I found these in my mother’s jewelry box I remember she once told me they were gifted to her. She got them maybe 10 years ago & it’s a 32” strand. Can anyone verify if they’re fresh water pearls? The color is pinkish & depending on the light they have a purplish tinge to them. Thanks in advance!
They could use a gentle bath; grime has accumulated around the drill holes. I would also restring them as the thread/knots would be dirty as well; if it's silk, that would also weaken it, which would risk breakage.
It's easy to do your own restringing-- many of us do. You can find tutorials in our Lowly Beaders Club section:
