Chi Galatea's Tahitian pearl earrings are hand-carved to reveal a flash of color in the bright, bold turquoise center. How is this masterpiece created? Turquoise gems are nucleated within the mollusk and are then left undisturbed for nearly two years as the Tahitian nacre forms around the turquoise. Once harvested, the pearl is hand-carved in an elaborate fashion, showcasing the beauty within. An innovative approach to the classic pearl drop earring!
