Rare Early Graduated Japanese Freshwater Pearl Necklace
With a luminous lustre, this rare, early (quite likely Lake Biwa) cultured freshwater mussel Pearl three-row necklace is stunning. Circa 1950's, and graduated in size from 2-5mm, the Pearls are a gentle baroque shape. Collar length, with the shortest row at 14.5 inches, it would make a wondrous wedding necklace. Finished with a lovely marcasite set silver safety clasp, and in wonderful condition.
