  • Help with ID on ebay pearl necklace please!

    Got this about a week before the last one I posted, they're very small, probably around 3.75 to 4mm, clasp is sterling. Rope was intact when I took out of the box, knots in between the pearls are grubby, and rope broke at clasp and dislodged one pearl, so gotta restring before I can wear them, and said Japan saltwater? they really glow!

      Hello Faith!
      These do look like Japanese Akoya pearls...even their color screams "vintage" and those pearl sizes...wow...we don't get to see those sizes anymore but at the beginning of pearl culture it was common to obtain small sizes. As the experience of the grafting technicians improved, so did pearl sizes.
      Often times smaller pearls are more lustrous than the larger ones...you can clearly see it in these "babies"

      Quite a find!

        On hearing that reply, have to say I'm thrilled! Can't wait to get to wear them as soon as they're repaired, didn't even get to try them on before they came apart. The thread is pretty decayed, good to know my 57+shipping cost was well invested in something that I love! Thank you Douglas! It's been pretty fun trying to spot a "good one" online for sale, and win the bid!

            I Wii likely be checking out the lowly beaders club, and getting in touch with pattye for supplies, then I'll do that! Have a hard time not looking at them, they're just so pretty, nothing tops mother nature for beauty!
