Nino Tagliamonte recently looked in his safe and pulled out a bag filled with lovely, extra large, 13-15mm freshwater cultured Pearls that he had purchased years ago from a far east Asian pearl merchant. He bought them at a special price and is passing the savings onto a lucky customer. The pearls are off round, off white in color and seem to exude life. Being so large, each pearl has remained growing in the oyster for many, many years. By remaining in the oyster for so long, they have developed a thicker nacre and exude a greater luster than the average pearl and are much more valuable. Look at the pictures carefully, there are some striations and imperfections, but their size, their luster and color combined with the gorgeous sterling silver endcaps is really quite beautiful.
The necklace has an adjustable extender chain with a Makers mark that has a silver and lapis bee on it. You will feel like "La Principessa" whenever you wear this beauties!
"Bees are a symbol of wealth, good luck and prosperity since Ancient times. Charms in the shape of a honey bee are said to be good luck for attracting wealth. The same goes for coins with a honey bee symbol. Myth says these charms and coins are lucky for success in life."
