I saw these on Ebay a few days ago and loved the look of them - they were sold simply as antique pearls and the seller had no idea whatsoever what they are. I received them today and I believe they are Chinese freshwater pearls. What do the experts think?
Hi all, thanks for your replies...I will keep them, since the seller stated nowhere anything about them that wasn't true...he only said they were "antique pearls" and I do believe they are older since they look like they have been restrung. I only paid a very small price for them, what you'd expect to pay for freshwater pearls, so I will hang on to them and maybe restring them or make something else out of them.
