Very Good - One tiny scratch to the surface on one faux pearl. This is only visible upon very close inspection and does not  detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

A Short History...

The popularity of the use of faux pearls within costume jewellery is undeniable. Between the 1920s and 1960s, they were enjoying a heyday, as they made pieces more affordable than rhinestone examples and were acceptable for daywear too. Famous costume jewellery brands, such as Ciro, Chanel and Miriam Haskell, used faux pearls prolifically and many unsigned pieces were made using them to emulate their high end designs. 

Wear it With... 

Modernise these pearls with a plain white t-shirt and indigo jeans. Altrnatively, go for the timeless option and pair them with a strapless, column bridal gown.
