Natural Pearls

Pearls that are created by Mother Nature (and the oyster, of course) are called “Natural Pearls.” There is no (intentional) human intervention of any kind before the pearl is harvested.

Here is a five strand necklace of all natural pearls. Originated from the Persian Gulf, their cream color, beautifully matched spherical shapes, and high luster (you can see me and my camera in each pearl) makes this an exquisite example of what is possible.
