Adorned with an untreated oval Ruby gemstone, (the framed gem sits between two pink Pearls), the bracelet measures 20cm in total length. Please note size indicates stringing circumference, not inner circumference which is dictated by the size of the stones (hence fits 16-18cm wrist).
FRESHWATER PEARLS- is an organic gem grown within oysters. Pearls are formed naturally by an oyster when a foreign object enters the shell and causes irritation to its soft tissue. The oyster forms a secretion around the object as a form of protection. The foreign object can be a number of different things including a grain of sand or a parasite. In time the coating builds up in iridescent layers. Cultured pearls are produced by artificially introducing a foreign object into the fleshy part of oysters, which become coated with nacre in a similar manner to natural pearl. Pearls are considered to offer a power of love, money, protection and luck. Pearls thought to give wisdom though experience and to cement engagement and love relationship.
