Sharon Harper Designs


$155.00

Simply elegant 1960s Kenneth Jay Lane multi layered pearls in cream, taupe and gold with slim gold hidden bars to hold the pearls perfectly in place. The pendant features a bee 🐝 on one side and an aristocratic, old-world crown and laurel leaf on the other side. The pendant is pewter and finished in 12 karat gold and then antiqued. It is a newer piece that I knew would be a fantastic addition to this classic and timeless look. The pearl necklace it’s reversible so both pendant sides can be worn.
