Pearls necklaces can be dated back to 3000 years ago as the earliest pearl necklace was found on an ancient Egyptian mummy bride.
Pearl necklace used to be a privilege reserved to royal families and celebrities alike; however with today's advanced technology of cultivating pearls with mass scale, a cultured pearl necklace becomes completely affordable to you and me. Also with today's technology, the cultured pearl quality is better than ever, with high luster, perfect round shape and very large sizes available at affordable prices.
A cultured pearl necklace is a Must-Have piece of jewellery in every woman's wardrobe, as the fashion guru, Nina Ricci's previous directrice Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariaux said, "no matter how rich or poor you are, you shall always have a strand of cultured pearl necklace in your jewellery box, and that will go with every formal outfit". When we talk about a cultured pearl necklace, people would easily think about one strand, two strands or triple strand white pearl necklace, like the queen's necklace. Contrarily to this perception, today's cultured pearl necklace can be as diversified as you imagine, especially with so many beautiful natural colours offered by cultured fresh water pearls, so many shapes and sizes, cultured pearl necklace can have many forms and colours.
