This estate high quality 24" 5mm cultured pearl necklace features alternating 18K solid gold beads, a removable pendant adorned with a natural ruby and earth mine diamonds.
There are so many stamps on this spectacular necklace, which testify to the high quality of the material, that there is no doubt this Retro period necklace was previously owned by a sophisticated, elegant and wealthy lady.
There are approximately 84 cultured pearls forming the 60 centimeter long necklace. They are well matched in color and have very good luster and thick nacre. Their creamy white color is interrupted by an alternating equal number of 18 carat solid gold separators. The barrel like slide lock, which closes the necklace, is also in 18-carat gold and in perfect working condition.
The detachable pendant is adorned with a heart-shaped natural pigeon blood colored ruby which measures approximately 5mmx5mm. The pendant is made out of mother-of-pearl and is further adorned, on its outer frame and on its bail, with 13 brilliant-cut diamonds measuring approximately 1mm each. The pendant snaps lock on the necklace and is secured by a figure 8.
This is a stunning and timeless piece of jewelry, a heirloom necklace that would be perfect for that special occasion.
