Edwardian 10-15mm South Sea Pearl Convertible Necklace with Diamond Clasps
A classically beautiful and very unique South Sea Pearl convertible necklace with gorgeous Edwardian (ca1910s) era diamond clasps! This fabulous piece is comprised of a single strand of substantially sized pearls which can convert to be worn as two separate necklaces with the help of two dazzling clasps. The luminous pearls are hand-knotted on ivory-colored thread and exhibit a creamy white color and exceptional luster. One strand has 33 pearls while the other has 35, allowing them to vary slightly in length and nest within each other when worn together. The two strands have matching platinum-topped 18kt yellow gold clasps that display a fantastic foliate motif, each encrusted with 16 Old Mine Cut diamonds weighing approximately 2.25ctw-2.50ctw per clasp. Both clasps have a safety bar underneath for added security and each can fasten to the other to allow for a variety of options. These feminine, elegant necklaces look beautiful when worn individually, paired together, or connected to be worn as a single, long strand. They are versatile in length and would look gorgeous in any pearl lover's collection!
Measurements: When attached, the necklaces measure approximately 36.5" in total length. Individually, the necklaces measure approximately 17.5" and 19" long. The pearls range in size with 10mm being the smallest and 15mm being the largest.
Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the pearls or diamonds, all of which are intact. The clasps and safety bars are all secure and in good working condition and the stringing remains secure and intact. The pearls display natural dimpling, but this does not negatively impact their beauty or integrity.
