This gorgeous estate vintage akoya pearl double strand necklace has floral 14k gold diamond pearl clasp that can be worn towards the front as a beautiful ornament. The individually knotted, lightly lustrous ivory pearls average 7 to 7.75mm. The length of the necklace measured by the inner strand of pearls is 15 1/2 inches. The outer strand of pearls is about 16 1/2 inches long and clasp nicely below the first strand. The 14k gold filigree clasp is adorned with two flowers, each set in the center with a 4.7-5mm pearl. Between the clasp pearls is a .25ct round brilliant diamond. The fine white diamond is G-H color and SI2 clarity. The necklace is in very good vintage condition, but there is slight wear to some of the pearls if you look with magnification.
The clasp is marked 14k.
The pearls weigh 55.6 grams.
