This Gold Vermeil Branch and Pearl Necklace evokes pearls curated in our National Gem Collection at our National Museum of Natural History. One of the greatest collections of its kind, the National Gem and Mineral Collection includes over 375,000 individual specimens and such treasured pearl jewelry as the Van Buren Pearls, the Dunn Pearls, and the South Sea Glow Pearl Necklace.
16"l. with 2"l. drop and 3"l. extender and lobster clasp.
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.
