Vintage Japan 'Pearls' for June!
The birthstone for June is the pearl!

This gorgeous pair of white and pale pink faux pearl earrings are signed Japan, £12.50.
The faux pearls have a beautiful glow. These are quality hand wired earrings made in Japan circa 1950s.

After the second world war, large quantities of low cost jewellery were made in Japan, as labour was cheap.  This jewellery was however very well made, and the pearls were used by high end designers such as Miriam Haskell.
