Please allow me to introduce these lovely dark purple nuclear pearl strand. It is also called nucleus pearls or edison pearls that is widely known. I would grade it to AAA2/AAA- based on the general conditions! The luster of these pearl strand is very high. The surface condition is very good. But it is not perfectly smooth. If you look at these strands very closely and carefully,you will still be able to spot the minor growth textures and very very tiny blemishes. However, the strand is is 97% blemish free. So the surface condition is really satisfactory. The color is not shiny purple. It is more dark purple or pink purple with bronze and green hue. The pearl size is 10-13mm. The length of the strand is 40 cm or so. Please note the listing is loose pearl strand. But we can provide stringing service with amazing toggles available for selection!
