Elegant Bali with Cultured and Freshwater White Pearls
This product is currently sold out.
Pearls are always a mainstay for any woman’s jewelry collection. In this necklace, the 17x21mm focal bead is an ornate Bali bead in the shape of a somewhat flattened round shape ~ side to side. On both sides of the Bali bead, a sterling silver chain drops with two white pearls and a sterling silver spacer between. The main necklace portion is composed of 5mm cultured and freshwater white pearls, interrupted along the strand by various Bali ornate beads, the styles of which are different in each set of three. The finishing touch is a sterling silver ‘S’ clasp. The matching earrings contain sterling silver threads with both pearls and Bali beads attached to the ends.
The necklace measures 21 ¼” including the clasp. The earring threads and dangles measure 5 ¾”. If you aren’t familiar with ear threads, they can be pulled through your pierced ears as much as you wish for shortening.
I, as well as many other women, have a kind of ‘love affair’ with pearls. I particularly like white pearls with sterling silver bead enhancements. Bali beads are particularly beautiful. This description of Bali beads is provided by Artbeads: “Bali beads are handmade by artists in Bali, using genuine sterling silver. Many techniques and patterns have been passed down from generation to generation, and new elements continue to be added as the modern Bali artists hone their skills. To create a piece, the artist applies granulation (silver dots) and wires in detailed patterns that are further enhanced by an oxidation process. Ownership of any Bali and pearl necklace should be considered a treasure to be worn and admired".
