i think i've figured it out. there are three different parts that thread in, around and over the pearls. A thick, flexible string or wire in the middle, a tulle or sheer ribbon overlay and a thin black ribbon that ties in between each pearl and hold everything together.

no i don't think it's as complex as that. i think it's just the tulle in between each pearl not a thin black ribbon. the tulle just looks like that because it's been twisted or pulled tightly.

They're soo nice

245$ isn't that bad, considering how much Chanel charges for plastic casette-style earrings, necklaces and clutches (or whatever that purse thing is supposed to carry)

I think they are very pretty, but I am unclear about what they actully are made of. The description at lanvin.com says the pearls are "wrapped in black velvet". I though they were wrpped in silk? tulle? If anyone who owns a stand could clarify that would be great- I can't see enough detail in the pic- thanks-

That's what I was thinking, it looks like the pearls have been threaded with a piece of tulle. I've seen some necklaces around which have been threaded with a thin piece of ribbon, it looked really pretty too.

I absolutely adore these pearls!
They are just gorgeous. I would pay that much for them if I had the money.
