This Dancing Coin Freshwater 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, the Dunn Pearl Necklace, and the Picasso Kunzite Necklace, beaded with 30 South Sea baroque pearls.
18"l. with 2"l. extender.
The only gemstones made by living creatures, rare NATURAL PEARLS are produced by mollusks who layer calcium carbonate around a microscopic irritant. Most pearls used commercially 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 wear this to accent a high round neck on a dress or sweater; it will look equally good with trousers and a fitted top. You can wear it in the evening too. Overall fabulous necklace! I liked it so much I bought two: one for me and one for a friend."

"This and a silk jacket ordered at the same time made wonderful Christmas presents -- and will be worn together on New Year's Eve, as well as to a concert two nights later. Strikingly lovely pearls, and lots of them, too! I'm really glad I bought them!"
