    I.d. on baroque pearls? I cant figure out how to post text, so will comment in thread with details, thanks!

    Strand is about 16 inches long, and approx 6-7mm, clasp says silver, and contains a cultured pearl. Although the strand is knotted between pearls, I feel they are too tightly strung, and think that they could break easily, and they don't flow Smoothly, but I don't know how baroque pearls behave...

    Little Pearl's from ebay, any good?

    Picked these up right before the last, white ones, so about 3 weeks ago. Won the auction for a whopping sum of 6.50! Was about 11 dollars with tax and shipping, cheapest yet, lol! I had my doubts about their authenticity, but they match all my tests for cultured Pearl's. Gathering more small...

    More Ebay pearls!es I have gotten from Ebay, 7.5mm-

    Latest find! These are largest ones that I've got on Ebay so far, 7.5 to 8mm, 26" long. Curious what the pearl pros think of them, this time I paid 80.00, so they were a little more expensive than I would usually buy, definitely need re-strung, few knots are slipped! Clasp says 14k IWI?

    Vintage akoyas?

    These are the ones that came in the JS Lizzadro pouch. The pouch itself is very nice, padded velvet, was pretty dusty looking, but the interior was pristine, so I wiped down the outside with plain water. I think that this is my best deal so far, after my strand of tiny ones! They've passed all...

    Help with ID on ebay pearl necklace please!

    Got this about a week before the last one I posted, they're very small, probably around 3.75 to 4mm, clasp is sterling. Rope was intact when I took out of the box, knots in between the pearls are grubby, and rope broke at clasp and dislodged one pearl, so gotta restring before I can wear them...
