The picture posted below shows an 18 inch pearl strand I bought 10 years ago. They are not all perfectly round, but I am pretty sure they are real as there is an gritty sensation when rubbed against each other. They also have quite some weight, and the average pearl size is about 6.5 mm each.

If possible, I would like to know approximately how much their current value is and what type of pearls they are. I also think they might need some restringing as some of the parts have loosened quite a bit. Any help would be appreciated. Name:  961BB8FA-1F33-44F5-841E-BECF197E315A.jpg
