This beautiful natural saltwater pearl clasp dates from about 1930. There are 121 pearls ranging in size from 6.41mm (center) to 2.37mm. The pearls vary from white to cream and have beautiful luster. The necklace has just been restrung on white silk and is 'princess' length, about 18" -- this will sit well on almost any neck.

The beaded and milgrained 14k white gold clasp shows fabulous Deco style, and is set with three Old European cut diamonds (brighter than the photos show) and three single-cut diamonds.

Total weight of the necklace is 8.9 grams, showing that these pearls have good density (almost forgotten now, but in the past density was a strong factor in determining price).

The certificate is of course included with the necklace, together with an appraisal for $6,400.
