These elegant drop earrings feature carved Tahitian pearls, accented by turquoise and diamonds, suspended from a white gold finding. They match a pendant, and both of these pieces are part of our Galatea collection here at Joseph Jewelry. We have a long-standing relationship with this designer, and you can view these and similar pieces any time you visit our Bellevue, WA showroom.
Galatea pieces are recognizable thanks to their innovative use of traditional materials. They incorporate light and natural themes in an effort to continually push the limits of fine jewelry design.
Carved Tahitian Pearls and Turquoise Accents
These earrings are composed largely of 10mm Tahitian pearls that are carved in an organic style. The indentations created are in the shape of teardrops, and they’re evenly spaced around the pearls in a staggered pattern. This gives the impression of droplets of water running down the sides of the pearls, and this is only enhanced by the striking color of the turquoise within each indentation.
The use of turquoise here adds to the design in several dimensions. It introduces a dramatic contrast with the rich, dark surface of the pearls, and it helps to take further the organic themes already present.
Earring Design and Diamonds
A floral-style cap made of 14k white gold attaches directly to the top of each pearl, and this gradually tapers moving up. Just above the cap, a small round diamond is flush set, and this detail brings a hint of glamorous flair to the design. The two diamonds together total 0.04 carats, and they prove to be the perfect counterpoint to the large pearls below. Earrings
Above the diamond, the finding extends upward before transitioning into the ear wire. The portion of the finding visible on the front of the ear begins as a narrow strand but widens a bit before tapering back down again at the top.
