Day to Night

Vintage pearl necklace with rhodium plated silver clasp, around 1970

Are you familiar with "day-to-night" jewelry? In the 19th century, this was the term used to describe earrings in particular, which were transformed from small dormeuses for the day to dramatic pendants for the evening by means of suspending pendulums. The necklace here translates this concept into pearl jewelry, because with a stately yet not extravagant length of 69.0 cm, it is between the classic lengths known as matinée and opera. This makes the necklace a perfect all-rounder that can accompany you to elegant lunches, cocktail hour or evening wear.The piece of jewelry is made of 92 knotted cultured pearls with a cool, lustrous luster. The pearls are the same size, so the clasp can be worn not only at the nape of the neck, but also as an eye-catcher on the side. The clasp, made of silver, shines through a rhodium plating like white gold and also carries another pearl of the same size in the center. The beautiful necklace is in very good condition. A classic piece for the well-stocked jewelry wardrobe!
