A customer brought these in today, just to get a feel for their value. The story handed down, from Gran, is that they are Dead Sea pearls, from someone between husbands 1 & 2, and one day when she gets really sloshed, she will divulge all.
My hands were shaking I was so excited to see them. Any ideas? I thought maybe like Caitlin's Bahrainis
I didnt even get to measure them, but the little ones are the barest whisper of nacre around a hole, and the centre ones are about 5-6mm.Its a very long strand, greatly stretched, with only a few gaps, where the baby ones wore through. I suggested he gets them valued by serious pearl experts here, before having them re-strung, no guesses who gets that job....
He thought the diamond clasp was valuable, but I think he may get a nice surprise with the pearls.
