Queen of Pearls Necklace
White South Sea Pearl necklace with a 14k gold clasp
The queen of pearls.
White South Sea pearls are treasured for their luxurious size and brilliant satin luster. These valuable pearls are produced by the famous silver-lip variety of the Pinctada maxima pearl oyster, along the coasts of Australia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. As the rarest pearls on earth, a single strand of these magnificent gems can take many years of harvests to assemble, as each pearl must be painstakingly matched for size, roundness, colour, and quality. The size ranges from 8 mm to extremely rare 23 mm.
