I created this beautiful dainty necklace using tiny (2mm) freshwater pearls and coral beads of excellent quality and sterling silver beads, chain and closure. Ideal for everyday use, as well as layering with other necklaces.
The length of the necklace is adjustable 33-37cm and it is also available with golden plated sterling silver chain and closure, as well as a solid gold K14 one.

Halimede was one of the Nereids. In Greek mythology, the Nereids or Nereides are sea nymphs (female spirits of sea waters), the 50 daughters of the 'Old Man of the Sea' Nereus and the Oceanid Doris, sisters to their brother Nerites. They often accompany Poseidon, the god of the sea, and can be friendly and helpful to sailors (such as the Argonauts in their search for the Golden Fleece). The Nereids symbolized everything that is beautiful and kind about the sea. Their melodious voices sang as they danced around their father. They are represented as beautiful women, crowned with branches of red coral and dressed in white silk robes trimmed with gold. These nymphs are particularly associated with the Aegean Sea, where they dwelt with their father Nereus in the depths within a golden palace.
