Black is one of the rarest colors in pearls and one of the most beautiful. This set is beautifully packaged in a gift box with magnetic flip top as shown. The necklace is 18 inches long, is knotted on silk and has a sterling silver lobster claw clasp. The matching earrings have a post pierced sterling silver setting with a single Austrian Crystal accent. The earrings are 1/2 inch long and the pearls measure 5mm. As with all freshwater pearls, the individual pearls are not perfectly round, but rather have a more natural shape.
