This 18-inch AAA strand was hand-selected in Asia by our expert buying team who select only from the top grade available. This means that although the pearls are freshwater, they boast nearly perfect shape, surface and luster.
The size of the pearls in this strand range from 8.5-9.0 mm in size. This is a very important distinction when shopping for pearls. A strand of pearls that is 8.0-9.0 mm will traditionally be composed mostly of pearls in the 8.0-8.5 mm pearls with very few measuring 8.5-9.0 mm pearls. Our strands are composed of 100% 8.5-9.0 mm pearls. Not only does this make a significant difference in value, it's a difference you can see and feel.
The multi-hued colors of pink and lavender are completely natural. We individually knot every pearl on silk thread so the pearls never rub or scratch against each other. We finish the strand with a solid, 14-karat gold clasp with a safety catch to forever protect your investment.
