Freshwater Pearl Necklace Station Hand Knotted on Silk, n54
This is a fashionable version of the traditional pearl necklace with a unique and lovely eye-catching sparkle.
I've meticulously hand-knotted these exceptional freshwater pearls on a natural silk cord with tiny Swarovski crystals, with attention to detail and spacing. These pearls have gorgeous luster, are a good size (about 8mm round), and as if they float on the neck. Between each larger pearl are smaller potato-shaped pearls, also knotted along the length of the silk cord.
This classic look is both stylish and versatile, but the Swarovski crystals make the difference here. The crystals are so small and subtle (2.5mm) they're barely visible because they blend in with the silk color so well. However, they provide a bright sparkle that gives this necklace a very updated and modern look.
The larger pearls are approximately 9x7mm and are smooth with beautiful luster. The smaller pearls are approx—5x4 mm and potato-shaped. I've used solid .925 sterling silver components and lobster clasp.
16.5 inches long.
Pearls are the birthstone for June. Referred to as tears of the gods, they symbolize purity, innocence, and faith. They are thought to bring wisdom, good fortune, and long life. They are also known to have a soothing effect on people and lift one's spirits.
