Large gray shell pearl statement necklace with big 12mm pearls. Soft gray colored south sea shell beads make up this stunning wedding necklace. The luster on these pearls are exceptional. I used 10mm silver rhinestone rondelles in between each pearl to give extra highlight them. The length on this rhinestone choker is 16 3/4 inches with a 3 inches silver plated extension chain. Perfect for the bride or mother of the bride, very elegant for evening wear.

Shell pearls are pearls made by crushing shells and producing perfect pearl shaped beads. These beads are then dipped in a solution containing ground iridescent fish scales or real pearl powder which coats them in a lustrous finish that is almost indiscernible from real pearls. Originally they were manufactured in an attempt to imitate the highly sought after and incredibly expensive South Sea or Tahitian pearls grown in the Pinctada Maxima Oyster. These are found around the coast of Australia and the tip of Burma and through the Philippines and Indonesia.
