Cultured Pearl Necklace 20 Inch Black Oval White Round Knotted Silk Silver Hook
Pearl necklace description
This is a 20 inch necklace of black and white cultured freshwater pearls. These pearls have a nice orient that reflects the light well. This princess length was created with two types of pearls: 6.5 – 7.8 mm white in a round shape and 5.6 – 6.5 mm black in an oval shape. These are strung on real silk with a knot tied between each pearl. The individual knots serve to keep the pearls from rubbing against one another. (It is best not to accept short-cut knotting that only knot between every other or even every 6 pearls as that will not protect the soft pearls from chaffing each other.) Being strung on real silk makes the strand hang beautifully. They lay on a ladies skin like a liquid, following all contours. The synthetic strings do not allow the same beauty as this natural silk does it better.
The fastener is an easy hook design created by the Thailand hill tribes. These clasp are silver and are usually made a bit richer than Sterling 925 with 950 as a common alloy that these metal smiths favor. A secure style that is simple to put on.
