    I reckon akoya-the clasp on the pearls is just divine.

    Photos of second strand are too blurry for me to tell anything about the pearls, pretty clasp though!

    some more pictures here.what do you think?

    from seller:
    Double Strand Pearl Necklace with White Gold & Sapphire Catch

    The white pearls are 6.5mm on average. Each strand is hand-knotted between each pearl, so if you break the strand, you won't lose all of the pearls. The catch is 3/4" in diameter with 7 blue sapphires in the center. The tongue of the catch is stamped with the 14K gold mark. The necklace is 15" long and weighs 47.0 grams.

    Whatever they are, they don't seem to have much luster, reflection, compared with the first strand you showed. Have you seen these in person?

    Did you buy them? If so, try the tooth test. Not fool proof, but I haven't found many man-made that pass it.
