Mikimoto Triple-Strand Pearl Necklace 18K Gold Clasp

A stunning triple-strand necklace of Akoya cultured pearls by Mikimoto finished with an 18K yellow gold clasp. The three strands contain 57, 60 and 64 pearls (total 181) and are 17-1/4”, 17-3/4” and 18” long. The 6.5-7.00 mm pearls are graded as fine AA, with light cream body color and rose overtones. The nacre has medium thickness with bright luster. The matching is excellent, as would be expected of Mikimoto. The box clasp is enhanced with repousse floral decoration and is set with a 4.2 mm pearl. The clasp is fully hallmarked for 18K gold and is signed with Mikimoto’s oyster shell hallmark. The necklace is accompanied by a 2010 independent NAJA appraisal confirming the above information and stating a replacement value of $17,950.

Origin: Japan. Condition: excellent, no pearl damage, secure stringing. Size: 18” long.
