Coco Gone Loco Necklace
This elegant resin necklace pays homage to the designer Coco Chanel, who was instrumental in popularising pearls in jewellery as well as plastic costume jewellery in the early 20th Century.
This unique, one-of-a-kind necklace is studded with dark, peacock pearls to give the piece a subtle, edgy feel. It’s monochromatic palette makes the Coco Gone Loco Necklace a real crowd pleaser – it goes with everything, and can be paired easily with other silver and gold or pearl jewellery. It really is the perfect, versatile necklace for those who like their jewellery classic with a design twist.
As gemstones, pearls are fairly unique in that they are ‘jewellery-ready’ in their natural state. They do not have to be cut, shaped and polished unlike other mineral stones. The creation of a pearl in itself is something of a phenomenon as natural pearls start as a foreign object that lodges itself into the inner body of an oyster. A cultured pearl is formed in very much the same way as a natural one, but human intervention allows for a more controlled process with a much higher yield. Cultured pearls are often formed from a round bead to guarantee uniformity in production and are normally left for between eight months to three years before harvested.
