Vintage 1930s natural saltwater pearl graduated necklace with marquise diamond clasp ✶ SALE ✶

An exquisite strand of natural (saltwater) pearls with a marquise diamond clasp. The one-hundred and forty-five (145) near-round pearls are individually knotted in a gently graduated sequence. They range in size from 2.4 -5.4 mm and shimmer with a creamy, rosy luster. The pearls secure with a .50 carat vintage marquise diamond clasp (VS2/F) and safety chain. As Erica Weiner relates in her excellent research on the history of pearls, the Roman author Pliny the Elder wrote, "a pearl worn by a woman is as good as a [herald] walking in front of her." Indeed, pearls - especially natural pearls - are the ultimate luxury.
