Product Story

Rainbow nugget pearls are randomly intermixed with
swarovski crystals and accented with a beautiful
1930s vintage swarovski crystal and sterling  silver  
box clasp called Atlas this is a rare color and
availiable in limited quantity

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 where
it cannot be expelled. In an effort to ease this irritant,
the oyster's body takes defensive action and begins
to secrete a smooth, hard crystalline substance
around the irritant in order to protect itself. This
substance is called nacre. As long as the irritant
remains within its body, the oyster will continue to
secrete layer upon layer of nacre around the irritant.
After a few years, the irritant will be totally encased
by the silky crystalline coatings. The result is the
lovely and lustrous gem called a pearl.

Cultured pearls are formed by oysters in an almost  
identical fashion, except that man surgically implants
the irritant - a small piece of polished shell - in the
oyster, rather than leaving it to chance. The process
from then on is the same as with natural pearls.

Swarovski (Austrian) Crystal is considered by
many people to be the finest quality, full-lead crystal
made today.  It contains a minimum of 32%PbO,
making the crystal optically very pure.  The crystal is
then faceted with tremendous precision, creating
beautiful prisms.  Brilliant colors and/or coatings are
added to these crystals to create pendants, stones,
and beads of dazzling 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 Swarovski crystal
beads with a diamond like brilliance.
AB - Aurora Borealis is a coating that gives the
crystal a rainbow sparkle effect, it was inspired by the
Northern Lights.
