Help with type of pearls…

Hello all! I recently purchased these pearls off eBay, and haven’t received them yet, (which is why the background isn’t white. Very sorry about that!) I was just wondering if you all could help me decipher whether these are salt or freshwater. They look quite old, so the nacre is chipped on some, they also appear to have a slight pink overtone, which is hard to see with the red background. They are 7.5mm and the clasp is 14k gold. Any help is appreciated! Thanks so much!

I'm guessing baroque Akoya. I don't see any freshwater signs.

I really appreciate the response! I received the pearls today and they are much more of the rose color than I anticipated. They’re quite lovely. :)

Another sign that they are Akoya :) They are traditionally pinked.
