    Can't put my finger on it but to me, there seems to be something about these pearls that suggests a different provenance...

    Cam,

    Would it be possible to post a photo of the restrung necklace? Were you able to find out any more of the history of the piece?

    Think these pearls were over-processed from the beginning, before they came on the market.

    Sure they seem old, maybe pieces of a ancient tribal subject?

    I'm curious as to what the customer had to say. I can't believe they look like that! What was she doing? Bathing in H2O2?
