An updated take on an enduring classic. Natural, fresh water, ivory toned potato pearls make this a great every day necklace. You can dress them up or down, layer them or wear them alone. They have a great warm luster that flatters every skin tone. This strand comes in a 15 inch length with a 3 inch extender for a maximum length of 18 inches. It has been pictured here in the shortest length so you can get an idea of fit. The lobster clasp closure and all additional hardware is gold filled for years of use. These pearls are strung on a coated 48 strand steel cord rather than knotted on silk to avoid breakage and stretching out over time. Please store pearls away from other jewlery as not to scratch them and wipe off skin oils after wearing. Avoid prolonged exposure of pearls to lotions or perfumes or they will become dull. Apply your products and then wait until fully dry to put your pearls on. Pearls are natural and require a little extra care. Please research pearl care for additional info on how to keep them looking their best.
