These are not your typical pearls! The black pearls’ gentle luster reflects shades of green, aqua, pink, and purple, creating an unusual and fascinating piece of jewelry. Laid out flat the bracelet measures about 8″. It has a clasp, but it’s also strung on a stretchy filament, so it should fit most wrist sizes.

I bought these pearls in the Bogyoke Market in Yangon, Myanmar. It’s a giant covered market filled with hundreds of individual vendors selling a confusing array of jewelry, gem stones, fans, lacquer ware, shoes, umbrellas, artwork, carved wooden animals, scarves, longyis, purses, and all kinds of other goods. There’s no AC, so you can imagine what the temperatures are like in the middle of the hot season, but it’s actually one of my favorite places to shop and bargain.
