Asymmetrical Prasiolite (Green Amethyst) and Teal Pearl Necklace

This one-of-a-kind necklace is a long strand (approximately 39 inches) of freshwater pearls and smooth prasiolite (also known as green amethyst) ovals. The pearls and gemstones have been knotted on complementary coffee-colored silk cord and can be worn in a single opera-length loop or doubled for a layered look. The pearls are gorgeous in shades of teal and green with peacock, rose, and copper overtones, with thick and lustrous nacre; they vary in shape, with some flat sides (average size is approximately 8 mm). The center-drilled prasiolite stones are large, lucid, and crystal-clear, averaging approximately 8 x 10 mm in size.

The necklace is finished with a sterling silver toggle clasp.

Dress it up or down; this is a seriously versatile, seriously gorgeous necklace.

Pearl origin: China (dyed)

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.
