Renee says: “Beautiful bronze/mocha coloured hand knotted fresh water pearls with sterling silver clasp. I purchase the best quality fresh water pearls and send them to my friend John in Sydney who knots them in the traditional Chinese method making them extra secure. These are smallish pearls, called “Pancake Pearls” due to their flatter rather than round shape. Remarkable! They are meant to be worn with a pendant in the front, see selection of examples below. It can also be worn with the clasp in the back for a more traditional look. Versatile and classy, I offer this strand as an alternative to wearing your pendants of a cuff or chain. Click on images for an up close peek at this one of a kind strand of pearls sure to delight for years to come.”

Care of Fresh Water Pearls
Pearls are remarkably durable and can maintain their exquisite lustre for many generations, however it is important to remember that pearls are an organic gem that require and will respond to special care.
Ideally, any makeup and hair products should be applied before you put your pearls on. Pearls are porous, therefore contact with moisturisers, sunscreens and deodorants should be avoided as it can, overtime, dull their lustre and cause marks and spots. Also avoid spraying any perfume where you intend to wear your pearls.
Be sure to store your pearls away from other jewellery items to avoid being scratched or marked. It is also recommended not to store your pearls in coloured boxes for long periods as they can absorb the colour.
The best way to care for your pearls is to wear them often as the body’s natural oils tend to keep them lustrous, however always avoid playing sports as perspiration can dull lustre on the pearl. Also avoid swimming, showering, or any contact with chlorinated water while wearing your pearls.
If worn often, wipe your pearls with a soft damp cloth, there is no need for commercial, ultrasonic or steam cleaning solutions, your pearls will react naturally to a chemical-free clean.
