    Default Strand of pink pearls- beautiful but I don't specifically know nothing about pearls

    Hopefully, I've posted this question correctly. It's my first time here.

    My mom bought a storage unit at auction, don't ever do that btw, and she found this strand of pearls inside it. I say don't buy a storage unit because it's a lot of work. It was also kinda fun treasure hunt.

    Back to the pearls... There are 68 pearls in total. I rubbed one on the front of my tooth to test. It wasn't smooth like I read fake pearls feel. I did it lightly but it felt more like a rock than a marble.

    I'm figuring out how to post multiple pics right now. Thank you to anyone that reads this. I appreciate any knowledge you share about pearls very much. I know it's difficult without seeing them in person.

    They look like Chinese freshwater cultured pearls. Blemishes, yes, but great luster!

    So we were eating clams and my husband found this tiny little pearl. Any idea what it would be worth? I just think it is soooo cool, that we found it? How rare is this to find one when eating dinner???
