This feminine Blossoms and Pearls Necklace by Katherine Kornblau elegantly pairs cultured peacock pearls with glass blossoms and buds, each meticulously hand-sculpted in the lampwork tradition. Silver-plated findings. Handmade in the U.S.A. Natural pearl variations will occur.
Utterly romantic this Blossoms and Pearls Necklace echoes floral jewelry in the costume collection at our National Museum of American History, Behring Center, which curates more than 30,000 garments and accessories.
17"l. with 2"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.

"The Peacock Pearls really complement so well with the glass blossoms and blue buds that are each articulately hand-sculpted in the lamp work tradition. The blossoms in the round beads look two-dimensional! It's so feminine, and such a beautiful piece. You can wear it either with casual wear or formal wear. I really love it! I will be wearing it a lot!"
