String of Pearls

Fine vintage torsade of Japanese cultured pearls with gold-diamond clasp, around 1990

This fine necklace made of Japanese cultured pearls is a variation on the classic pearl necklace. It features ten strands of round saltwater pearls with a diameter of just under three millimetres, all individually knotted. These ten rows of fine pearls are held together by a decorative clasp of high-carat gold, which in turn is set with two sparkling bands of brilliant-cut diamonds. The 32 stones in total are brilliant white and of first-class quality. Since the pearl strands are worn slightly twisted into each other, the necklace corresponds to the type of "torsade" (from French: "torsadée" = twisted). We have had the necklace reknotted so that. The piece of jewellery from around 1990 is beautifully preserved and found its way to us here in Berlin - and who knows? Maybe this shimmering jewellery was once bought in an elegant shop on the Ku-Damm?
