This elegant double strand necklace of essentially uniform natural saltwater pearls dates from circa 1920. The pearls are round to near-round, and have that incomparable creamy pinkish glow found in the best pearls from the Persian Gulf. They are superbly matched for color and luster.

The large (3/4 inch length), intricately designed clasp is 18K white gold, set with a European-cut diamond and 20 rose-cut diamonds. The beauty of this clasp, combined with the uniform size of the pearls, make it perfect to show off worn to the side, rather than the back of the neck.

The necklace measures 16 inches, ideal for a small to average neck, and weighs a substantial 11.2 grams. The certificate shown, as well as appraisal for $8,050, are included.

Antique natural pearls are increasingly rare, and double strand necklaces even more so. For centuries, men fought and died for natural pearls, not the products of cultured pearl farms. Collect these rarities while it's still possible to do so!
