A sumptuous, 18ct white gold and diamond, natural pearl, three strand necklace from the Victorian period. Three rows of gleaming certified, graduated natural pearls display a desirable, rich, creamy pink lustre. These beautiful pearls graduate in size from 2.6-5.4mm, with the largest examples forming a stunning focal point as they catch the eye sitting at the centre of the neck. A statement clasp features a central large pearl that has been surrounded by eight, sparkling, old cut diamonds (1.05ct). Pearls were much favoured during the Victorian period, as this gemstone from the sea was viewed as a sign of purity and started to be worn by brides on their wedding day. Natural pearls were incredibly sought after during this period, as they were plucked from the depths of the dangerous Persian Gulf by only the bravest of divers. The largest and most lustrous examples of natural pearls were worth far more than diamonds, and were worn with pride by royalty and the aristocracy. This luxurious, three-strand example would have instantly conveyed wealth and status when worn by a wealthy Victorian lady. Pearls have been regularly worn by female members of the royal family since Victorian times. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has an extensive collection of strands, which are regularly worn during daytime official engagements.
Sought after and collected today, this natural pearl strand will make a fantastic addition to a jewellery collection. Worn singly, or layered with other necklaces or pendants, it is a hugely versatile piece.
