We have a RARE, antique 2 strand necklace of both natural and cultured South Sea pearls that comes with a GIA graded pearls report. The clasp contains 3 brilliant diamonds. The necklace dates to the period between 1895 - 1905 and weighs 21.10 grams. This is such a rare and very divine find. We are always amazed at how much natural pearls go for at the high end estate auctions we attend e.g. a set of natural pearl earrings sold for $80,000, far surpassing auction expectations. Well, in this necklace, there's a full strand of natural pearls. Need I say more?
And of course, few bracelets adorn a wrist as beautifully as a pearl bracelet. We have one of those for you too! The cultured pearl and 14k gold bead bracelet below has a fabulous double ram's head diamond clasp. Dating to the 1970's but perfect for today, it's unique and oh so classy!
Enjoy the video above which is set to the wonderful old song, "String of Pearls" (of course!) and if you want to know more about pearl jewelry, which, by the way, should be worn and not kept in box so that our own body oils help the pearls retain their lustre, you can read that article I referenced above AT THIS LINK. But first of all, click on the photos or links above to go directly to these lovely pearl pieces in our DIVINE FINDS JEWELRY SHOP so you can see more photos and join the ranks of other beautiful women who value pearls.
