Not a post about my pearls (although I did wear my Tahitian keshi) but my husband and I took a drive to Greenwich today and stopped in (as we always do ) at Stephen Fox Jewelry
on Lewis St., which is right off the main drag of Greenwich Avenue where all the shops are.
I always like to see the pearls this jeweler carries.
The standout today was a natural
16" graduated strand of white pearls dating back to 1925, which I had seen previously in the case but mistook for a graduated akoya "momme" strand. It was in very good condition and the clasp was studded with diamonds. I believe that is the first strand of natural white pearls I have seen in person.
Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me and can't upload from my flip phone camera. But this shop is worth stopping into if you are in Greenwich and love seeing really nice pearls. There was also a long 3-strand necklace of assorted color pearls (FW, Tahitian and GSS), 2 long white keshi necklaces from Japan, a very long (100"?) Tahitian keshi necklace and a beautiful piece with natural river pearls from Mississippi. Just delightful!
