Edwardian Graduated Cultured Pearls, Oval Diamond Clasp c.1920
A beautiful row of graduated cultured (Akoya) pearls with small pearls set in between each of the larger ones as the row graduates towards the front creating a more unusual look. The necklace is strung with an Edwardian oval diamond set clasp typical of the era. The clasp is set with diamonds in a geometric design within the oval and has a hook style catch which is hidden when closed, this also acts as a safety device.
The pearls are ivory in colour and have a good lustre.
