Good afternoon, everyone! I'm hoping someone can help me identify/value this vintage, what I believe to be Biwa, pearl necklace. It has "JK8" as the maker's mark and "585" (14k) on both pieces of the clasp. It is knotted between each individual pearl, and has gold spring wire wrapped around the loop ends of the strands where they attach to the clasp. The photos don't even begin to show the true orient and luster of these pearls! Any information and expertise would be greatly appreciated!
