Mikimoto 8mm Golden Akoya Pearl Necklace 17" Strand Estate Fine Jewelry

$20,679.00

Overview:

Elegant Mikimoto cultured Akoya pearl necklace finished with a 18k yellow gold clasp (circa 2003).

8mm cultured Akoya pearls are individually knotted. The pearls are lustrous and show a glossy golden champagne hue.

The necklace was created in 2003 as a special anniversary edition to celebrate 110 years of Mikimoto (1893-2003). The special edition strand is a testament to Mikimoto craftsmanship. The pearls were produced with a piece of a golden South Sea pearl shell impregnated into an Akoya pearl to produce the special golden hued Akoya pearls. The entire process to produce the special pearls took a total of 10 years, with only one 8mm strand produced (this one!). Mikimoto planned to produce enough pearls to make 110 strands for the 110 year anniversary, yet only 50 strands were actually made. The necklace is a rare limited edition strand with the most beautiful lustrous pearls exhibiting a glossy golden hue. Measuring 17 inches the necklace is designed to sit at or just below the nape of the neck.

The necklace is in very good condition.
