What's more elegant than a classic strand of luscious white pearls? Not much. This vintage beauty measures 34 inches long and has some of the prettiest little pearls we've seen.
They have beautiful luster and meet all of the tests of authentic, cultured pearls.
This set came out of an estate of a very wealthy woman. We were able to capture some choice pieces, but the auction was fierce.
For thousands of years, pearls have been making their way into jewelry.
Once it was realized that the pearl was not among the twelve gems that symbolized the apostles, he concluded that they were reserved only for God. In this way, pearls came to symbolize purity and harmony.
These pearls are classic white, with a touch of pink iridescence. Each pearl is more beautiful than the last. The strand is hand-knotted on silk thread and culminates in a classic, filigree "pearl-clasp" made of 14 karat yellow gold.
This necklace remains in spectacular vintage condition.
Though the pearl has long stood as the traditional gift for the 30th anniversary, we think they work for any and every occasion.
Giving a pearl necklace only feels half as special as receiving one.
