Five Strand Pearl Necklace with 9ct Gold and Mabe Pearl Clasp
 
The modern necklace has five strands of pearls and a very large 9ct gold clasp, which is hand-made and unique, and which is set with six round pearls (grading from 7.5 to 3mm – round; cream, mainly with pink overtones; slight blemishes) and a mabe pearl (slightly irregular shape; circa 28.5mm x 35mm; light cream; good lustre; with some striations). The clasp is unmarked but tests to be 9ct gold.
 
The five strands of pearls are each made up primarily of large pearls, with some smaller pearls at each end. The large pearls are somewhat baroque and measure circa 7-9mm; light cream with some pink overtones; good lustre. There is a total of approximately 253 large pearls. There are approximately 35 small, somewhat baroque pearls; circa 3.5-4mm.
