The Perla Large Pearls Necklace is a striking, unique piece with a wonderful story. VIETRI Founder Susan Gravely came across a beautiful mesh and pearl necklace in Milan in 1985. She asked her dear and talented Florentine friend, Tita Bosio, if she might be able to recreate it so that VIETRI could sell something similar. Tita sourced the pearls very easily, but the mesh netting seemed hard to find. She scoured markets and shops to no avail. Not to be deterred, Tita eventually found what she was looking for in an automobile repair shop! She created the bestselling necklaces for VIETRI for many years, and eventually the product was retired. We are delighted to bring the fun, costume jewelry necklaces back, and they are now handmade by Tita's daughter-in-law.

Dishwasher Safe - We recommend using a non-fragrant/non-citrus, non-abrasive detergent on the air dry cycle (or econo heat when available). It is recommended to place the dishes so they avoid touching during the high pressure dishwashing and as such we recommend you do not overload the dishwasher. All dishes should be dried thoroughly before being stored.
