White Hand Knotted Fresh Water Pearls 21 Inches

Renee says: “Traditional hand knotted, white fresh water pearls with sterling silver “bolt ring” clasp. This allows you to wear most (not all) pendants in the front, with the pearls as the “chain”, for a classic look. This strand of pearls can also be worn with the clasp in the back for a more traditional look. These are top grade fresh water pearls, which are hand knotted here in Australia in the Chinese method for longevity and strength. I classify these as smaller pearls and vary slightly in size and shape, which is a result of their natural growth. Click on images for up close peek.

The pearls do NOT include any of the pendants shown in the photos. I am showing these as a variety of ways and looks the pearls offer with different pendants.

Cultured fresh water pearls that are farmed and created using fresh water mussels. These pearls are produced almost exclusively produced in china. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission requires that farmed freshwater pearls be referred to as “freshwater cultured pearls” in commerce. Quality of cultured freshwater pearls is evaluated through a grading system of a series of A values, based on luster, shape, surface, color, color and matching.
