Kashi pearls sprinkled with bicone faceted clear
aurora boralis swarovski crystals and .925 sterling
silver. Make this a classic statement.

Throughout history, the pearl, with its warm inner
glow and shimmering iridescence, has been one of
the most highly prized and sought after gems. In
ancient Rome, pearls were considered the ultimate
symbol of wealth and social standing. The Greeks
held the pearl in high esteem for both its unrivaled
beauty and its association with love and marriage.

A natural pearl begins life as a foreign object, such
as a parasite or piece of sand, that accidentally
becomes lodged in the oyster's soft inner body

beauty and tremendous variety of shapes and
sizes.  Swarovski Crystal is unmatched in quality
and distinction .Swarovski beads are made in a
factory in Wattens, Austria. Swarovski crystal beads
are created using a formula perfected by Daniel
Swarovski and his three sons at the turn of the 20th
century. All Swarovski crystal beads are fired using
a combination of quartz sand and natural minerals,
then cooled slowly to avoid causing stress to the
crystals. The high percentage of lead in all
Swarovski crystal beads (32% compared to
competitors 24%) as well as the secret
manufacturing process produces high quality
