The simple yet elegant organic pearls hang from 14kt gold-filled French ear wires, and come with a pair of plastic earring stoppers for added protection.
A modern take on classic pearls, our Venus line features pearl jewelry in a variety of shapes and textures that you can easily wear everyday!
Faith + Grace + Serenity + Sincerity
Wear pearl for faith, honesty, purity, wisdom, charity, and personal integrity. It represents the soul’s journey towards perfection. Pearls are formed by a mollusk that has coated an irritant in nacre: concentric layers of hard, shiny, smooth material, to help protect itself. Think of pearls as a symbol of adaptability and learning to take a negative situation and transforming it into something beautiful: a combination of time, patience, wisdom, integrity, and growth. Pearl is a wonderful gift representing friendship, deep understanding, and support for those you are with for the long haul.
Pearl corresponds to the sacral, heart, and crown chakras.
If you want your jewelry to last, remember the old saying: “Jewelry should be the last thing you put on, and the first thing you remove”.
Keep it clean by keeping it away from chemicals, lotions, perfumes, excessive humidity, and protect from heavy, hard wearing activities such as sports, heavy work, or vigorous exercise. The main culprits that shorten the life of your jewelry are: never taking it off, wearing it while sleeping, wearing it in hot tubs and pools, and while playing sports. Store in an airtight container such as jewelry box or zip lock baggie while not wearing. When storing long term, make sure to clean and dry thoroughly before storing.
GEMSTONE CARE: Pearls are an organic gemstone, and should be cleaned with warm soapy water, or gentle jewelry cleaners that list that it’s safe for pearls. Store your pearls in a breathable cloth bag or jewelry box, and separate from other jewelry to avoid scratching the surface. Protect pearl’s luster from chemicals by putting your pearl jewelry on at least 30 minutes after applying lotions or perfumes, and wipe with a soft, damp cloth after each wear to remove any dirt, sweat or chemicals. Because a pearl’s surface is soft, protect from harsh chemicals and heavy wear during work or sports.
14kt gold-filled jewelry is made with thick layer of gold (5% by weight) bonded to a high quality metal core of silver, brass, or copper. Although it isn’t solid gold, it essentially functions the same as any 14kt gold jewelry: it wont rub off or turn colors easily. It can be treated and cleaned as you would 14kt gold, and lasts 10-30 years of everyday wear with care. It can be cleaned with warm, soapy water, and a soft brush, then dried with a soft cloth.
The gold vermeil we use is sterling silver coated in an almost 24kt gold overlay, and is thicker than plated gold jewelry. Care should be taken when cleaning vermeil by not rubbing excessively, to protect the longevity of the gold surface. Clean with warm soapy water, or gold cleaner, and rinse well. Pat dry with soft cloth. Prevention of tarnish is best with vermeil jewelry, so be sure to remove before bed, sports, swimming, or applying perfumes or lotions. Store in an airtight container or jewelry box.
A NOTE ABOUT NATURAL GEMSTONES:
Individuality should be celebrated! Expect your natural gemstones to be perfectly imperfect: Unevenness in color or texture or finish is normal and expect to see some internal inclusions, dots, or flecks, that may not be immediately apparent from photos. We strive to provide an accurate description of our jewelry, but variation in color is also normal, and expect to see a slight difference in color from your computer monitor from the real thing.
