This torsade necklace with pendant centerpiece is made of natural pearls, mother of pearl beads, and sterling silver.
The floral strand connector in the center is a hand-carved mother of pearl oval with a sterling bezel-set mother-of-pearl cabochon. It measures 1 1/2" wide by 1 1/8" high. The connector bar on the back is stamped "925".
The three strands of oval freshwater pearls and mother-of-pearl nuggets form a strand approximately 16 1/4" long and 1" wide. If you twist the strands into a slimmer torsade, the length will shorten a little.
Pearls and their subtle pastel inner hues compliment all skin tones; try the necklace on a jewel color with a dark tone for added drama!
