This is a very rare Antique Mississippi Pearl and Seed Pearl Festoon necklace that is in mint condition for being well over 140 years old. This is one of my favourites that is timeless and a classic. As you can see that the necklace has been extended at some point and the pearls are some of my favourites.... You cannot get these Mississippi Pearls anymore...
What do you think of the necklace? I love festoons and collect them .....
UPDATE:
Freshwater mussels in the temperate zone of the Northern Hemisphere have produced pearls of great value, as for example those from the Mississippi River.

    So beautiful - and can imagine it on a woman from 1870's? Can you give us a little history on Mississippi pearls?

    blingiton1948, I have been a jewelry nut since I was 3. I went into my mothers bedroom and ransacked her jewelry ...and tasted them to see if they were candy. LMAO ..they did not and I tossed some into the trash thinking they were bad! :0
