This is a lovely and unusual freshwater pearl from China. Measurements are shown in the listing title. This pearl has a vertical/side drill hole. I love these because they remind me of peace signs or chicken feet! These are natural, undyed pearls.
I have a friend who is a Chinese American pearl dealer and have been buying from him for years. He goes directly to the freshwater pearl farms in SE China to buy the best and most unusual pearls. I carefully hand select pearls from him and drill 2mm holes in them so that they can be strung on snake chains or leather cord. If they are white in color they have been bleached and if they are pinkish in tone they are the natural color. None of the pearls I work with have been dyed and artificial color. I don't get many of these so get them now while they're still in stock!</p>
CHAIN NOT INCLUDED. If you want to see ALL of my inventory of custom cut focal beads, cabochons, chains, and jewelry you will find all of it on my website. I have bargain auctions in my eBay store at least once a month. I have an Etsy store as well as the website, but Etsy will only showcase the most recent 4 months work, while the entire stock will always be on the website. Sign up for my mailing list from the website, where you can also see my show and lecture schedule. Feel free to like my DVHdesigns page on Facebook where you can see my complete inventory as well!
Here's some metaphysical information about pearls that I found online....
"The pearl’s magical properties are said to allow a person to open up and find the meaning and the purpose of one’s “true self.” They are believed to enlighten the mind and inspire the mood, while helping the wearer to learn to love herself more and, in turn, help her love others more, as well. "
