        Sorry to revive an old thread, but I was curious if the brooches were ever determined to be Scottish pearls? Curious because I came across a similar piece.

          Never be sorry to revive an old post! There is so much interesting information in our older posts.
          To prove you have Scottish river pearls is a very difficult task without provenance, but owning and enjoying them is the thing -- and if you are a collector like Cliclasp, you would want to acquire them.

            In looking for an old Mississippi pearl flower piece, I found this from a UK seller. They thought it might contain Scottish pearls and they seem to match pearls earlier in this thread. Either way it was pretty and $33!

                Those are actually polished turbo shells - they are often used in silver pieces (Strack, pg. 279)
