The item is a 14 k white gold add a cultured salt water pearl necklace. The necklace has 5 , 5 1/2 millimeter round pearls that are strung onto and attached to a 14 k white gold 16 inch long chain. The chain has a spring ring catch. The pearls are top quality. They have a high luster and they have a rose color tone. The pearls have very few blemishes. The pearls are knotted in between. You can wear this necklace as is or you can buy more pearls in the future and keep adding to the necklace until its a complete strand. Usually this is bought for young girls and every birthday or holiday people keep buying 1 or more pearls and have them strung onto the chain and by the time she is 16 or 18 years old it will be complete. I have pictures of the current price list for the carded pearls. If you want to order carded pearls just email me and I will create a listing for them. You can not add the pearls onto the chain yourself they have to be strung on by a pearl stringer. We like to have a few inches before we string them on for you at no charge. I will provide the pendant box.
