    Default FWP or Akoya Pearls? - Please Assist

    Hello Everyone,

    I got this necklace from a store selling vintage items. It says on the tag that itís cultured pearls. I examined the clasp and it is marked 14K FIG. Would you be able to help me please identify if this is fwp or akoya? Thank you!

    Hi Miguelle,

    Based on the nice luster and roundness, probably Akoya. Very nice find! Are they slightly graduated? what length?
