Vintage AAA 6.5-7mm golden Akoya pearl necklace & 9ct gold pearl-set clasp
A beautiful 54cm (21.25 inch) reconditioned vintage golden saltwater pearl necklace with 9 carat yellow gold and pearl-set clasp. The pearls are newly hand knotted between each pearl, onto double threaded white silk.
These Japanese Akoya pearls are very unusual, as they have not been bleached or "pinked" so exhibit the natural colour of Akoya pearls. The beautiful 6.5-7mm pearls are rare golden (Kinsyoku) Akoya pearls with a thick nacre, incredible luster and rose and silver overtones. The pearls have no imperfections, so are graded AAA. The clasp is set with perfectly matched 4.5mm golden Akoya pearls. The clasp is fully hallmarked (markers mark TJ, 375 for 9ct, Birmingham, 1992).
These pearls are a classic. Akoya pearls with this colour and luster are highly prized. The necklace will be presented in a complimentary gift box.
