    Those are Chinese cultured freshwater pearls. That shape is usually called 'potato' pearls. They are very inexpensive and usually sold through bead stores, rather than as finished jewelry. $7-9 a strand in a bead store. $2 a strand in the big wholesale gem shows.

    Even if not worth much, they will look great worn and are a very useful kind of pearl for the office, etc.
