    Yes, they look like cultured pearls.

    By the way, "cultured" and "natural" are opposites when it comes to pearls.
    Cultured pearls are farmed pearls.
    Natural pearls are wild, not farmed, produced by nature without the intervention of humans in the process.

    Thank you!
    I correct it. I like so much their champagned colour and think to combine it, when restringing.

    Welcome, Libella Your pearls are a very pretty color! While we often fall in love with the deepest golden color pearls, the color of your pearls is generally a very flattering color on most people. I look forward to see your pearls restrung.

    They look like cultured akoyas with some damage. And instead of using your teeth, you can take two pearls from the strand and rub them against each other very lightly and feel the grit. Fake pearls will slide right off each other. Wash them and restring them and they make perk up more!

    This picture i took it with some others pearls beside, more yellowish - the necklace is the white one, from down side, aproximattely 7mm, pretty consistently round. The clasp is stamped silver but there is some tarnish or staining on it, so i don't belive is silver.
    For me, this necklace has a whitish, greyish and slight pink tone comparing to the other 2.Name:  12.jpg
