Earrings with peridot and cultured pearl mounted in sterling silver with granulation

The finest pearl is produced from saltwater oysters of the genus Pinctada, while freshwater pearls are used for fresh water mussels. In the Varde Å in Denmark are found such a suitable river pearl mussel of the species Margaritana, margatifera.

Cultured pearls, ie. beads from breeding farms have been produced in China for centuries but the modern industry was founded in Japan in the late nineteenth century. Kokichi Mikimoto created in the 1890s cultured pearls by introducing a small pearl in oysters, which are then covered with pearl Nacre like in nature. Beads could then be reproduced and the price fell through the twentieth century. Ripe with pearls the fashion spread to several layers of society.

Regarding semi-precious stone, peridot, what is special is the color, preferably olive green, but ranging from pale golden green to brownish green. Zebirget island (St. John's Island) in the Red Sea was the source of peridot in the ancient Mediterranean civilizations, and still be mined on the island.

The Greeks and Romans called the island of Topazos / Topaziut and gave the green gem the name topaz. Peridot is a French word, possibly derived from the Arabic faridat"" meaning gem. Today, peridot is also mined in Burma, Norway and Arizona.
