Long pearl necklace is a continuous strand of sixty inches of hand-knotted, gorgeous, genuine freshwater pearls and has matching freshwater pearl drop earrings. These genuine freshwater pearls are made by artifically inserting unusually-shaped foreign objects into mollusks which causes the mollusks to create pearls over time in the same manner that natural pearls are created. The only difference between freshwater and natural pearls is that the foreign object which becomes the nucleus of the pearl is inserted intentionally rather than as an accident of nature. This process has made genuine pearl necklaces that had previously only been available to the wealthy at affordable prices. The genuine freshwater pearls of this beautiful necklace feature the interesting shapes of naturally formed pearls with each pearl having its own unique personality. A long strand of 8MM pearls like this has been a woman's status symbol for hundreds of years. Remember the movie, The Girl With the Pearl Earrings with Scarlett Johannson? The earrings that match this genuine freshwater pearl necklace measure approximately 7/8 x 5/16" on fish hook closures for pierced ears with tiny soft plastic stoppers to keep them securely in place and with you -- and they can do double duty when you wear them by themselves. Now, you can have the earrings and the necklace too -- a magnificent long strand of freshwater pearls that measure a generous 8MM and have all the beautiful, natural striations and luminosity of genuine pearls from mollusks that these are. A beautiful and remarkable value! Price includes domestic UPS Ground shipping. (#40722-PearlsNecklaceSet60Inch8MMFreshwater)
