Rikitea is an exotic port town situated on the Mangareva Lagoon, southeast of Tahiti. The lagoon is home to black-lipped oysters, which create these rich pearls.
Pearl matching is a strenuous activity! A human being takes much time to look at the pearls and match them based on size and color. So, with that in the back of your mind, it is easier to appreciate the beauty of a pearl necklace! They are a labor of love from the artisans who create them. This Rikitea Tahitian pearl strand has beautiful hues of soft pistachio, slate gray, cool midnight, and velvety heather throughout the luminous pearls.
Each pearl was hand-picked by Barb, and is stranded on silk. This stunner comes together with a sturdy magnetic clasp in the back for an easy way to take on and off without worrying about it coming undone. The pearls vary in size from 8mm to 12mm. Wear with your favorite cashmere sweater and huggie hoops or to a gala with diamond chandeliers. Either way, you will look and feel fabulous!
