Vintage AA+ 7-7.5mm pale golden Akoya pearl necklace & white gold diamond clasp
A beautiful 47cm (18.5 inch) reconditioned vintage pale golden saltwater pearl necklace with an unmarked white gold and diamond art deco pearl 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 7-7.5mm pearls are rare pale golden (Kinsyoku) Akoya pearls with a thick nacre, incredible luster and subtle champagne overtones. The pearls have minor imperfections, so are graded AA+. The clasp is a set with 0.06ct white diamonds.
These pearls are a classic. Akoya pearls with this colour and luster are highly prized. The necklace will be presented in a Mappin & Webb Ltd blue velvet lined box.
