  • What kind of pearls do I have? Larger

    Hello all, Recent purchase of this necklace which has an older clasp marked 925. The pearls are fairly large but are not perfectly round and they also have a ring around them. Are they baroque and are they common? Thank you for any help. Click image for larger version

    Hi momsjewel!

    Your pearls are baroque freshwater pearls from China. Baroque freshwater pearls are the most common kind of pearls, but the upside is that these have solid nacre and are very durable. Plus, it's fun to wear large pearls. Enjoy wearing them!

        the fact that they are uneven gives them a more natural look
        and also you can be sure that they are real, its easier to fake perfectly round pearls than unsymmetrical, no one would other

          I agree with Samll...they won't fake shapes other than rounds. The rings around many of the pearls make them easily identified too.

              Hello Amelia and Welcome to our Forum!
              Yes, they seem to be an assorted group of very symmetrical baroque freshwater pearls. I would call them semi-baroque and some circled.

                Watch the knotting - I can see a thread end sticking up between the next to last and last pearl at one end. That means there's not a lot of knot holding the necklace onto the clasp. (try a silver cloth to cheer the clasp up)
