These Pink and pearl heritage earrings feature pink and white pearls, crystals and traditional heritage inspired antique gold detailing. June is one of only two months that has three birthstones associated with it, giving the lucky people born in June a choice of gemstones between pearl, alexandrite and moonstone. In many cultures, pearls symbolise purity and innocence, which is why it’s tradition for a bride to wear pearls on her wedding day. Pearls have been used as adornment for centuries —at least as far back as ancient Greece, where they believed pearls were tears of the gods. Other cultures associated pearls with the moon, calling them “teardrops of the moon.” Hindu folklore explained that dewdrops fell from the moon into the sea, and Krishna picked one for his daughter on her wedding day. Tudor England was known as the Pearl Age because of the stone’s popularity with the upper class during the sixteenth century. Portraits showed royals wearing pearl jewelry and clothing adorned with pearls. They are set on 925 sterling silver and finished with a 22 carat gold plating. Size: 3cm long and 2cm wide.
