Story about this pearl: This classic, dainty natural saltwater pearl necklace dates from 1850 to 1900. There are 173 creamy white pearls of pinkish overtone, graduating from 1.45mm at the clasp to 4.91mm at the center. They are beautifully matched, and have a soft, moonlike glow.

The 18K yellow gold push-in clasp features a fine blue cabochon natural sapphire, measuring approximately 4mm x 3mm. The clasp is completed by two rose-cut diamonds. New, 14K knot holders were added to the clasp when the pearls were recently restrung.

The necklace is 18 inches long ('princess' length). Both the certificate shown, and appraisal for $8,550, are included.
