Vintage, Graduated Pearl necklace on a 9ct white gold ball clasp.
A classic row of graduated, saltwater, cultured pearls finished with a very simple 9ct white gold ball clasp. These pearls graduated from approximately 4 mm to 7 mm in a relatively smooth graduation. The pearls have a few blemishes to the surface, and a slight variation in colour from cream to white. The shapes vary from round to oval with the centre pearl being of the most oval. The lustre is fair and I think these have been looked after well. The pearls are strung without a knots between each pearl.
The clasp is 9ct white gold and is of a light enough weight to not require hallmarking. It measures approximately 8 mm in diameter and functions as new, but it is definitely a more modern replacement.
These would make a great Brides or Bridesmaids gift.

All vintage items have been worn and loved before they find their next owner, so they should always be worn or used with a little more care than a brand new piece. Some minor scratches are normal. All vintage pieces I sell have been thoroughly cleaned and lightly polished when required. If repairs are needed before it's offered for sale, they are completed sympathetically.
Thank you for looking and please have a look around the other items in my shop.
