Thread: My akoyas

    Default My akoyas

    Hi everyone,
    I will put all my akoyas in same thread, easier for me to remember what I got or still have.
    Recently I found this piece, mainly for the clasp, but the 4 strands look not too bad.
    Still not in hand yet, I hope to see a good jeweller hallmark on it as I have a very nice 50's Cartier necklace case for storage and display.

    Very nice! I love their golden tint too!
    And the clasp...most people don´t get to see it, so the most important would probably be to just have it cleaned up and check for security. It is a very nice strand...very Art Decó as BWeaves mentions it.

    Hope it is, I bought it for the clasp, the diamonds seem enormous.
    I wanted to bid on another strand with a 1cm diamond, but price went too far, especially for cultured pearl strand.

    If it has a 1cm diamond, the price is for the diamond and not the pearls. That would be over 3 carats, if round.

    That clasp is beautiful and a very nice find. I love Deco and Deco-inspired things.

    I'm currently on the hunt for unique and/or vintage clasps and that looks exactly like something I'd love to own. It's beautiful!

    The main pearl is almost 1cm and main diamond about 5,5mm.
