This freshwater cultured pearl earring features a 4mm off-round, fine quality pearl set in your choice of silver or 14K gold leverback. (Shown with the 14K yellow gold upgrade.) A staple of any woman's wardrobe, a classic pearl earring can accompany her throughout all the important occasions of her life. Unlike gems that are extracted from the earth and polished, the pearl is the only gem originating from a living organism. American Pearl is widely regarded as perhaps the most reliable and honest source of wholesale pearls anywhere in the world.
