We don't usually bother much with faux pearl necklaces, there are so many out there, but this was so pretty and nicely made we couldn't resist! It's definitely a cut above the usual, beautifully designed and constructed, with sparkling paste-set solid silver sections which sit either side of the throat.
The necklace secures with a small hook clasp at the top of one of the silver sections. The end few "pearls" of each strand are knotted.
In very good vintage condition, the "pearls" show almost no signs of wear at all and are a lustrous creamy ivory colour. The pastes are well matched, foil backed and very sparkly with no yellowing; one appears to have been replaced.
Marked ENGLAND and SCP on the back of the silver pieces. SCP was the mark used by the well regarded jeweller Ciro of Bond Street (London) and New York for their range of sterling silver costume jewellery, often rhodium plated.
Length: The necklace is 15.5 inches long when measured across the shortest strand. The distance between the two silver paste sections is five inches.
