About

The Real Pearl Necklace Pearl Choker

Beautiful white pearl choker necklace by The Real Pearl Company with ornate pearl clasp as shown above.

Based on the simple pearl choker style necklace worn by Susanna Hamilton, Countess of Cassillis, 1632 - 1694. First wife of the 7th Earl of Cassilis by John Michael Wright. Shown in third image.

About the Painting

Susanna Hamilton was the daughter of the 1st Duke of Hamilton, King Charles I's principal Scottish adviser. She spent her childhood at her father's house in Chelsea, surround by his great collection of paintings by Rubens, Correggio and Van Dyck. Wright's sensitive portrait shows Susanna Hamilton at thirty, and suggests character and intelligence rather than flattering her appearance. Five years later, she married the nineteen-year-old Earl of Cassillis.
