This 4 strand beauty has AA quality cultured pearls in a true choker length of 15 1/2" long. The 145 pearls measures 7mm to 7.5mm. I have had them newly restrung with hand knotted silk for freshness and longevity. 116 glass paste stones are set in clasp that has a tongue and box style closure. It is in perfect working order and has substance to it. This centrepiece is styled in a ravishing Belle Epoque style and Kenneth is the king of taking early styles and doing them over for a new epoch. The paste stones are cut in a very unusual Swiss Seventeen style of cut. Once in awhile Kenneth would make a piece of jewelry for a wealthy client that would have real cultured pearls and this one is a case in point. You can see the Kenneth Lane copyright stamp on the back of the clasp. This gorgeous clasp has all it's original paste that are still shining bright as is the tested gold plate white metal on it. This is simply a stellar piece of vintage jewelry with all the bells and whistles that Kenneth can bring to the party.
I have a little bonus waiting for the lucky purchaser of this necklace that will be revealed upon request.
