About

A classic Japanese, Saltwater Akoya Pearl Necklace can be worn as a single strand - or you can wear it doubled using the 14K yellow gold navette clasp to close it.

The pearls are Silver Cream in color with slight Rose, Green and Aubergine overtones. They have a fine, bright orient and luster, are well matched and nicely rounded. Newly re-strung and individually knotted on silk threads for hygienic purposes.

CONDITION: In overall excellent vintage condition with only minute evidence of historic wear and no damage or losses to note. Pearls are rated at A+ quality with very minor blemishing. 14K filigree navette safety closure appears to be original to the piece and is fully functional. Circa 1975, of Japanese origin.

A classic statement for any fine jewelry wardrobe - and virtually timeless!
