This is a rare and beautiful graduated strand of antique natural pearls. Pearls are the only gemstones that are created by a living being. These natural pearls were found in a mollusk in saltwater and highly collectible. The pearls have a very high lustre and are nicely matched in color. What an elegant and classic look for everyday wear. These pearls have recently been re-strung on silk with knots and need to be worn to relax the stringing. This would be an incredible heirloom to pass on generation to generation.

  • Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually.

    For gold rings, the higher the karat weight, the softer the metal will be, and the easier it will scratch. Frequent polishing is unecessary. Polishing your rings removes layers of metals and will thin it out through time.  

    The same goes with platinum, as it is a malleable and softer metal, yet denser, which makes it last longer.  Platinum is also a white metal naturally and stays white, whereas white gold is yellow that has white alloys giving it a whiter appearance, but will never be as white as platinum. 

    For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
