    Default What kind of Pearl?

    Hello Pearl Experts,

    Needing your help again. I recently bought these pearls online. The description says that itís vintage, round 12mm pearls.

    Are these cultured freshwater pearls?

    The photo is too small. Can you post a few larger shots? Include closeups of any blemishes you see.

    Also, what is the metal of the posts and earring backs marked?

    Hi Miguelle,
    Please take the earrings out of the box and photograph them on a white paper towel. Also if there are any blemishes on the sides or back, please take a pic of them also. Were these purchased from the original owner? Was there a story to support the earrings being vintage? I don't think bead nucleated freshwater pearls have been around long enough to be considered vintage (at least 20 - 100 years old).

    12mm Freshwaters from around or even pre 2000 where available in the market grown from tissue nucleation.
