Luxurious 6-strand freshwater, natural pearl vintage necklace made of rice pearls. They have a crinkled surface and are more interesting than the new freshwater rice pearls of today. These freshwater pearls were created in Japan. The more enhanced the pearls, the more desirable they were. The freshwater beauties really glow with pastel colors. Each rice shaped pearl is about 3-5 mm or 4-6 mm. The necklace is in excellent condition with a gold tone clasp that works beautifully. The clasp could be vermeil but I’m not sure so I’m listing as gold tone.
Approximately 18” long.
