A beautiful strand of creamy pearls, 5.5-6mm, has been restrung and knotted on silk cord.

The necklace was created around a silver pendant, dating to the late Georgian period.

The pendant follows a pierced Maltese Cross design, with a central cluster, and has been closed-back set with diamond paste stones of various sizes.

The necklace, which has a sterling silver filigree clasp, is 20” in length. The pendant measures 32mm x 25mm.
