Blue Pearl and Chalcedony Necklace, Rustic Hand-Knotted Long Strand

This necklace employs pale blue freshwater pearls and lustrous, opaque blue chalcedony; I hand-knotted the pearls and gemstones, using a rustic macrame knot, into a single, long asymmetrical strand. Interspersed between the pearls and gemstones at irregular intervals are tiny Thai silver (97% silver content or higher) beads that add sparkling contrast.

The total length of this necklace is approximately 38 inches, perfect for wearing in a long, single strand or doubling for a layered look. This is a super fun necklace that's easy to dress up or down!

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.
