Brides, if you are looking for a simple, elegant and understated look for your wedding day, this handmade necklace is perfect. It's traditional in that it has white pearls, yet at the same time it has just a little bit of bling! The pearls are genuine cultured pearls, and the bling is in the form of a sprinkling of Swarovski crystals. I added a hand forged clasp and pretty extender chain, both of sterling silver. For a finishing touch, I added a little larger crystal on both the clasp and the extender.

The genuine cultured freshwater pearls are not very large -- about 5 mm in diameter. They are white, not quite round, but have a very nice luster. I have sprinkled in a few Swarovski AB xillion (extra sparkly) crystals. Every bride should have a little bit of sparkle!

I hand forged the clasp out of .925 sterling wire, and hammered it to harden it, but also to give it a nice texture. It is a hook type clasp, but it is shaped into a beautiful swirling curve. It also has a single Swarovski bicone crystal to match those in the rest of the necklace.

The 2" extender chain is what's called a figure eight (8) style. It is also made out of .925 sterling silver. This is my favorite chain to design with because I think it is just beautiful. The twists in the eights catch and reflect the light. I also added a matching crystal at the end of the chain for a little extra sparkle as it dangles down your back.

This necklace is 17 1/2 inches (almost 44 cm) long but can extend 2 additional inches (5 cm) so you can adjust it to the perfect length for the neckline of your dress. It is strung on Beadalon 49, so it is very strong and will last for years to come.

Since there's not too much bling, this necklace is versatile enough that you will be able to wear it for other occasions after your wedding is over. But since it is your wedding, don't you want the elegance of real pearls? I know I would.

I also made earrings to go with this necklace -- using the same pearls, crystals, and same style chain. Here is the link if you would like to see it: http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/4729536

This necklace comes with a little silk/satin bag to keep it in.
