The Pearl Necklace

Prized for their beauty since ancient times, pearls possess a mesmerizing luster and natural glow. In the Roman Empire, pearls represented social status and wealth, and Cleopatra is said to have owned beautiful gems. In Greek mythology, Aphrodite, the goddess of love, was born from the sea. When she emerged, the droplets of water on her body became pearls.

Pearl necklaces come in a variety of styles. The pearl choker measures between 16 and 18 inches in length while pearl necklaces between 17 and 19 inches are princess necklaces. Those from 20 to 24 inches are known as matinee style, and the opera pearl necklace varies from 28 to 32 inches in length.

Novica's pearl necklace collection features works from talented artisans and jewelers around the world. From the classic pearl strand to beaded necklaces, pearls go everywhere with refinement and style. Pearl hemispheres appear in flower earrings and pearl rings. Naturally, you'll find pearl bracelets, rings and earrings to complement them, all designed and crafted by hand.
