This is my own Tahitian keishi necklace. Now broken up for the pearls as I hated the necklace itself. Horrible gold plated beads and threaded on wire. How cruel to pearls. One of the pearls is totally wrecked due to the goldplated beads cutting into it. The rest survived although a couple had minor damage not necessarily caused by the wire or beads but by lousy packing and drilling.
The pearls look much better loose in a box than they do on this Yuck necklace though. Have just taken a photo of them loose with a few others. In second photo. The 3 in the middle were the ones I considered damaged. My photos are lousy though and the pearls look better in real life than in the photo. Sorry.
I think some of them are very nice though and the best will go into my small but growing collection for a necklace one day.
