This vintage mid-century Japanese Akoya saltwater pearl double strand necklace with fancy clasp is a classic and romantic style. The two strands measure 15" and 14.25" (pearl end to pearl end without the clasp; the clasp adds another inch). These 7mm white pearls are spherical and exceptionally well matched for size and color. They possess the highly desirable rose overtone. They have no discernible wear or pitting to the naked eye even under bright light. They are strung on knotted silk to be worn overlapping or twisted, as shown in images, but could be easily re-strung to be worn with both strands flat. The necklace is finished with a lovely vintage 3/4" 14K yellow gold clasp accented by three small cabochon rubies and three 6mm Akoya pearls. The catch is clearly marked 14K.
