It was a great sensation when the Japanese entrepreneur Mikimoto succeeded in bringing full-round saltwater pearls to market in the early 1920s. Until then, pearl necklaces had to be made from naturally grown pearls, which were about as expensive as diamonds of the same size. It wasn't until the invention of the cultured pearl that pearl jewellery became affordable to a wider mass and sparked a huge fashion that has lasted to this day. Mikimoto's invention is also to thank for the present necklace made of fine cultured pearls. It is in the classic form of the so-called "Collier Chute", with a length of about 42 cm and a typical gradient shape. At the bottom in the center is the largest pearl; starting from it, the pearls become smaller and smaller on both sides towards the top. This is also alluded to by their name, which is derived from French "chuter" = to fall off, to crash. We have had the pearls re-strung and knotted so that they can be worn without worry. The yellow gold clasp presents a beautiful ruby of intense red colour. It is a synthetic stone grown in a laboratory using the Verneuil process, which was relatively new at the time. Probably made in the years around 1930, the chain was restrung by us.
