Rustic, Asymmetrical Green Pearl and Peridot Necklace

I combined and hand-knotted strands of candy apple green freshwater pearls and smooth peridot ovals to create a rustic, single-stranded long necklace. These pearls are smaller, smooth, oval-shaped beauties, averaging approximately 4 x 6 mm. They are hand-knotted in a continuous loop with genuine peridot gemstones that have been polished into clear, smooth ovals. The pearls and peridot stones are threaded onto two strands of dark brown silk cord, which have been woven into a primitive macrame design. The strand is finished with a 14k gold filled toggle clasp.

The total length of this necklace is approximately 40 inches. It can be worn in a long, single strand or doubled for a layered look.

The necklace pictured here has found a home; you will receive a similar, but no identical, 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.
