Vintage, Pearl necklace on an 18ct gold corrugated Ball clasp.
A classic row of uniform, saltwater, cultured pearls finished with a very simple 18ct gold corrugated ball clasp. These pearls measure approximately 6-6.5 mm. The pearls have a few blemishes to the surface, and a slight variation in colour and lustre through the row. the colour is white to light cream and the lustre is generally bright with a few dipping to lower. The shapes are pretty round and it looks like these have been looked after well. The pearls are strung with knots between each pearl.
The clasp is 18ct yellow gold with a London Hallmark. It measures approximately 7 mm in diameter and functions as new, but it is definitely a more modern replacement. Clasps of this type cost a lot of money new and the last one I sold was £90.
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.
