Product Description

2020’s Winter Solstice brings with it a phenomenon that has not occurred for 800 years! The shortest day of the year see’s Jupiter and Saturn in their celestial embrace, resulting in a once-in-a-lifetime conjunction known as The Christmas Star. Perfect for every Jewellery Maker.

What better way to celebrate and commemorate this breath-taking experience than by launching our exclusive:


Our Pearl Stars are a phenomenon themselves! They are formed when a star shaped bead or particle is inserted in a mollusc and the pearl grows inside as the mollusc covers it in nacre to create the star shapes. That’s incredible.

Super pretty and full of a lustre our Star Pearls are not dissimilar to that of Edison pearls! Find out more below about our stunning sets of 2 or 3 Christmas Stars!

This set of Christmas Stars are very unusual and truly exceptional half-drilled Metallic Pearl Stars measuring between 11-12mm each and in a pack of 2-pieces which have been hand-curated by Marie Chalmers to give you two incredible pearls that can be used together or individually. These pearls look as if they have been dipped in iridescence as they are lustrous beyond compare!

Coming in a selection of colours from golden, pink, chocolate or multi coloured each and every star is absolutely stunning & worthy of the most decadent of modern designs! At only £12.50 per set of 2, these are truly astonishing value.

Our Metallic Star Pearls also come in Sets of 3.

About Our Pearls:

Marie’s most recent visit to a Pearl farm last year (before any restrictions) resulted in the most incredible first-hand insights into the farming of cultured pearls, which in turn has translated into our wonderful Pearl Category.

Where gemstones form as minerals underground, pearls are organic; they form within the soft tissues of a living creature; a mollusc.

The difference between natural and cultured pearls is most simply described as cultured pearls are given a helping hand by way of a mantle inclusion. 90% of today’s Pearl market is for cultured pearls.

Once the Pearls have been harvested, they go to market for sale. As buyers we all need to be aware that there is a mass flood of fake, cheap imports and need to be careful where we buy our Pearls from.

At Chalmers Gems we 100% guarantee the authenticity of our Pearls and only procure Pearls after carefully assessing the merits of all of our suppliers and select the very best strings at the very best value.

Pearls are an organic material and will vary in size and shape and may differ from the images shown.
