This Vintage Necklace--purchased on a Mediterranean cruise in the 1950's--is lovely, like something Grace Kelly would have worn! The pearls are creamy white in color, and they shimmer with incredible lustre and iridescence; they have been hand-knotted; and have a very secure fishhook style clasp, made of yellow gold and marked 14 karat. The necklace is approximately 17" long (often called 'Princess' length); the pearl size is approximately 8mm; weight is approximately 40.6 grams. This vintage necklace would make a lovely gift, and would be perfect for a bride or member of the wedding party. *Note: the box shown in the photos is for display and not included."Majorica Pearls are man made pearls made ONLY in Majorca, Spain.
