For your consideration is this stunning fresh water pearl Bali Suarti necklace. She has been in business for over 20 years and this wonderful old piece has nice patina and age. It carries 9 fresh water pearls with a nice very light gray color and wonderful opalescence ! I definitely have NOT been able to capture the opalescence in my photos. Thee piece is marked 915 BA - the Bali Suarti mark. Desak Nyoman Suarti is one of the pioneers of Bali’s silver industry. It has the hook closure commonly found on Bali jewelry.
The necklace measures 16 and 3/8 inches when hooked. The center design when laid straight across measures 3 and 1/2 by 2 inches.
It is in excellent condition with fully functioning hardware and no damage. The patina on the sterling silver really adds to the look. Laid flat for picture taking, it hangs beautifully when worn.
