These multi strand necklaces are always flattering. This one is made up of five different colours of lustrous, baroque, cultured, freshwater pearls. There is a white strand, a grey strand, a pink strand, a peacock strand and a peach strand, with each baroque pearl at 8 mm x 5 mm (this is approximate as each pearl is different in shape and size). All the pearls, except for the white strand, have been dyed.
However, most pearls are in fact dyed. Dyed pearls come about through a number of techniques. The one I know, through someone who has a pearl farm in China, is one in which the pearls are placed for a month or more in a container with a liquid saturated with a powder dye. Electrodes gently move the pearls about so that they are evenly coloured. Although people say the colour can fade, I have been working (and wearing) dyed pearls for many years. As long as you don't spray perfume or hairspray onto the pearls, the colour remains. None of my pearls have faded.
A silver toggle clasp has been used because toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with its own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
The necklace is 17 inches long (40.5 cm).
