This necklace features four dramatic strands of unique freshwater pearls. They range in shape and size from dainty "corn" pearls to medium off-round to larger "nugget" to giant ringed "peanut" pearls, all in lovely white and ivory with lustrous nacre. The strands come together at a secure, magnetized barrel clasp in solid sterling silver.
The shortest strand measures approximately 16.5 inches, and the largest outer strand measures approximately 21.5 inches.
This is a modern yet timeless piece that can be enjoyed for decades.
CARING FOR PEARLS
Pearls are porous and need special care. They never should be tossed on top of or next to other gems in a jewelry box; store them in a soft jewelry pouch.
If a pearl necklace is regularly worn, some of the pearls will constantly be in close contact with skin, and may gradually absorb acid that will slowly damage the pearl. Over time, a pearl may not only lose its luster, but change in shape. You can slow this process by wiping the pearls with a soft cloth or chamois after wearing them, and keeping them away from perfume, hairspray, and acidic liquids such as vinegar or lemon juice. Dry air can also damage pearls.
Only use jewelry cleaners labeled as safe for pearls. Never use an ultrasonic cleaner, steam, detergents, toothbrushes or other abrasive materials to clean pearls. Avoid wearing pearls with rough fabrics, and have pearl necklaces restrung yearly if you wear them often.
