This is a beautiful double strand of cultured pearls – a total of 14.5” of beautiful 5.0 mm pearls in creamy white with light rose undertones.
The sterling silver Mikimoto signature double clasp features a 3.5mm pearl and, on the back of the clasp, "M" in a Shell (the Mikimoto symbol) and "SILVER" for Sterling.
These strands of sixty five (65) pearls were purchased in the 1950s and are hand strung on silk thread.
This bracelet was worn only on special occasions and was lovingly cared for almost 70 years!
The clasp and pearls are in excellent condition with light surface wear to the clasp.
Marks: "M" inside a Shell, "SILVER" (Sterling Silver).
Notes on Mikimoto:
Mikimoto signature pearls are the personification and embodiment of class and are in the top 5% of all cultured pearls. If you've ever seen a strand up close, you know that they are the picture of perfection!
They are hand-chosen and their clasps are marked with the Mikimoto symbol, "M" in the shell. This is a quality guarantee mark by which the jewelry is proven to be among the best in the world.
Mikimoto is responsible for any jewelry design creation carrying this mark for the lifetime following its purchase.
