Cement Pearls

22

From the website:

...............................

These cement earrings are modeled on classical pearl studs.

Each sphere is cast by hand and set onto a sterling silver post.

With wear, the color of the earrings will deepen as they are exposed to the air and the oils from your skin.

I could hide behind the fact that I simply quoted the website's conflation of cement with concrete โ€” but I won't.

I agree with you that the earrings are cement, as stated in large type on the box they come in (pictured in the post).

I also appreciate your pointing out the difference between cement and concrete, something not appreciated by many people.

Still, when I state "From the website" it seems to me that what follows should be their words rather than my edited version.

Something for me to think about.

Joe-

Love your blog. I need to correct you here: cement is not concrete. Concrete is a mixture of cement, sand and gravel. Since these are small, I have to assume they have no gravel. The smooth texture indicates they probably don't have any sand. So, I'm going with cement.
