Sourcing

This piece is handmade locally in New York. The pendant is made with post-consumer recycled gold. The chain is made with Fairmined gold which supports the communities at the source of our materials.

This natural pearl is considered a rare "wing" shape pearl. Most natural wing pearls are smaller in size, under 15mm. This particular pearl was part of a natural pearl collection that was sourced between 1949 and 2000, with most of the pearls being harvested around 1970 in the Tennessee River Valley. Natural pearls are extremely rare (compared to cultured pearls) with the statistic for finding a natural pearl of gem quality being 1 in 10,000.

Care

Pearls benefit from being worn and absorbing the natural oils on your skin. While they benefit from moisture, they should not be submerged in water. When cleaning, gently wipe with a soft cloth before putting them away. They can also be scratched due to their soft surface and should therefore be stored separately from other jewelry.

Pearl

Material: Pearl

The pearl culturing process is cyclical –– it creates many by-products with little to no wastage! After the pearls have been harvested, the parts of the shells that are covered in lustrous nacre are used for jewelry, artwork, instruments, and accessories. Non-lustrous, and thick parts of the shell that remain are repurposed into tiny beads, to be used as nuclei and implanted into mollusks for growing more cultured pearls. Last, but not least, the mussel meat is used for fertilizer and animal food by local farmers.
