A simple and classic necklace featuring a single semi-round ivory cream freshwater pearl. Set on a 14k yellow gold filled headpin and dangling from a 14k yellow gold filled chain, it makes an elegant statement whether worn casual or dressed up.
The color of pearls can be difficult to describe as they often show different tones and overtones in various lighting settings. The pearls used for this design have a body color of creamy ivory with very subtle golden pink overtones.
Pearls have been photographed in both indoor and outdoor light, at various angles and light directions to attempt to accurately portray their color and tones.
This necklace is made to order, the one in the photos is sold and yours will be created just for you.

ABOUT GOLD FILLED JEWELRY
Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of gold, which must constitute at least 5% (1/20) of the item’s total weight, mechanically bonded to sterling silver or a base metal (such as jeweler’s brass). Gold-filled items are 5 to 10 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 15 to 25 times thicker than gold electroplate, making it much more valuable and longer lasting because gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film as on plated jewelry which is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Most gold-filled is 12kt or 14kt gold-filled (I use 14kt for my pieces). Gold-filled does not de-laminate or peel like plated or “dipped” products. It is tarnish resistant and does not tarnish as readily as silver. Many find that they never have to clean gold-filled items at all. However, from time to time your jewelry may become dirty from everyday wear. To clean gold-filled it is best to use mild soap and water.
