Sliced Black 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.

Story: In her original jewelry line Melanie Georgacopoulos continues to explore the endless aesthetic possibilities of the pearl as the epicenter of the modern woman’s accessory. Seemingly vulnerable, feminine, yet tough and enduring, the pearl’s symbolic contradictions are juxtaposed throughout each collection with the application of innovative techniques and a surprising use of materials.

Constantly defying convention, Melanie Georgacopoulos brings the pearl to new domains of art, architecture and high fashion, whilst retaining its quality as a wearable and ageless accessory.
