This beautiful A quality necklace features outstanding AA luster, slightly off round A shape and A body. This necklace is carefully hand strung, using the finest silk thread. Double knots are hand tied between each and every cultured pearl – to protect the cultured pearls from rubbing against each other. Your necklace will be carefully packed and shipped to you in an elegant velvet lined box and accompanied by lots of free extras. And, if you choose, we would be delighted to gift wrap your necklace and turn this necklace into an unforgettable gift. Each cultured pearl is beautifully unique and is made by a natural organism; no two cultured pearls are exactly alike. The cultured pearl color that you receive may vary slightly from that shown in the picture. Cultured pearls are playful with light, and depending on the light conditions you view them at, they will present a slightly different color – a fascinating phenomenon. We invite you to look at your cultured pearls in bright sunlight, on a cloudy day and inside your home. The change of color you will see will surprise and amaze you. We hope you enjoy the natures beauty and its unique color spectrum that cultured pearls offer.
