With Souffle pearls you get large and exotic gems - without the weight! The white pearls measure approximately 13.0-15.0 mm and have radiant metallic overtones.
These massive pearls are grown at only two small farms in the Hunan Province of China, making them the rarest and most elusive pearls on the market. Introduced at the Tucson Gem Show in February of 2010, these large, metallic pearls were dubbed Souffle due to their colorful beauty and incredibly light weight. Souffle pearls are grown in a manner previously unknown to the trade. Each pearl is grown by inserting an earthen-like substance into the pearl mollusk. When the pearl is harvested and drilled, this substance is removed, resulting in a large, yet lightweight pearl. The nacre on souffle pearls is extremely thick, much thicker than the nacre found on most sea pearls, resulting in very durable, beautiful pearls with metallic luster.
