A wonderful three-strand pearl necklace with all the lush glamour of the Art Deco era. The graduated cultured pearls are hand knotted on white silk. They have the dreamy, creamy luster we love to see in old pearls. The necklace is finished with a gorgeous silver gilt slide clasp; it resembles a many-petaled flower, beautifully engraved and set with sweet little seed pearls. A good pearl necklace is the cornerstone of anyone's jewelry collection, this one would make a stunning addition to yours. Circa 1920.
Cultured pearls are created by adding an irritant, such as a grain of sand or small bead to a pearl oyster to encourage it to cover the irritant in nacre, thus creating a pearl.
Details....The necklace has a wearable length of 19" long. The pearls graduate in size from 3.5mm to 7mm. The clasp measures 17.1mm by 10.7mm. In Very Good Vintage Condition. You should always expect some wear on Vintage and Antique Jewels, we consider it a part of the charm.
