    • It’s that large sparkling, oval tourmaline quartz, set against the petrol coloured baroque pearls and the zing of cranberry bamboo coral that makes this an eye catching necklace.
    • The tourmaline quartz is set in sterling silver, but made in Jaipur, India, so there is no mark.  But it’s all very solid and the jewellers in Jaipur are noted for their amazing craftsmanship.  The oval is 22.6 mm long x 13 mm wide and 3.6 mm deep. Tourmaline or tourmilated quartz is a special quartz with black rutiles within.
    • The two carved bamboo coral melons are dyed coral (sealed)(12 mm).
    • The baroque cultured freshwater pearls in the petrol colour are also dyed. The pearls are 13 mm.
    • Dyed pearls, which most pearls are, come about through a number of techniques.  The one I know, through someone who has a pearl farm in China, is one in which the pearls are placed for a month or more in a container with a liquid saturated with a powder dye. Electrodes gently move the pearls about so that they are evenly coloured.  Although people say the colour can fade, I have been working (and wearing) dyed pearls for many years. As long as you don't spray perfume or hairspray onto the pearls, the colour remains.  None of my pearls have faded.
    • I have used a silver toggle clasp because toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • The necklace is 18 ½ inches long (47 cm) with a 1 ½ inch pendant drop.

    • Whether this necklace is twisted or left as a casual jumble of strands, it makes a wonderful effect. It looks terrific with black, navy. And of course anything floral or white it suits like a trick.  Even a white T-shirt suddenly becomes something special.
    • Each of the 7 strands is different in pattern or elements.  All of the stones are natural and the pearls are baroque, natural, cultured, freshwater pearls.
    • One strand has large rice grain pearls (6 mm) interspersed with aventurine green beads (6 mm) and  a citrine nugget (9mm) in between.
    • Second strand has white button pearls (5mm) next to taupe coloured keshi pearls (6mm), next to peridot beads (5.5 mm), followed by citrine nuggets (7.5 mm), next to lime jasper beads (6 mm) and finally green aventurine beads (6mm).
    • Third strand consists of button pearls (5mm), citrine nuggets (7 mm), aventurine beads (6mm) and peridot beads (5.5 mm).
    • Fourth , fifth, sixth and seventh carry on in a similar manner but the pattern always changes.
    • I have used a vermeil toggle clasp.  Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • The necklace is 19 inches (48.5 cm) if it is untwisted and 18 ¼ inches if twisted (47 cm).

    • This is a shock of white, like a blast of snow.  There are three strands of these natural, large white, baroque, “flat” freshwater pearls. They are a brilliant, natural white, full of lustre.   But rather than making the necklace overwhelming, I chose to use two smaller strands and one quite large strand of these pearls.  These are not common baroque pearls.  It is very difficult to find this size, shape and lustre.
    • The large pearls clearly vary in size and shape, but roughly they are 1¼ inches across (3 cm) and 1 inch wide (2.5 cm) with a depth of 11.5 mm.  These are interspersed with brushed 14K gold on silver wave discs (12 mm).
    • The two strands consist of approximately 1 inch across (2.5 cm) and a ¼ inch wide and a depth of 9 mm.
    • I have used a vermeil toggle clasp.  Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • The necklace is 17 ¾ inches long (45 cm)

    • Three Strands of Large, Golden, Cultured Keshi Pearls
    • This is three strands of heaven. It's striking. It's fun. It's edgy.  And it's a necklace that creates an almost ruff-like effect on the neck, like a ruffled scarf neatly wrapped around the neck. Keshi pearls are chic and yet they are not very formal. This very striking necklace creates an almost ruff effect on the neck. Keshi pearls are chic and yet they are not very formal.
    • These are cultured, freshwater Keshi pearls in two tones. Two strands are a tawny colour and the third is a brilliant gold. The tawny coloured pearls, each individually, and naturally shaped, are 18mm. The golden pearls are almost a “Biwa” or stick shape, although still of a Keshi nature. These are much larger, at 36 mm.
    • These pearls are dyed in colour, but are quite natural in appearance.
    • Dyed pearls, which most pearls are, come about through a number of techniques.

As long as you don't spray perfume or hairspray onto the pearls, the colour remains. None of my pearls have faded.
    • Keshi pearls are created by placing a minute piece of natural mother of pearl into a mussel and allowing it to grow to a certain size, as the mussel creates nacre around the irritating foreign element. After a period of time, the pearl is removed and place in. another host mussel, and as it grows, it creates this cornflake type shape. Because this process is quite labour intensive, it makes Keshi pearls more costly than the ordinary freshwater pearls.
    • The three strands feed into two vintage, handmade 18K gold on silver on hardened resin beads (14.7 mm) from Afghanistan. These beads are made in the traditional way, based on ancient techniques.
    • A vermeil toggle clasp has been used because toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with its own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • Length 45 cm.

    £450.00

    • This stunning three strand necklace of lime green cultured, freshwater Keshi pearls (10mm) works a treat with a t-shirt or a cocktail dress.  And because of the ruffled, corn flake-like shape of the keshi pearls, with three strands, the necklace works like a ruff.  Edgy and chic at the same time.
    • But of course the pearls are dyed.  Mother nature does not produce lime green pearls.  However, here’s the thing about dyed pearls. As long as you don’t spray perfume or hairspray onto the pearls, the colour remains.  None of my pearls have ever faded.

    • The necklace is 18 inches long (46 cm).
