Estate 14K Pearl Station Necklace
In the Jewelry Trade it's largely acknowledged that Elsa Peretti created the first "Station Necklace" while working for Tiffany in 1974. It is called a Station Necklace because each element is positioned and fixed at a particular "Station" on the Necklace. While popular at Tiffany's, the Station Necklace in Pearls really caught on after being worn by Rene Russo in the 1996 movie, Tin Cup. It has been a hugely popular item and virtually required in any collection of fine jewelry since.
This is a lovely Pearl Station necklace in 14K Gold. There are 11 Pearls each measuring approximately 6.5mm. The Pearls are fixed in their position by a Loop-and-Twist or Loop-and-Wrap style where a gold wire is run through the Pearl, looped, and twisted back onto itself to secure it. To us, it's a hallmark of a well made piece of jewelry.
The necklace is marked RCI which is Royal Chain Incorporated. RCI is a purveyor of fine jewelry to the trade, and are well known and respected for their workmanship. A known quantity, this is a necklace that will not disappoint. The necklace has a weight of 4.5 grams and is 16.5 inches in length.
