A silhouette of wild gold leaves delicately twists around a pair of white Akoya pearls in these 18 carat rose gold and diamond earrings from our Entwined collection.

Inspired by the motif of a northern flower and the old English word for Beloved, the Entwined Collection is a contemporary collection of fine jewellery.

These pearl stud earrings feature a pair of beautiful cultured Akoya pearls, measuring approximately 7.5mm in diameter.

Chosen for their classic looks and ease of wear, the saltwater Akoya pearl has a beautiful, sharp lustre, with an elegant white colour and pink overtone.

Two round white diamonds, totalling 0.12 carats, are set just below each pearl to add a sparkle of brilliance to the earrings. Each stud earring is accompanied by a push-back butterfly ear fitting.

The Entwined Akoya Pearl and Diamond Studs in Rose Gold, which have been designed and manufactured in the UK, can also be purchased with a matching Entwined Akoya Pearl Pendant in Rose Gold.

South Sea and Tahitian pearls are typically worn between 9 and 11mm in diameter, or larger for more statement pieces.

The lustre of a pearl describes how light is reflected from a pearl's surface. The strength of a pearl's lustre is one of the most important qualities to consider.

The pearls used in our jewellery are graded in accordance with the GIA Pearl Description System. The table describes the different strengths of lustre that are possible.

Each pearl is unique and may often have small blemishes or irregularities on its surface.

The presence of these surface characteristics may add to a pearl's individual beauty but, if significant, could suggest its durability might be affected.

We grade the surface of the pearls in our jewellery with the GIA Pearl Description System. The table describes the different types of surface quality that are possible.
