    Edison pearls are something of a rarity. First seen at the 2014 Hong Kong jewellery show, they are a new type of nucleated pearl and probably the first time bead nucleation has been successful in a freshwater mollusc. So what makes them special? Firstly, they are hard to cultivate, output per shell is one pearl, apparently. It's a big risk and the supply is very small. The nucleation enables pearls of up to 16mm to be grown. The end result is a pearl that is almost indistinguishable from a...
    Edison pearls are something of a rarity. First seen at the 2014 Hong Kong jewellery show, they are a new type of nucleated pearl and probably the first time bead nucleation has been successful in a freshwater mollusc. So what makes them special? Firstly, they are hard to cultivate, output per shell is one pearl, apparently. It's a big risk and the supply is very small. The nucleation enables pearls of up to 16mm to be grown. The end result is a pearl that is almost indistinguishable from a South Sea pearl (I've compared the two and it would fool most retailers). The rich lustre is exactly the same, the natural colour range overlaps, including Tahitian black. What you effectively get is something that looks exactly like a £10,000 South Sea necklace for a fractiom of the South Sea price.
    Long story short, last time we were in HK I was fortunate to get hold of some super large Edisons, just off round, beautiful skin and lustre. My curiosity and enthusiasm for a bargain did the rest. I'll leave you to do your own research on the look and price of similar sized South Sea and Tahitian pearl necklaces. We won't tell if you don't. With one of our nicest gilded silver clasps. 46cm.
