    Welcome to the forum!
    These are interesting photos, but we also need you to put the pearls on a white paper towel or something similar. They don't need to be magnified. We need to see how many pearls, and look at their overall characteristics, roundness, luster, blemishes - things like this. We look forward to seeing more photos

    All freshwater pearls from China, rather low quality.

    Ah, these are all freshwater pearls (cultured) from China. They don't have a high value, but someone who crafts can have fun using them to make jewelry. Thank you very much for the additional photos.
