  • Gift Pearls

    Hello,

    The parents of one of my international students gave me this necklace. I don't know anything about pearls, so I am wondering what these are and what they are worth. The parents said they are freshwater pearls, and something about 8 years (major language barrier here, unfortunately). The clasp says PGPM. They have what I think is called a button shape, 7-8 mm diameter on one dimension, 9-10 mm the other.

    You're right, you have a strand of freshwater pearls. I would call the shape more potato than button, but the luster looks very good and the surface appears clean, so it's definitely is a nice strand of pearls. The only thing is has going against it is shape.

    The clasp isn't gold, unfortunately, but I would still expect a strand like this to retail (standard Brick and Mortar) in the states for somewhere in the neighborhood of $500 to $1000, and likely double in Europe.

        I'll echo what Jeremy said, looks like very nice luster, surface and a good sized pearl -- very nice gift!

          Christy2772,

          What a special, generous gift~hope you will wear your strand and enjoy the compliments! Many of us prefer pearls that are not perfectly round. Pearls are more on trend than ever this year! Please don't save them "for good."

            Freshwater pearls are wonderful because you can wear them everyday and not wear them out. Your strand is absolutely lovely and a terrific size!

            (very nicely done with the photos! Pearls aren't an easy subject)

                    Christy, is there any chance we could see a photo of them on your neck? I'd love to see how they drape and how close they are to your ears.
