Fake Mikimoto pearl clasp?

There's so much pearl fraud on ebay; it's disgusting. One's chances are so very small of getting a genuine Miki strand at a bargain price.
Are you wanting nice Akoyas, rounds, baroques? A graduated strand? Mikis only?
I don’t like Baroque pearls. I’ve seen in a nice large pearl necklace with a big silver clasp, in a local jeweller.
Lovely clasp, glad you got the real pearls!
Thank you x
 
These look Kosher :)
 
Hi, the M on the fake necklace is for Marvella faux crap - not M for Mikimoto. I am in the process of getting a refund but the seller is playing the victim

The seller is now telling me they are cream and sorry that I got them cheap - she’s happy they are being returned. However, she’s dragging her feet refunding. They are absolute crap - she’s still insisting they are real and tried to convince me they are cream - we can see the colour. She’s gaslighting me!

They are plastic and hardly weigh anything- I’ve seen the same that are Marvella faux pearls. The fail the pearl test - not cold and smooth on the teeth. They are not pearls. Enlarge the picture.

Are looking at the pearls with the circular clasp? If so, they are real sea pearls.

Yes, I am referring to the one with the circular clasp., Some of the pearls look off round and I am wondering if that is the case, or if this is an effect from the photography.

This section of the strand, for example.

Hi, I will take pictures tomorrow- am in the UK and it’s bedtime. They are lovely - I bought the several weeks ago. I don’t know what pearls they are - was told sea pearls.

It appears that some of the pearls are off-round. They look like freshwater pearls to me.

Here is an image of two freshwater strands below to akoya strands. The FW pearls are very close to round, but not perfect round. The akoya pearls are perfect spheres.
