|This Mikimoto 18K yellow gold necklace comes with the original Mikimoto snake chain and a cultured pearl and 18K pendant. The chain is a generous 18" long. The pendant is 5/8" long with an 8 mm pearl and three small diamonds set on the front of the bail. Both the necklace and pendant are marked 750 for 18K, and the pendant is stamped with the M mark for Mikimoto. It is Mikimoto who invented the process for growing cultured pearls at the beginning of the 20th century. Both pieces were purchased together at Mikimoto, where the original retail price was about $4400. The condition is excellent.|
