This pearl strand typically begins with an inch of pearls held on a gold plated or sterling silver clasped chain which eventually becomes a complete strand of strung and knotted luminous pearls which will be treasured for a lifetime.


Our Add-An-Inch Pearls are of the finest quality AAA high-luster rosea pearls. The pearl necklaces are strung together with silk thread that is knotted at the end then ties to the ends of a chain. Once a strand is the desired length the complete collection are hand strung and knotted with the choice of a 14K white or yellow gold clasp. This final completion step is provided at no additional cost to the purchaser.

Options are provided for pearl sizes from 3mm to 7.5mm and priced accordingly.
