This Japan Kasumi-ga-Ura necklace shows distinctive circling (aka banding). Though not widely desired, this constitutes an interesting surface phenomenon, which occurs in every pearl cultivation, freshwater and ocean, but remains unexplained.
Graduated 10-14.5 mm, the 16 1/2 inch (42cm) long strand weighs 79 grams. Collected over a period of 15 years, it is a well-matched strand, given the overall scarcity of Japan Kasumi freshwater baroque pearls since the 1980's. Finished with a silver clasp brushed vermeille surface.P10008-01
