    Default Help identify value and type of 3 pearls

    I have three pearls. The smallest I believe is a Akoya. I measured it to be 8mm and it weights 3cts. The middle one is button shaped and a rose color with green overlay. I measured that one at 10mm and about 5.5ct. It has three hammer defects on the flatter side otherwise smooth. The 3rd one also measured 10mm and is almost 7ct. It is baroque shape and cream color with silver overlay. Thank you for any kind of information.

    CookieDoodle,

    Welcome! Please give us more information, such as where did the pearls come from? Did you buy them? Inherit them? Please take a photo of the underside of the pearls.

    Thank you for the additional photo. Probably these are all cultured freshwater pearls from China. The flat side on the large white one is where it grew against the shell. The middle pearl could be a natural color or might be dyed; I can't be sure. The smallest pearl looks to me somewhat flattened and a shape not characteristic of akoya baroque which would have a small mother of pearl bead inside. These are fun as collectibles, but unfortunately don't have much value.

    Looking forward to opinions from our other forum members ~

    I don't see anything that makes me think they are anything other than cultured freshwater pearls.
