This is a lovely set of creamy fresh-water pearls. It is a twist of 18 inches that would look so perfect on a V neck blouse or sweater. It has a lobster claw closure. The pearls are 1/4 inch but a little longer because they are baroque. A really nice look.. This would make a terrific gift for Mothers day or graduation, it will come in a velvet bag and gift box ready to give to that special person. For you from Kansas!
