    hope to enlarge collection, I have to take a shot of loose clasps with better display.
    Except the 8,2mm one, pearls on bottom right are for a double strand using the round clasp with old mine cut diamonds.

    Beautiful collection, I especially admire the clasps since they are so difficult to source at reasonable prices here in the states.

    Here is a picture of another necklace I have in collection, pearls are 2,5 to 7,2mm in shape.
    Btw, I would try to find a natural 8,5mm pearl, round shape, or, better 2 natural 8,5mm and one natural 9 mm pearl, to make a 4-9 mm necklace, using my diamond and emerald clasp.

    All your clasps are beautiful- they look mostly art deco that I can see. beautiful reworking and beautiful strands- esp your first restring project.

    the last clasp is probably not that old, the diamonds have quite modern cut, especially weird for such small diamonds, so I think it modern era, also, the diamond on the left is the button to open clasp, and the curvature is very small, my guess is it's a tennis bracelet clasp, used as a necklace clasp.
    Here is a different picture on black background.
    We can see some off round pearls, and quite button shape here and there, the color is very good, better than my other necklace.
    I have a third one I can picture, but it will be for a next time.
