    Cool Sea water pearls? Pink/silver/cream toned, w rings in pearl?

    These were given to me a few years ago on a string that was knotted between each pearl, I just haven't had them redone properly hence my horrible attempt. 😅 But I think they're some sort of natural pearls? Possibly sea water? I was told they were very old when they were given to me. Any info regarding the type/value would be greatly appreciated! 😊Name:  Screenshot_20200901-211705.jpg

    We need larger, more focused photos with the pearls on white paper towel, please, or something similar to better see your pretty pearls. "Very old" can have many meanings, of course! Are the size and shapes similar to the bracelet pearls in your previous post? Pink coloring would most likely indicate freshwater pearls, not "sea water" pearls.

    I agree with Pattye...freshwater pearls are often pink/peach colored.

    About terminology...
    Cultured pearls are farmed pearls.
    Natural pearls are wild pearls, which form in oysters and mussels without any involvement of humans.

    Today almost all pearls are farmed / cultured.
