Rare? Good? Certainly could be 9.1mm?

How would one tell the difference with gold south sea?

I got a pair of really peachy colored pearls about 7mm awhile back & have them to my Mom.

Guess they could be freshwater too?

I guess I just thought they were off color but they were really golden peach...I now think they are gold akoyas?

1 is moms pearls

2 is pic from online of 7mm gold akoya

last are pics of 9.1 mm supposed gold south sea pearl
