Carved Tahitian Pearl Turquoise Necklace

SKU: 320-00252

The creation of this carved Tahitian pearl turquoise necklace is a truly amazing process. The cultured pearls are created by putting a small colored stone in an oyster, in this case turquoise, and slowly placing it back into the sea. The oyster will try to rid itself of the intruder colored stone by coating it with "nacre (pearl)".

Pearl divers then gather these unique oysters and their treasured pearls. Designers will then take the pearls with the layers of pearl and slowly hand carve them to reveal the beautiful colored stone below. They will then bezel set a diamond into the pearl to create a truly unique look.

It is during the healing process that the oysters create these beautiful pearls. The oysters use their discomfort to create something extremely beautiful. This is a wonderful gift for someone who is experiencing discomfort or growing pains in their life to remind them that this short time will lead to a beautiful ending. Pearls are also the birthstone for June and fantastic anniversary gifts.

The act of carving a pearl is a relatively new tradition. The idea behind this new custom is taking something that is classically beautiful and enhancing that beauty. The act of carving the pearl allows the designer to reveal an internal beauty that would not normally reach the surface.
