I don't know which is more striking - the color or the shape of these cross-shaped freshwater pearls. They are diagonally drilled so when strung they nestle together into an extraordinary textural shape. These cross pearls make up the front section of the necklace and are finished with oval freshwater pearls in the same vibrant color. The necklace closes with a sterling silver toggle clasp, finished with a bezel set pale pink freshwater pearl. Wear it over white - or black, navy, gray - it will POP off of any neutral color!
