    Default pearl necklace design evolution between origins and modern times

    As pearl necklaces fashion and styles changed even for well known jewels (josephine necklace as example), I think there has been a evolution for more common jewellry too, but would get more information about it.
    Is there a source for fashion evolution from early XIX to end of XX, even actual period, focused on classical design?
    I would know the average lenght fashion, size and color of pearls, size and style of clasp, and maybe one or several strands, additionnal pendant or other details.

    There are many wonderful books about pearl jewelry, but none that I know of that address the topic and specific time period you have mentioned.

    So I am offering each one who wants to help to share informations about specific design or periods, lets tell, mostly 1850-1950
    This way it could help to recognize a specific design or era, or maybe a wrong seting using innacurate parts.
    I am thinking about it because it makes several times I think I see inaccuracies.
    IF you know some design well, please share!
    Would also be interesting to see if fashion is different depending on countries even I am more thinking about occidental fashio.
