Evocative Natural Saltwalter Pearl Necklace
Edwardian neoclassical design evokes images of gentlemen in formal tailcoat ensembles and ladies in floor length gowns of gossamer silks and lace with v-shaped necklines and short sleeves. And the jewelry…
Saltwater natural pearls are one of the gem world's rarer baubles. So few exist we hardly hear of them anymore. Sensuous curves of a bow motif dotted with diamonds accent the delicate sweep of a natural baroque saltwater pearl. Suspended from the ribbons, the pearl (10.43 mm by 8.59 mm by 8 mm) radiates a white vanilla cream coloration and is topped by a golden cap.
The ribbon bow form of 18k yellow gold set is encrusted with thirty-two (32) old European and old mine cut diamonds (.63 carats total) all which fall gracefully on the décolletage. Two lengths of fine 14k yellow gold chain interspersed with four natural freshwater pearls suspends the bow pendant.
Accompanied by an EGL USA certificate stating that the baroque pearl is natural saltwater in origin.
Date: Circa 1900.
*Natural pearls are those which are solely made by nature with no interference from man in their creation. Most of us only think of "pearls" which are usually cultured, a process whereby man has inserted a large bead into an oyster and thin layers of nacre have been secreted by the animal covering the bead.
