Pearl Scorpion - Emiko Pearls International

There are other designers that are noted for occasionally turning pearls into jeweled critters, but Emiko Pearls always has a virtual Noah's ark of glorious gem encrusted pearl animals and insects.

Last February, at the AGTA GemFair in Tucson, Ron Greenidge was very generous in allowing several photographs to be taken to share with Pearl Guide as Pearls of the Week. This perfectly detailed enormous scorpion pin is the first to be featured.

Lavish is the word - there are 682 brown diamonds surrounding a silver barouque South Sea pearl set in 18K gold.
