Vintage Marta Howell Mabe Pearl Bezel Set Statement Necklace Sterling Silver
Raw yet refined beauty is epitomized in this stunning Marta Howell pendant necklace. The piece features a mabe pearl (also known as a cultured blister pearl) and its surrounding mother of pearl bed nestled into a tightly fit bezel. The piece has the natural curve of the shell, as seen on the side profile view. It is large- the length including the bail is just over 2 3/4" and it is 1 3/4" across at the widest. Nature has left small imperfections on the front and back as to be expected. The color and orient that the piece shows is remarkable with a creamy base tone and rays of pinks, whites, greens, blues and golds emanating from the pearl. The pictures are taken under bright light with one under less brightness to show the darker tones. The pearl portion measures approximately 14.5mm. The pendant is stamped Marta Howell and 925. The accompanying chain is a snake link and features a C ring clasp. It measures 21".
