Biwa Pearl Necklace, Natural White Ivory Ecru, Hand-Knotted Single Strand

This necklace features unusually large freshwater stick pearls (approximately 20 mm x 6 mm) hand-knotted on silk cord and finished with a sterling silver spring-ring clasp. The pearls vary in shape and size, with some surface irregularities, but are uniformly lustrous, with thick and shining nacre that reflects a full spectrum of color.

The total length of this necklace is approximately 19 inches long; it is a versatile, updated classic you'll love to wear.

This necklace pairs beautifully with any of my pearl earrings:

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.
