I have recently made a series of 4 or 5 different sizes of these sterling silver square earrings and these are the smallest - so, technically, they are "extra small". As I looked at them when I took this picture I saw that, honestly, they are not THAT small. Relatively small, yes. Afterall the largest ones are 6" around so those are pretty large so, compared to those large square earrings, these are "extra small".
So, I guess I should say that these earrings are the "extra smallest"....so far.

So Many Different Kinds of Pearls!
Freshwater pearls, which come from rivers and lakes in China, are the most popular of all types of pearls.

A freshwater mollusk can produce up to 50 pearls but it is common practice to have them produce 24-32 pearls - that is still an awful lot of pearls! After the mollusks have tiny pieces of shell inserted, they, are then returned to their freshwater environment where they are tended for 2-6 years.
The resulting pearls are of solid nacre. Since they do not have a "bead" nucleus, the pearls are rarely perfectly round but are still lovely to use in jewelry!
