    I think the clasp was actually deliberately chosen. I think it is meant to tie the reinterpreted necklace back with the typical, humdrum pearl necklace. A more unusual clasp would distance it from the starting place.

    If I were to wear it, though, I know exactly what clasp I would want. Interlocking carved pearls, about 30-50% larger than the links.

    It's the "humdrum" clasp that makes it look cheap. An interesting, diamond studded, interlocking loop clasp would have completely changed my impression of the necklace.

    What BWeaves said. That clasp is a dud. I'd be afraid of the glue coming loose and then the chain needing to be repaired at best, lost at worst. Plus using high quality pearls means it's likely expensive. Same thing couldv'e been done with MOP for much less.

    I like those sorts of chains though, especially in bog oak or jet.

    It's a yay for me, depending on the length for wear. Otherwise, it's still a yay for me as an artist's piece. I like the idea behind it.

    Aye from me as I like the artists' concept too. But not sure I'd actually wear it.

    I'm not sure on this... with the current clasp it is a nye. I think if it was decorated a wee bit more and a longer length, I might like it better. At first glance, I thought it was MOP and not real pearl. It does look very delicate, which would be a big turnoff.

    I can appreciate the work and creativity to the piece. I thought it was MOP at first too. As a necklace, the clasp to be exchanged for another that compliments shape of the links. However, if the artist is drawing a link (pardon the pun) to a classic pearl necklace, ie. also being in vintage box, then the clasp may suit the artists vision.
