I inherited some jewelry (some real, some costume) when my Mother passed away 9 years ago. In that was a velvet box from L.H. Riley Jeweler in Corning, NY which said LaTausca Pearls (a trademark). Apparently the jeweler is out of business and I get nothing when I try to find out about the LaTausca Pearls. The string is broken and I wanted to have them restrung if they are real.
The reason for my request now is that my niece is getting married and I wanted to have the pearls strung into a necklace and a bracelet if they are good pearls. I am reluctant to go to just any jewelry store as I don't have the confidence that they will know what they are talking about.
