Seed pearls are natural pearls that weigh less than a quarter of a grain. The name seed pearls was acquired for no other reason than their remarkable size — less than 2 mm in diameter. During the reign of Queen Victoria pendants and brooches fashioned from seed pearls were immensely popular. Seed pearl jewelry was often associated with purity and so it was the natural choice of gift for young brides.
This delicate floral inspired beauty is comprised of thirty tiny well matched seed pearls set in the inner perimeter, twenty three graduated seed pearls in the petals, twelve small pearls in the halo, and one perfect beauty in the center of the flower. We love the 14 karat gold setting, with a reverse almost as beautiful as the front! Thanks to Madame Vice President of the USA, pearls are making a comeback, and wouldn't this pendant look amazing dripping from a strand of your grandmother's pearls? A charming piece, the epitome of Victorian sensibility, sure to become the signature look of her future owner!
