Humphrey earrings Alpenherz stainless steel
A very beautiful ball ear jewelery Alpenherz made of stainless steel
19x17 mm, matt polished, Akoya pearl 8 mm, white
The Humphrey Hearts from the Alps – affectionately called Alpine Hearts – were designed by Norbert Muerrle. They are cool, sexy, attractive, desirable and chic. The earrings have a matt surface on one side and a shiny surface on the opposite side.
Inside the hearts there are white Akoya cultured pearls 8 mm in size, which move with every movement. The pearls, which are perfectly round and have a very beautiful luster, make the heart very elegant and particularly interesting.
The ear hooks were also developed with our in-house designer Norbert Muerrle. These hangers can be worn with or without ear pendants. The ending is a stainless steel ball. The temples have a left and a right side. Ideally, the ball points away from the ear.
Humphrey offers a 2-year warranty on jewelry provided it is treated properly. However, the lifespan is unlimited. Most of the jewelry Humphrey ever produced is still worn.
Humphrey's Akoya pearls:
The country of origin of the Akoya pearl is Japan. Akoya pearls reach a size of 3 to 11 mm. Growth is very slow, approx. 0.15 – 0.3 mm per year. The pearls should have a layer of 0.6 mm and can therefore only be harvested after approx. 4 years.
The following criteria must be met for HUMPHREY:
Color: The Akoya pearls are generally white. In the case of gray pearls, these are treated.
Luster: The luster of the Akoya pearl is very pronounced and depends on the layer thickness of the pearl.
Shape: The shape of Akoya pearls is usually round. For Humphrey jewelry, it must be perfectly round and have a flawless surface.
Size: The bead must adapt in size to the stainless steel jewelry and therefore have a very precise diameter.
The HUMPHREY jewelry wearer has the certainty of owning a special piece of jewelry.
Dangers for the pearls:
Due to their chemical composition, pearls are sensitive to chemical and physical influences (e.g. they should be removed for showering and washing hair).
They consist predominantly of calcium carbonate and the organic horny substance conchyn.
Pearls are sensitive to high heat, dryness and humidity.
There are special cleansing baths for this that are mild. If possible, pearls should not be cleaned using ultrasound.
You can easily clean the pearls yourself from time to time. Place the pearl in a bath of lukewarm water mixed with a splash of gentle dishwashing liquid and a little alcohol and brush gently. Then rinse the pearl with clean water and dry the pearl with a soft cloth. Every two to three years you can carefully rub the pearl with lanolin.
A piece of jewelry from Humphrey is something special and brings joy for many days and a lifetime!
