If you are thinking of purchasing a double strand of cultured pearls, American
Pearl now offers you the TWIN CLASP. Each pearl necklace will be strung on
its own designer clasp as shown in the adjoining clasps photograph above.
Should she decide to wear only one necklace at a time, she simply unclasps one
half of this TWIN CLASP (which triggers a mechanism) which allows the parts to
slide out from each otheróseparating into two unique clasps. In order for the
inside pearl necklace to nest perfectly inside the outer necklace, there will
always be a difference of one inch between the lengths of the two necklaces.
For example, you may choose to purchase a 16 inch and 17 inch double strand
necklace which would total 33 inches of pearls. Her options for wear would be
a single 16 inch necklace, a single 17 inch necklace, a double strand 16 inch
and 17 inch necklace or a 33 inch opera (achieved by connecting the plunger
part of one clasp into the receiving end of the other clasp. If versatility
is her goal, nothing is more practical than the TWIN CLASP.
