This Vintage 6 strand rice pearl necklace has the most opalescent little 2 - 3 mm sized pearls, with so many pastel colors. They are from Japan. They are not cultured but natural freshwater pearls. This one is 24 inches long with 6 strands you can wear loose or twist tight. The matching bracelet is also 6 strands and is 8 inches long when not twisted. If you need it shorter, just twist around for your length. Both the necklace and bracelet have the same beautiful clasp, "sterling" is branded on the backs. Too pretty to wear in the back! The clasp is gold over sterling silver, with 16 mm pearls above. They look brand new and I know they sat in a drawer for 30-40 years. They belonged to my mother. No wear on or around the clasp. Both are in exceptional condition. I don't like putting them in the "used" section because they were never worn and look brand new.
