Sorry I'm sold

The pearls are cultured or grown inside oysters with a little help from man. These are graduated on the string being up to 8 mm at the front down to 4mm at the back of the neck.
The longest strand is going to hang at about 20 inches or 52 cms.
The clasp is made of solid nine carat gold and is studded with six further pearls and 7 real rubies. The pearls are individually knotted onto the necklace which is usually considered to be the best way to wear them.
