What are Blister Pearls?
These are fresh water Blister Pearls from the South Pacific.
We were told that these are from Pearl Farms. When the irritants are being put into the oyster sometimes by accident more than one gets in there. Since it irritates the oyster, when it secretes the nacre it tries to cover all of them. That is why some of these formations show more than one pearl starting. While forming it also sticks to the oyster shell's wall instead of just attaching to the oyster, therefore it has to be cut out of the shell and one side is flat. Each and every one is nature's art, a true one of a kind piece.
The wires, which hold the pearl don't tarnish. They are made out of a non ferrous metal.
