Pearl Necklace with Jade Cape Closure

Countless references have been made to pearls and their symbolism in world religion and culture.  In China, dragons are thought to keep guard over pearls at the bottom of the sea, and in ancient times, pearls were observed to ‘change’ with the phases of the Moon, along with other aquatic creatures.  Pearls are a long standing symbol of beauty and purity and are the perfect addition to any lady’s jewelry collection.  These strands of fresh water black pearls are bound with a carved jade cape closure.
