Precious vintage pearl necklace with sapphire & diamond clasp in white gold, circa 1980
Pearl necklaces remain all-time classics whose beauty will certainly never go out of fashion. This necklace made of 75 precious cultured pearls is particularly beautiful and of high quality. The decisive factor for a beautiful pearl necklace is always the so-called matching, i.e. the selection of matching and matching pearls of high quality. In this case, it has been particularly successful to find matching colored pearls and gather them into a necklace. The pearls of the vintage necklace of the 80s of the last century show a wonderful, uniform cream-white color with shimmering overlay. The pearls are individually knotted and strung in the course, that is, they become thicker towards the center. With its length of 64.5 cm, the necklace is a so-called matinee pearl necklace. The clasp made of white gold is also particularly beautiful and of high quality. In its centre shines a sapphire in deep blue, framed by a wreath of twelve small diamonds. A truly beautiful pearl necklace and the perfect match to any outfit.
Pearl necklaces come in quite different lengths and that is why they are so versatile. Whether sporty or elegant, each pearl necklace can enhance clothing in different directions: for casual wear and business we recommend the classic "choker" (35-40 cm), for more festive occasions it may be the slightly longer "matinée necklace" (50-60 cm) and for the grand ball the 70-90 cm long "opera length", also called "sautoir", single or double bound is a noble eye-catcher. A treasure from the depths of the sea - In many cultures of the world the pearl has a deep symbolic character. In China they are a symbol of wealth, wisdom and dignity; in Japan they mean good luck, in India the wealth of children. Even among the ancient Greeks and Romans, pearls were highly coveted as pieces of jewellery: the Greek term "margarita" was also used, as it were, to refer to the beloved, a term that has survived to this day in the name Margarete. The classic pearl necklace must not be missing from a lady's jewellery box
