    A one strand pearl necklace featuring gold pearls and jade tube gemstones.

    This collection has been designed exclusively for the British Museum by Caroline Haelterman from the Real Pearl Company. Extensively researching ancient Roman gemstone jewellery, the range has been inspired by the intricate jewellery discovered by archaeologists. Jade, as featured here, was a symbol of wealth and status to ancient Romans.

    The pearls used here are of the freshwater cultured variety. The beads are hand knotted on silk thread with a steel magnetic ball clasp for closure. The matching earrings to this necklace are also available to purchase.
