Stunning 14K Gold & Pearl Twist Design Necklace
Regular price $1,396.80
Presented is a stunning 14 karat gold and pearl necklace. This piece dates to around the 1960s and is likely of American make. The necklace has a very visually appealing design, with 14 pearls caged in twisted gold wire links. Between the ropetwist and wire twist links are ribbed gold beads. The pearls in the tighter gold wire links are held fast, while the pearls in the rope twist cages move back and forth freely. This piece is in great overall condition. The pearls have some surface blemishes, but nothing severe. There are no breaks and no repairs. This piece is stamped 14k on both the clasp and the link connecting the clasp to the necklace. The necklace is about 15 inches long. This piece weighs 24.8 grams. Considering the light weight of the 14 pearls, the majority of this weight is 14 karat gold. We estimate that 21-22 grams of the total weight is 14 karat gold.
