For a lady of any age

Vintage matinee pearl necklace with white gold clasp, circa 1970

"The pearl as a shimmering beauty for millennia recovered from the depths of the sea, matures in the shellfish in long decades. Only recent research has made it possible to cultivate this precious gift of nature to women in so-called pearl farms, mainly in Japan, in 3 to 7 years. Cultured pearl jewelry, with its velvety shimmer, adds a festive accent to any woman over the age of 17." (From a 1974 jewelry catalog) The present necklace is such a pearl jewellery from the years around 1970. With a length of about 54.5 cm it is a so-called matinee necklace, which looks particularly luxurious and can be worn on many different occasions. The cultured pearls with a silky luster are individually knotted and strung. They are completed by a decorative clasp made of white gold, which is set with another small pearl. We have had the pearls re-strung so that they can be worn safely. The necklace is beautifully preserved and to this day is a timeless classic that no jewelry box would be complete without!
