  • What kind of pearls are these?

    I got these from a friend years ago and have always wondered what kind of pearls they were. She got them from a jewelry store called Stanley in Little Rock, AR. The clasp says 14kg.

    They look to me like cultured Chinese FWP.

    They are a little off-round because these FWP don't have a bead inside (unlike akoya pearls.) This means they are solid nacre, and very durable.

      By the way, there is another P-G member named KarinK so it may be easy to mix you two up.
      (Just a heads up to us all to pay attention so we know who we are addressing.)

      The avatar may help. Also location.
      Maybe even making a small modification in your username, OP?

      Four or five years ago a member joined P-G with a username nearly identical to mine and it got confusing. She and I both made minor changes to distinguish ourselves.
