This is one of the few jewelry items where the name is the same as the item itself. However, this is also a jewelry staple and needs no story; a pearl necklace is its own story. Pearl necklaces make popular gifts to at milestones events like graduation, marriage or arrival of children; however, they are just as easily a gift to oneself for an easy "go-to" wardrobe accessory. Whatever the reason, a pearl necklace is a pleasure to wear. These are high grade 6-8mm cultured freshwater rice pearls farmed along the coasts of China strung with hand-knotted silk thread for maximum fluidity. As a stringing material, it's difficult to top silk thread for outstanding drape. The only downside is that silk thread does deteriorate over time and pearl necklaces need to be restrung. However, with careful cleaning and storage, necklaces can be worn many years before this is needed. This necklace features a sterling silver clasp, but 14kt gold-fill can be used just as easily. If you would prefer gold rather than silver, you can make a note in the special instructions when you check out.

Cost: $65.00 USD

Length: necklace - 18"


  • freshwater pearls
  • sterling silver lobster clasp
  • silk thread

Care & cleaning: Silk thread may be frayed or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or fraying thread. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

Sustained pulling on the silk thread can stretch it and distort the spacing between the knots so it's recommended to keep this out of reach. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
