I recently purchased a collection of several hundred pieces of high quality costume jewelry at an estate sale. This necklace was a part of that collection. At the sale, I spoke with the seller who said the jewelry belonged to her mother and that her mother only shopped at locations such as Macys, Nordstroms, QVC, etc. I inquired about the vastness of the collection and was told that the mother never wore most of the pieces and had purchased them as investments.
This necklace is from HONORA. Unclasped, it measures 36 inches long including the clasp. The clasp is marked 925. It is made of freshwater pearls in the colors of Black Cherry, Silver, and Black (although the black looks dark charcoal).
It has never been worn and still has its Honora tag attached. It will come to you in its original satin pouch and gift box, just like the day it was first purchased.
I did find this necklace online currently selling at Macy's for $91.00 plus $16.98 shipping, so roughly $108.00.
Information from Honora:
"Incredible style is apparent in this Honora strand. The colors are Black Cherry, Silver, and Black in this long, luxurious, versatile necklace of ringed, barrel shaped cultured freshwater pearls. This necklace defines your style with always appropriate sophistication.
One necklace many ways to wear it. This ultimate accessory can be worn long and loose, perfect over a basic tee or tunic, or going with the flow of a draped open cardigan. You can also double it for a layered look. It defines your neckline and frames your face beautifully. Find a way to adorn any outfit, from a T-shirt and jeans to the dressiest of ensembles.
Refreshingly different. The ringed barrel design caused by the pearls rotation while growing inside the mollusk, lends irresistible texture. The carved circles range from a single ridge to multiple rings on each cultured freshwater pearl. This inherent variation makes every strand individual, beautiful, and uniquely your own".
Delivery will be from Northern California via USPS 1st Class Mail. Postal Insurance will be mandatory. Since the insurance is for the protection of both of us, I split the cost with the buyer. The delivery charge will be $5.95.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can safely fit into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
