A lustrous Australian South Sea pearl is cradled within oxidised and sterling silver shells. A Leopoldseder classic, each brooch is made individually and the process can only be controlled to an extent. This means that the ripples and undulations in the metal fall differently each time, making each brooch unique.
Mollusc Brooch with white Australian South Sea Pearl
Measurements are approximate. Please be aware that this jewellery is handmade, so there may be variations to the listed dimensions and colours.
The oxidised finish is a surface treatment that can be achieved to blacken silver. As it is a surface finish, it can wear on more exposed parts of the jewellery, revealing the silver beneath. Generally this happens gradually and adds character to the jewellery.
Avoid harsh cleaning chemicals in order to preserve the finish. I recommend using Silver Foam to clean the jewellery or return to me to restore the finish.
