Rare Silver High Lustre Round Akoya Sea Pearls
Fully knotted on silk, this is a set of silver grey, high lustre, cultured, marine or seawater pearls.
These silver pearls have a bright ‘electric’ overtone and excellent lustre (the surface shine). These beautiful seawater pearls originate from Japan and this necklace of lovely 6mm silver round pearls is 47cms (18.5 inches) and has 70 pearls.
The silver colour is very rare in Akoya pearls, which are usually white or occasionally gold.
The clasp is an original silver Art Deco clasp decorated with marcasite gems, which are intact and in excellent vintage condition. It was originally on a faux pearl necklace from the 1930s. It opens by squeezing the edges of the flat hook, to remove it from, or push it into, the rectangular clasp box. This is a traditional pearl necklace clasp and is secure.
