    That's so unfortunate, Cathy!

    Oh, MSC, yes, I wish my burning curiousity about those "clam" pearls could be satisfied I don't think that kind of clam/mussel really even exists in PA waters today, although science says there are some; certainly not common. Maybe I should ask the grandson to search; he might just come up with some LOL. But, I have my memories of Dad, and his stories, to thank for my pearl love

    I'm finally going to do it: I'm sending my mystery art deco pearl strand to GIA... fingers crossed for a definitive answer!

    Not sure... I need to find the time to drive to a UPS or Fedex in the nearest city (a long drive from me). I don't know how folks have abundant extra time during the COVID outbreak while still employed, I seem to be busier than ever at work! Since I had shortened the length of the necklace, I had placed the pearls in a baggie with old akoya pearls and now I don't know which is which. I'd guess that'd take some time to sort out. LOL that was a great move. I've never submitted to GIA before so I don't really know what the turnaround time could be, especially with quarantine restrictions. I probably won't be able to send them till we're out of quarantine anyways...

    I am keeping my fingers crossed for you as well. The pearls seem to glow in the picture and the clasp is very beautiful.

    Thank you, Gemandpearllover! I was able to confirm the clasp is French in origin 18k with diamonds, the style appears to be more towards deco. I've had many pearl pros look at it and the consensus has been evenly split between cultured and natural, it's a real toss up!
