Abalone Drop Earrings with Paua Shells
These abalone drop earrings are an elegant choice for summer. Abalone shell is known for its swirls of blue, green and gold, and each one is unique. I chose these two particular beads because I love the way they look with the gold earwires. The pear-shaped beads are 18mm long, and I have placed them with their points down for an unusual look. The earwires are gold vermeil with a satin finish.
Note: Each abalone bead is unique. Your earrings will contain beads that are very similar to, but not identical to those shown. Please contact me if you would like to request additional photos prior to shipping.
Earrings are approx. 1 1/2" (3.8cm) long from the top of the earwires to the bottom of the abalone.
Your jewellery will be packaged in a small gift box. Gift wrapping is available upon request.
What is Gold-Filled?
Gold-filled is an economical alternative to solid gold. By law, it has 1/20th by weight layer of 14 karat gold permanently bonded over a core of base metal. It is tarnish-resistant, safe for sensitive skin and unlike gold plate, it will not wear off. It is a great way to enjoy affordable gold jewellery.
