This necklace has very nice quality lapis beads. The beautiful 7.5mm blue lapis beads are accented by cultured 7mm pearls and 5mm 14K gold beads. The contrast of the gold and the white pearls intensifies the blue of the lapis. Interestingly the necklace has a 9K gold clasp but the accent beads test as 14K. The "knot" style fish hook clasp is likely a replacement but it is a very nice clasp marked for 9K gold. The necklace is in good condition. Some tiny dents in the gold beads. The necklace sits very pretty on the neck. The color is gorgeous.
