Mabé Pearl Mabé, also known as blister pearls, are half-pearls that have grown attached to the shell of the mollusk instead of inside the body, allowing them to develop a rounded shape on one side, with a flat bottom. They can be grown in Akoya, South Sea, Tahitian and Freshwater mollusks. Their ready-made flat surface makes them a popular choice for earrings, rings and pendants.

Full Cut Full cut diamonds: A round brilliant cut diamond can also be called a full cut diamond if it features the cutting standard of 57 or 58 facets.

Jean Schlumberger Jean Michel Schlumberger (1907-1987) was one of the leading jewellery designers of the 20th century. He began his career in jewelry as a designer of buttons and costume jewelry for fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli in France. After WW2, he moved to New York, where he was hired by Tiffany and Co. in 1956 to head his own jewelry department and workshop that created pieces for Greta Garbo, Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark, Wallis Simpson, Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn among many other luminaries. Schlumberger created the famous necklace with the Tiffany Yellow Diamond and described his own approach to design " ‘I try to make everything look as if it were growing, uneven, at random, organic, in motion.’

Tiffany and Co. Founded in 1837 by Charles Lewis Tiffany, the house has become one of the most famous jewelers in the world, with its iconic blue box. In 1878 the company acquired the 287.42 diamond now known as the Tiffany Diamond from South Africa. This stone was worn by Audrey Hepburn in a necklace in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1961. Tiffany & Co named Kunzite in 1902, Morganite in 1910, Tanzanite in the 1960s and Tsavorite in 1974. The house has collaborated with designers including Jean Schlumberger and Donald Claflin ( since 1955), Paloma Picasso ( since 1980) and Elsa Perreti( since 1974) and has been worn by royalty throughout the world.

Unique Elements
These Mabé pearl and diamond earrings have been a classic since they were first introduced at Tiffany and Co, featuring gold rope curving elegantly around the pearl, adding texture to the luster of the pearls. They complement any day to evening look when you want to make sure you shine.
