Freshwater Pearl Necklace with 14k Filigree Clasp
Being that natural pearls are so rare to find, most pearls today are cultured. For cultured pearls, a tiny bead is implanted into the oyster which, over time, coats the bead in many layers of natural minerals and proteins, referred to as nacre. The best way to care for pearls is to wear them often, as the body's natural oils keep pearls lustrous. Measures 18" long.
