Edgy Pearl Earrings

Classic Pearls With An Edge

Just created these pearl earrings over the weekend. I can't believe how much luster they have. I wanted to design a pair of earrings that my customer could wear all the time (very versatile) and was not your average pair of pearl earrings. When I added the sterling silver oxidized wire and French earring hook, I knew that was it. I loved how the black finish makes the pearls really pop and shows off their luster.

For those not versed in luster, here is a quick summary taken from http://www.pearl-guide.com
"Luster is essentially the reflective quality or brilliance of the surface of the pearl nacre. The more lustrous the pearl, the more it shines and reflects light and images."
