The Jewelry News Network is an esteemed blog for those who are passionate about jewelry and watches. The editor selected Assael’s “Etoile Orange Pendant” as one of the stunning highlights of the recent Couture Jewelry Show in Las Vegas.
The Melo melo pearl has no nacre, unlike the pearl of a pearl oyster. It forms very rarely and completely naturally inside a bailer shell, a very large sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusc in the family Volutidae (the volutes). Assael is very proud of this rare and beautiful gem from Mother Nature herself. This Melo-Melo Natural Saltwater pearl measures 23.8 x 23.3 x 23.1mm and is hand-set in 18K rose gold with a diamond pave bezel enclosure.
