  • What kind of pearls are these?

    I was cleaning out my garage the other day and came across these pearl beads. As far as I can tell, they do feel slightly gritty when rubbed if that helps any. I do not know where they came from, what they're worth, or if they are even real but would appreciate some feedback. I've included front and back pictures of each one. Thanks!

    Hi alchemist and welcome to Pearl-Guide!

    The pearls are real Chinese cultured freshwater pearls. The first few are natural colors of peach, lavender and white; the dark ones are dyed.

    These are quite common, so no real commercial value, but can be lots of fun to incorporate in hand crafted jewelry, if you are so inclined.

      Thank you Pearl Dreams!

      Just out of curiosity, what would a ballpark of their worth (though small) be?

        Agree with Pearl Dreams evaluation of these pearls. A fun find! Estimated value for all 5 pearls would be less than $2.00.

          All I ever find when cleaning out my garage is stuff that looks like it had a prior life...these pearls are really fun, and I agree, an opportunity to make something cool.

            What an unusual thing to find in the garage ! Like Jersey Pearl..I have no such luck .. I find spiders.

            Sadly I agree with Pattye as to the value .
