A friend of mine once told me that the most treasured piece of jewelry she owns is a very long pearl necklace her grandmother gave her. Besides the sentimental value, the necklace was very versatile, could be worn flapper-style single strand, wrapped twice or wrapped thrice around her neck depending on her mood and outfit! This got me thinking, I would like to make a necklace that could be one day given to grand-daughters to be cherished for years to come.
This 60 inch necklace is made from very unusually shaped cultured freshwater pearls. The rod-shaped pearls are separated by the tiniest of seed pearls. Very beautiful. The pearls are off-white in color with a creamy pink tinge. Wear it in a single strand, double strand or even triple strand around your necklace. Only need earrings and a bracelet, this strand of pearls can be wrapped 6 to 8 times around your wrist for a stylish look. The matching earrings come with your purchase of the necklace.
Pearls are thought to represent innocence and integrity. A favorite with brides. It is the birthstone for June.
Length: 60 inches.
Beading Wire: 0.15"/49 strand clear-coated stainless steel professional quality beading wire with sterling silver crimps and crimp covers.
