Once rare and reserved for the wealthiest among us, pearls have been cultivated and made more accessible for only the last century. They remain highly valued, particularly when they are as fine as these! This stunning bracelet was crafted in the 1950s with Akoya cultured pearls graded AA-AAA, meaning many of them are considered near perfect 'gem grade'– perfectly round with no visible blemishes and a fine, glossy lustre. They measure about 4 to 4.5 mm and are quite white with a subtle golden-pink lustre. Five strands are held together with two sterling bars and completed with a gorgeous hand-carved sterling silver slide-in clasp. The bracelet measures about 7 inches long and 1 inch wide.
