    Default Not sure if these are real...

    Hi Everyone,

    I am so grateful to have found a community like this.

    I received these pearls from a family member. They were falling off their string. They are between 4mm to just over 1cm. They feel a bit gritty when rubbed together but I can't be sure. I was thinking of making something with them and am curious if they are real or valuable?

    Thank you to everyone who reads this or responds. I really appreciate the help

    Aehug,

    Looks like you have quite the collection of Chinese freshwater pearls there! They don't have a bead inside to make them round, so they are all nacre. You can create an interesting necklace from these. Pearl Dreams created an awesome tutorial teaching us to string pearls here
    There are "stringing" videos also under the "Lowly Beaders" section of this forum.

    Chinese freshwater pearls, from the shape. They seem to have nice luster although you might want to pick of a few duds. They are all nacre so you can wear them without worry.

    They look like Chinese freshwater pearls from some years ago that are trying to look like Lake Biwa pearls from Japan. Restring them and enjoy!
