Amazing. These never cease to mystify me as to how they make them. I have an Anglo friend who is a jewelry artist in New York and she cannot believe these things nor the low price for the amount and quality of the work.
I suspected they had made some kind of cast for the silver portion but I can't figure out how they could have polished and signed them. In any case, the silver portion on every one I've purchased is a bit different. The little ones are even MORE confounding. I try to carry a variety of the sizes and color (stone) variations in both the earrings and the pendants.
Be careful of these, if you drop them on something really hard (tile floor) you risk cracking or potentially dislodging one of the inlays. If you can find the piece, it can be reset by a professional jeweler but I have no idea at what cost.
Mother of Pearl is iridescent and can change color somewhat under some light.
The artist makes these in four sizes, Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large... (and a variety of stone configurations)
Please note the size, they are quite magnified in the photos.
