about 15 inches

Thank you. Please tell me about the clasp...14, !8K gold or sterling silver?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
sterling silver with a pearl

Thank you.

Pearl jewelry is not selling for as high of values as in the past. There are many cultured and freshwater pearls available.

Still, Mikimoto pearls are among the finest.Your Mikimoto choker with 3MM pearls and a sterling clasp has an estimated retail value of $650-800 USD or(###) ###-####AUD.

I hope this helps you.

Positive, please.

Kind regards,

Doris
