Hand knotted silken cords carry 158 ivory cream-colored Czech glass hand-painted pearls. The rhodium-plated art deco clasp, with 14 Austrian Swarovski crystals, speaks of the elegance of times past. Presented in a beautiful steel case covered in soft velour and satin. Inner length is 17 inches, outer length is 20 inches.
Jacqueline Kennedy had many sets of pearls, but this was the one she wore and enjoyed the most. It is believed that she inherited it from her mother. Jackie was a fan of designer Coco Chanel, who had designed this style of pearls where the three lengths are not uniformly set. The inner string has a larger space than between the two lower strings, so she could pull the lower string up and over the upper string for a more sophisticated look. Chanel also believed the clasp is an integral part of a necklace’s design and should be worn where it could be seen. On this versatile necklace, the three strands will strike off in different turns for a unique look.
