Vintage AAA 2.4-8mm double strand pale golden Akoya pearl necklace & 9ct white gold Art Deco diamond clasp
A beautiful reconditioned vintage double strand pale golden saltwater pearl necklace with a 9ct white gold and diamond Art Deco pearl clasp. The shorter strand is 49.5cm (19.5 inch), the longer strand 20.5 inches, and the strands nest perfectly together. 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 2.5-8mm pearls are rare pale golden (Kinsyoku) Akoya pearls with a thick nacre, incredible luster and subtle champagne overtones. Only a few pearls have minor imperfections, so are graded AAA. The clasp is a set with 15 white diamonds.
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.
