Hi everyone, I inherited this 43cm strand from my mother who purchased them from a jeweller (Nanyang) in Singapore in the 80’s. They are cream, some are round and some slightly baroque. Width is 7.4mm according to the jeweller who helped to restring them. Hardly any blemishes 😍. I can faintly see the 585 stamp which suggests the orchid clasp is 14k gold.

She kept this mostly in a box so it’s a miracle they have retained their lustre after gifting them to me approx 35 years later.

She doesn’t recall if these are freshwater or Akoya, so I was wondering if you could help me identify if these pearls based on their lustre and shape.
