Three strands of larger white freshwater pearls create a rich cluster as a focal point with silver accents and a black handmade silk ribbon. The black ribbon allows this multi strand bib to be adjusted for the perfect length, so it can be worn as different looks with different necklines. Perfect for a bridal accessory, as part of wedding fashion, as a deluxe gift, or just a contemporary version of a classic white pearl necklace. A statement necklace that is elegant and romantic.

The multi strand focal point is 11" long. Each pearl strand is linked with silver Czech glass beads to a textured, silver finished metal oval. The ribbon can be knotted, tied in a bow and positioned where you prefer, or interchanged with other colors of ribbon or fiber. 10 mm x 7 mm top drilled, rice shaped pearls create a lovely cluster that hangs down about 1 1/2" center front. The freshwater white pearls have a beautiful luster. This design is also available with metal parts in an antique silver finish as a separate listing here in my studio here https://www.etsy.com/listing/98562798/white-pearl-bib-cluster-on-silk-ribbon?

I have a wide range of ribbons available and can possibly help you with a color that will best suit your outfit--please drop me a note with your needs. White pearls are such a classic, and my design is classic, too, but with a contemporary artisan update. Suitable for business, formal and casual wear, easily adaptable for wedding wear.

I adore pearls and so this design evolves in different sizes, shapes and colors of pearls and please visit this section in my studio for an overview of what is currently available. http://www.etsy.com/shop/WillOaksStudio?section_id=7631294

Additional notes about WillOaks Studio Pearl Bib Necklaces:

I began to develop this bib design structure for pearls several years ago. Earlier versions used silver chain, crocheted silk chain, and beaded "chains" to hold this multistrand cluster of pearls.

Then I discovered and began to use artisan dyed handmade silk ribbons to secure them. I love this approach because the "cluster" can be beautifully worn at different lengths from a higher choker to a longer opera length. Since the handmade ribbons are around 37-40" long, when used double and tied in a knot or a bow, there are many different looks that can be achieved with these pieces..

Because pearls are a natural, variable material and dye lots will vary and I often cannot get more a particular lot. So when they are sold out, that edition is usually complete.

The range of uses for these pieces is really exciting. Some examples include formal wear with a bow in the back over a sleeveless gown; with a bow tied on the side with a semi-formal top; as a kind of ascot under a blouse or button down shirt, peeking from between collar; tied long and loose over a turtleneck sweater and worn with jeans.

I've been a huge fan of pearls for many years so I don't think they need to be saved just for formal wear (although they are certainly perfect worn this way!) I love them with business suits, with dresses or with a blouse and jeans. And my bib design can be adjusted to handle different necklines so has the versatility to move from the board room to the dance floor! Enjoy!!

I am always hunting for new pearl colors and sizes so check back regularly!
