This a a very special strand of pearls...it was given to me gradually one by one my birthday ever since I was Born in 1979 up until I turned 21 and my granny ordered the 14K gold and diamond clasp to seal the pearls with a timeless and brilliant clasp. My family heritage is quite interesting and unique just like these pearls are the same. I am the great grand-daughter of the former senator/governor of the State of Louisiana named Huey Pierce Long. He was famous political figure that was known for all he did to make Louisiana a state to be proud of...he was a hero to the common man and a pain to the men that controlled the wealth of the State because he would find ways to rob the rich to give to the poor. He provided public school kids with textbooks for free, built all the roads and bridges that helped the state to grow and that's just the beginning. He was however assassinated by one of Roosevelt's close family members because he was going to run for President and Roosevelt would probably not be the victor. I was raised in a family that has a strong sense of heritage, tradition, and pride and my grandmother provided me with a wonderful family heirloom that has a timeless place in my heart when she gave me this necklace beginning when I was born and being completed when I turned 21 years old. Very top end item...you can't get a more perfect natural saltwater pearl than these Persian pretties! You won't ever regret giving a gift like this to your loved one or cherishing it as your own.
