Simple and quite chic, like wearing a chain, only it is made up of flat, square shaped baroque pearls, which are cultured freshwater pearls. Each is 10 mm square by 3 mm. deep. And each has a baroque imperfection and texture as well as a wonderful lustre. They are in a taupe colour, which makes them easy to wear and to blend in. The colour is 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 ½ inches long (44.5 cm).
