$83.00

Our original La Mere de la Perle necklace is a perennial customer favorite so we decided to re-create it using hand-dyed pearls in vivid shades of sky and lapis blue with some white pearl accents. 

The vintage pearl buttons were hand-carved from Mississippi River mussel shells by the American Pearl Button Company of Washington which operated between 1908 and 1964.

We lovingly hand-dyed the pearls on the stovetop in our Louisiana design studio.

In this piece:

  • Fourteen vintage, hand-dyed mother-of-pearl buttons, manufactured between 1908 & 1964
  • Four brass filigree stampings made in the USA in vintage dies
  • Two tiny Austrian crystals
  • Three styles of antiqued brass chain
  • Length is 16" with a 4" extender
