Katerina chose the gemstones at Idar Oberstein, the European center of gem-cutting of high quality gems – with the purpose to match the different and to play with the colour.
As for the pearl, she found it in Hong Kong, during her visit at a very reputable pearl producer, who specialises on Edison pearls. Edison pearls are high quality freshwater pearls, cultivated using a newest technique borrowed by South-Sea pearls: only one pearl is cultured in each mollusk. As a result, Edison pearls are much larger sized pearls, compared to the usual freshwater pearls, rounder, with bright luster and colour. The pink-purple colour of this pearl is untreated.
Style wise, these earrings are mismatched but still classic, they can be worn from morning to evening, at any occasion, adding a classy edge on the looks.
