Here is a very fine necklace of cultured pearls graduating from 3.3 to 6.8 mm. and measuring 17 1/2" long. The cultured pearls in this unknotted, single strand have white color and rose overtone, all round shape, light to moderate blemishes, and excellent luster and matching. Their over-all quality is very fine because of their exceptionally thick nacre, which is not seen anymore.

The top of the oval box clasp is silver and the thin base, 18-karat rose gold (both tested). It is charmingly designed as six stylized petals, each of which is bead-set with a small rose-cut diamond, the six weighing about 0.06 carat total. In the center is bezel-set an oval, cabochon almandine garnet measuring about 6 x 4 mm., having dark, brownish orangey red color. The male part is also 18-karat rose gold. It is stamped with a dog's head, which is the Portuguese hallmark for silver and gold mixed in the same item. It is recorded as having been in use from 1938-1984.

This necklace will make the perfect gift for the high school or college graduate, as well as for the lover of fine vintage cultured pearls.
