    Hi Libella, these are no natural pearls but fresh water pearls, nice if you not pay too much.

    Those are really cheap freshwater pearls. The egg shapes and the flat sides and small size give it away.

    They are flat backed fresh water pearls. Fire mountain gems sells these pearls in strands. The clasp too. I inherited my mum’s pearl craft room she has some of these pearls and clasps. Not the only vendor who has them. I know she shopped with them a lot.

    Welcome to the Forum.

    Cheers!

    Cheap Chinese freshwater pearls. Welcome, Libella. Keep hanging around here, and pretty soon you will be able to recognize them as well.

    That strand would be about 10$ retail. Freshwater, very low quality. I think you need to look at some better sellers. Try Wen or Kong on ETSY they have a wide range of pearls and will send extra photos .
