The vendor who sold the amazing pearl cross assured me it is "100% natural." Indeed, when I drilled it I could feel no trace of an implant, the material seemed consistent throughout. He indicated the pearl had grown for 18 years to reach its large size and beauty! What makes me tend to believe him is that I found this pearl amidst a rather large tray of similarly-sized pearls, but this was the only one which had a distinct cross shape. It seems to me that had they deliberately intended to produce cross shapes the other pearls would have been more attractively shaped. As it was, most were odd balls except this one. As you look you will see it could be a whale or a bird. I liked the sense of hope in the slightly upturned cross bar, so I drilled it to represent a cross.

My inexperience with photoshop prevented me from adjusting the color of the earring photo to match the necklace. The gold in the earrings reflected off the pearls dramatically in the photo making them appear more golden than they are. In person you will see clearly that the earrings are from the same strand of branch pearls that make up the lower strand of the necklace.

This is an extremely unusual and beautiful collection of pearls, I hope you will enjoy it!
