This extra special Edison strand features near round to round pearls. It is extremely rare to find enough pearls in this shape and color to make a complete strand, which is why we only have 1 in our collection. The color is a beautiful rose gold and copper with flashes of green overtone. The sharp metallic luster, large size, and round shape makes this a stunning strand!
Why are these called Edison pearls?
Edison pearls are a relative newcomer to the pearl market, invented by Mr. Zhan Weijian, with a pearl culturing technique usually used for saltwater pearls. The pearls are bead nucleated instead of tissue nucleated with one bead at a time. The result is high quality freshwater pearls with vibrant colors, metallic luster, and large sizes averaging between 10.0 to 16.0 mm. Yes, this type of pearl is named after Thomas Edison, because "Edison, for all his intelligence...could not invent pearls or diamonds," says Mr. Zhan.
