Tahitian cultured pearl earrings on gold filled (very solid American kind of plating*).
I really like to mix the Tahitian peacock pearls with blue-green reflections with the golden color. The mixture of these tones reminds me of antique, Byzantine, Egyptian or Roman style jewelry.
Shape: semi-baroque circled
Diameter: 8.50 mm
Color: bluish peacock gray
Luster: very good
Orient: very good
The ear hooks are golf filled, I add two plastic stoppers so you won't lose the earrings.
The 14k gold filled shell-shaped component is hollow on one of its side. The star is in 14k gold filled too and looks the same on both sides.
Height of the earrings: approximately 6 cm
The earrings are lightweight and will dangle with sparkle for your evenings or for everyday.
The jewel you see in the photos is the one that will be sent to you.

* By combining pressure and heat, the gold-filled manufacturing technique consists of covering a metal base (very often brass) with a solid layer of 14 karat gold. Thus, Gold-filled generally contains 50 to 100 times more gold than a “gold-plated” jewel.
It is therefore more durable than most other gilding (gold plated ...), no allergic reaction possible, can withstand water under "normal" conditions of use, easy to clean.

They are cleaned with a soft cloth, they can be rubbed with olive oil.
If you store them for a long time, place a small container of water at their side, so that they are always hydrated.

Yes, you can wear your necklace in the shower, in the sea ... avoid if possible in very very chlorinated pools! Whatever water you go into (sea, shower or swimming pool), there is no problem but remember to rinse the pearl (s) and the leather under fresh water afterwards, wipe it / them with a soft cloth then and regularly oil the leather.
-The temperature: the fancy pearl takes the ambient temperature while the true cultured pearl of Tahiti, Australia ... will always be a little cooler. Put it under your nose and realize!

The classification concerning the surface quality of cultured pearls of Tahiti is:
Category A: Pearl with at most one imperfection or group of light imperfections concentrated on not more than 10% of its surface. Very beautiful luster.
Category B: Pearl with some slight imperfections concentrated on at most 30% of its surface. Chandelier beautiful or medium.
Category C: Pearl with slight imperfections concentrated on not more than 60% of its surface. Medium chandelier.
Category D: Pearls with either slight imperfections on more than 60% of the surface, without deep imperfections, or light and deep imperfections concentrated on not more than 60% of its surface. Luster weak.
The luster of a pearl is the measure of the quantity and quality of light that is reflected by the surface of a pearl or just under the surface of a pearl. The more your reflection in the pearl is sharp, the higher the luster.
The luster of a pearl of good quality is clear and bright. A pearl that appears too white, dull or limestone, is of low quality.
The orient of a pearl is the way in which the prism of natural light breaks down in the depths of a pearl's aragonite layers. This iridescence gives the pearl all the brilliance that will be sublimated by reflections of colors that go from white to black in shades of cream, pink, blue, peacock green, purple and gold.
