This is a vintage necklace made of peacock coloured freshwater cultured pearls. The pearls look green metallic with some rose tones. The pearls are slightly round with some small blemishes, but not on all the pearls (barely visible to the naked eye). I showed this necklace to my appraiser and was told that the pearls are dyed freshwater pearls.
The necklace measures 18 inches long and the pearls have a diameter of 6mm or 1/4 inch. There are 69 pearls hand knotted with a 14k gold clasp with a shell design. The clasp is marked 14k with a maker’s mark.
If you have always coveted a Tahitian pearl necklace, but prefer a more dainty version, this is a great choice. Tahitian peacock pearls are much larger and more expensive, but have the same colour as this necklace. This pretty necklace could be worn daily or for a special event. I have priced these pearls far below the suggested retail price by my appraiser.
