This spectacular necklace contains 16 strands of beautifully matched Japanese pearls. On either side of the necklace are 2 18KT braided gold plaques containing diamonds and pearls. The necklace detaches in 2 places, making 2 seperate pieces to the necklace. The main piece has the gold diamond and pearl plaque on each end with a groove entry. It measures 11 1/2 inches in length. The second portion has the tongue portion of the closure and a safety clasp on each end. It measures 9 inches in length. I think the necklace is best worn with the 2 gold, diamond and pearl plaques on either side of the neck. This necklace is completely handmade. It can be worn with the pearls twisted or flat, giving it a beautiful waterfall effect. It is rich and lush-looking on the skin. This piece is in excellent condition.
