We've taken the classic pearl pendant necklace and taken it up a notch with this 11-12mm black cultured Tahitian pearl dropped from a swirl of sterling and accented with a sparkling diamond accent. Fashioned on multi-strands of cable chain with a lobster clasp. Sterling silver necklace. Tahitian or South Sea pearls are unique and may vary.

STERLING SILVER: Also known as "Standard Silver," sterling silver is silver alloyed with other metals to increase the hardness and durability. Generally, sterling is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Some sterling silver jewelry is plated with 14kt-18kt gold and referred to as "vermeil," or "gold over sterling."
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
CABLE: One of the most popular and classic of chain styles, created from interlocking oval links unvarying in size.
LOBSTER CLASP: named after the pinching style of the hook, this clasp is often shaped like a lobster's claw. Use your finger to work the lever to open the clasp.
Cultured Tahitian Pearl

Lovely wearable piece
I am very pleased with this piece. It looks more expensive than it was and goes well with winter grey and charcoal colour ways. The length is good the piece is visible above v necks and shirts. The chain is very delicate but nice and light catching. The pearl looks well on black cord or thicker chain as an alternative. The chain is not easy to secure. If you suffer from arthritis or other, this may be too difficult to operate. The pearl itself has good lustre and the tiny diamond makes a nice accent. The size of the pearl works well with the size of the bale it doesn't overwhelm it. The piece looks balanced.
