A vintage necklace from around 1950 Germany from "Christ", who has 155 years experience, with natural cream coloured genuine Akoya sea pearls, that have a very good quality luster with a strong reflecting slight-silver shine. The pearls show small natural growth sings, we took pictures up close so you can see what we mean. All pearls are single knotted. This one string necklace is accompanied with an elegant 14Kt WJ gold clasp. Overall the pearls shows barely any visible signs of wear and the pearls have survived very well through age, if anything the string would need a replacement. Please use the photos to judge the condition, we took them under an evening sun. No photoshop, no filters and no extra sparkles, these are natural pictures as our only intention is to show what the necklace looks like.

===================
Sidenotes:

I'm a collector that travels through Europe from a small city to another in search of beautiful pearls and other treasures for my collection. Others might use this space for meaningful info, but let me take this moment to remind you all of two things. First of all, as I love Akoya pearls, I can't stress enough that they are the beauty of perfection. I remember how as a kid I was attracted to every shiny gem I could find, but as your taste matures you and gets more refined your interest in Akoya pearls will also grow. Look up information on them, let yourself be entangled in that allure. For me it's the pinnacle of perfect pearls in every aspect including the size as the elegance just shines with every piece. Catawiki started off as a platform for collectors to trade pieces and for me that is still the most important part of it. I would like to thank every buyer and seller out there that uses the platform in that regards. This also brings me to the second point, buying and trading online is nice and all, but still I would like to remind everyone to pass by a local jeweler when you acquire a piece to confirm that it is indeed real gold / pearls / gems and not some synthetics. To put this even a step further I try to take pictures close and from far so both the condition and size are clear, but it's hard to live up to different expectations as well. In either case it's not my intention to kick anyone with a piece you hate, so don't be afraid to message me if it didn't fit or wasn't what you expected. We're also people here, so don't worry and tell me the problem, we'll figure something out. (I've already surprised you ended up reading this far) Have a nice! With kind regards, Albert

    Het apart in een leuk doosje verpakte sieraad is stevig verpakt ontvangen. De broche valt in de smaak van de draagster. De bezorging is tamelijk snel verlopen.
