This Bronze Pearl Necklace recalls pearl jewelry pieces in our National Gem and Mineral Collection housed in our National Museum of Natural History. One of the greatest collections of its kind, its over 375,000 individual specimens include pearl treasures such as the Van Buren Pearls and the Dunn Pearl Necklace.
18"l. with 0.5"l. pendant.
The only gemstones made by living creatures, rare NATURAL PEARLS are produced by mollusks who layer calcium carbonate around a microscopic irritant. Most pearls today are FRESHWATER PEARLS, cultured or farmed by implanting a grafted piece of shell into freshwater pearl mussels. SHELL PEARLS, also known as simulated or replica pearls are made from mother-of-pearl. Pearl is the birthstone for June.

"I really liked this necklace. However, it stretches over your head and two of the strands have already snapped. There is no way to reconnect them. This is very disappointing!"
