This long, 34 inch, hand knotted necklace would adorn any outfit. The combination of 12mm (approximately) freshwater pearl coins and teal mother of pearl flower shaped beads provide a sophisticated look for any occasion. The necklace is fastened by a gold tone barrel clasp with gold tone findings.
Coin pearls are formed when a piece of shell or similar (nucleus) is inserted into the mollusc. This foreign particle acts as an irritant which in turn releases nacre around the nucleus, thus forming a coin pearl.
These asymmetrical, flat coins have a natural lustrous iridescent coating. Although not flawless the imperfections unique to each coin are evidence of their naturalness.
