Hi there,

My mother is from the Philippines, and I recently inherited a ton of pearls she hoarded. These were all from the 1940s to 1980s purchased in the Philippines. I have no idea what to do with them 😅. Can anyone give me an idea of what I have? Are they south sea pearls?

I must admit it was kind of fun to pile them all on my table 😂

I'm sorry to hear your Mother passed. These earrings are bead nucleated freshwater with metallic shine, a more current purchase.
Pearls are very popular now and the pretty necklaces don't show stretched thread or much wear at all. The large dark pearls could be removed from the wire and knotted for a more classic look.
The strand of all golden pearls is interesting; could you post a photo of them separately?
