Creamy white Swarovski glass pearls are like the loosely held group of stars in the Pleiades star cluster. An open cluster is a group of stars formed from the same giant molecular cloud within spiral or irregular galaxies. They orbit the galactic center but they can become disrupted by close encounters with other clusters and lose members. The Pleiades is a well-known open cluster visible in the night sky near the constellation Orion. Most people can see six stars in the Pleiades, but sharped-eyed observers may see more, such as 11 stars observed by the mentor to Johannes Kepler - the same number of glass pearls in this 20" necklace. Pearls float on coated stainless steel beading wire for great drape and easy wear. Necklace has a simple sterling silver hook and eye clasp.

Cost: $40.00 USD

Length: necklace 20"


  • Swarovski 4mm glass pearls
  • sterling silver hook & eye end cap clasp
  • SoftFlex nylon coated stainless steel beading cord

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be stretched or kinked through hard jerks or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent distorting cord. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

The components in this necklace are tough enough to handle curious tugs and pulls. Pearls should be handled with care to avoid scratching. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
