This dramatic strand of iridescent, dark pearls in shades ranging from copper to gunmetal to burgundy is inspired by the gem’s mythic origins.


One strand, hand-strung in China. No clasp. 56"L.

                            Unfortunately, the colour of the pearls is almost black on top of the fact that the shape is so rough that make it look like a string of little stones. Don't think that it's worth that money and wish that Nat Geo had paid attention to quality control on what it is selling. Very disappointing not just with the product but with Nat Geo Shop as well.

                            The construction seems durable, but the colors are quite drab in comparison to the strand in the catalog.

These sweeping, baroque-style necklace is handcrafted in Italy using brass and freshwater pearls in a style inspired by Renaissance portraits found in the famous Uffizi Gallery, once headquarters of the Medici dynasty.

                                  Through the 1700s, the main industry in the seaside town of Torre del Greco had been harvesting coral, or "red gold." When the ruins of nearby Pompeii were excavated, it became a must-see destination with England's elite. Cameos made from the shells harvested by local fishermen were one of the most popular souvenirs to show off one's well-traveled status. This romantic necklace pairs a rustic, hand-carved cameo portrait with a string of cultured pearls.

                                  Pearls hold an important place in the mythology and folklore of cultures across the world and throughout time. For the Chinese, they were the tears of dragons fighting in the sky. For Buddhists, pearls are the jewel in the lotus, which grants all desires. This gleaming strand of pearls in shades of pink, gold, lavender, and white can be worn as long necklace or doubled.

Uncovered from ancient Roman archaeological sites in modern-day Israel, each fragment has been textured and colored by centuries of wind and weather. Each bear the marks of not only its past life as a household or temple object but also the very earth in which it rested until being transformed into a unique accent. Each piece of Roman glass is framed by a sterling silver bezel and dotted with tiny freshwater pearls.

                                  In the heart of Dublin, designers at a family-owned jewelry studio draw on the backdrop of their ancient city, founded in the 8th century, to create classic designs that incorporate classic Celtic motifs. These sterling silver and freshwater pearl accents feature a classic Celtic trinity knot, also called the triquetra. Found in ancient Celtic texts like the Book of Kells, it has also become a symbol of the Christian holy trinity. In Celtic tradition, it symbolizes strength and unity—the knot itself has no beginning or end. It can represent past, present, and future, or the stages of a woman's life according to Celtic lore: young woman, mother, and grandmother.

                                  Jasper, a form of chalcedony, has been used since ancient times for everything from arrow tips to official carved seals to snuff bottles that were highly collectible in 19th- and early-20th-century China. This triple strand of green, reddish, and brown jasper beads is interrupted throughout by pearls, and is inspired by the beaded necklaces that were popular in the Mandarin court of the late 17th century.

                                  Roman emperors commissioned thousands of different designs and denominations of coins and people from Britain to Spain to Syria still turn up Roman coins while plowing their fields and digging in their gardens. For collectors, there's nothing more satisfying than pinpointing when an ancient bronze coin was first minted. The reproduction coins in our multistrand necklace depict an emperor on horseback under the words OPTIMO PRINCIPI, Latin for "highest prince." Several emperors used this title, but it's most often found on coins minted by the first-century emperor Trajan.

                                  Charleston, South Carolina, is a veritable outdoor ironwork museum, with its pedestrian-friendly streets and a tradition of cast-iron and wrought-iron gates, fences, and balconies that date back to the early 18th century. British styles were the earliest to take hold in the city, but a local style soon evolved and gained national attention, with elements that were influenced by German ironworkers and the neoclassical design that was popular in architecture of the 19th century.
