'Kasumi style' white ripple pearl necklace on gold filled chain.
Seven lovely creamy white ripple pearls (approx. 9-10mm diameter) are front and center in this simply elegant necklace. The pearls are wire wrapped together with 14kt gold filled wire and attached to a delicate yet sturdy 14kt gold filled rollo chain. At 18" long this piece is perfect for layering.
These pearls are not all perfectly round or smooth and there may be very slight variances in size & shape between pearls. They have a very organic look which I love !
The original Kasumi pearls were harvested from lake Kasumi in Japan where production ended in the 1980s due to pollution. The 'Kasumi style' ripple pearls today are fresh water pearls produced in China.
