    I wonder if a modern and affordable version could be made with a fireball pearl hanging from a silver or white gold bow?

    Especially with all the large drop pearls available today, probably a replica could be made quite easily. Now wouldn't that be a conversation piece??!!

    I would definitely be interested. I love history, so finding ways to incorporate it with my jewelry is right up my alley.

    I'd buy a replica that used a real pearl.
