    this one went for a good price, I think about market price.
    Sadly, I will loose lots of money on fees, certificate and vat, but it's still a good thing for me.
    I made a attempt somewhere else, and lost money , spent about 1200€ for 3 necklaces, nice ones, but with small pearls, and sold them for for about 900€, was a really bad day, I also sold a pearl and stone cameo for less than I bought, I would have better kept them all...
    Now , if I have small pearls to sell, I put them on ebay, and keep auction house for bigger ones.

    Last few years were not as lucky as my first year!
    Today I won a "cultured or natural pearl necklace, 112 pearls", my guess is natural, hope it is!

    Wow, wow, wow. How do you win a natural pearl necklace? I'm intrigued. Also that little bird is adorable.

    It's a weird blister with some hand shaping.
    I have about hundred of old american freshwater pearls, and handwork was quite common.
    For the necklace, not easy to be sure from the picture, but description was mentioning "cultured or fine".
    Some color, luster, and shape variation can be good to proove natural pearl necklace.
    The thread seems old, maybe original thread, as the silver wire is black.
    This kind of box is typical from 1890-1900 french jewelry, so my best best is "original thread" from 1900 or so, of course the case can be older than thread.
    But if fully natural, the quality seems very good, just hope it is!
