RUTHERFORD | ANTIQUE TO CONTEMPORARY PEARL JEWELLERY

Rutherford

An Impressive Pearl Bangle!

At the turn of the last Century pearls were incredibly rare and reserved for the fortunate few. With advances in technology and the growth of the industry, particularly in the remote parts of Western Australia we are now enjoying the finest quality pearls of any age. Large, clean, pure white pearls with a high lustre like this one are now accessible to a much wider audience. With nearly one and a half carats of diamonds this bangle is outstanding. Available in Melbourne’s first Pearl Specialist store on Collins St.
