Sliced South Sea Pearl Necklace by Melanie Georgacopoulos
Specs: Layers of nacre are visible in the sliced portion of these peacock-hue black sliced South Sea pearls. A large white pearl centers the necklace. Each pearl shows rings around the piece of sand that implanted the mollusk to form each of these miraculous natural pearls with visible centers on one side and the lustre of the outer pearl on the reverse side. This historic necklace has been lauded by numerous publications including Vogue and The Wall Street Journal as spectacularly innovative and beautiful contemporary jewelry design.
