Galatea Pearl Earrings with Open Tear-Drop Carving
The Galatea Pearl (U.S> Patent #7,062,940) is the world's only cultured pearl with a brilliant colored stone center, carved by hand to let the color shine through. Truly rare, the Galatea Pearl is the result of a unique culturing process that begins with a colored bead nucleus inserted into the Tahitian pearl oyster. The mollusk is gently placed back into the sea, where it will be coated with nacre (pearl) over many months. Once harvested, these pearls are carved by hand and then set into beautiful jewelry.
