These elegant drop earrings feature freshwater pearls carved in an organic pattern to resemble flowers. They are part of our Galatea collection here at Joseph Jewelry, and we are proud to offer a range of innovative pieces by this designer. You can stop by our Bellevue, WA showroom any time to view these and similar designs in person, with their truly extraordinary use of light and incorporation of traditional materials in innovative ways.
The bodies of these earrings are composed of 10.5mm white freshwater pearls, and they have wave-like grooves running down their sides to produce a floral motif. The pearls themselves are slightly elongated, and this works well with the placement of the grooves to make them appear like flower buds about to open.
The elongated shape of the pearls also enhances the elegant feel of the set. The pearls are slightly wider at the top near where they join the findings, and the way the grooves create an uneven surface all the way around produces interesting interplays of light and color that add to the organic overtones of the design.
At the top of each pearl, a small cap made from 14k white gold serves to connect the pearl to the finding. On top of the cap, a loop of metal extends up for the finding to pass through, and this is in the form of a thin strip of metal that travels straight up before curling back to pass through the ear.

The minimalist design of the finding helps to keep the emphasis fully on the pearls below, and the use of white gold in this instance provides a subtle contrast with their silky white surface. The delicacy of the finding also helps to reinforce the floral overtones already present while adding some subtle classical flair to the design.
