Mikimoto?

I purchased these earrings and the backs have been replaced obviously by a good jeweler. The back are marked 14k and the earrings test slightly under 18k. The only mark I can find is a small M on one. The pearls are extremely lovely with exceptional lusture and whitest white. A jeweler I took them to said he thought the were Mikimoto. Just thought I'd ask the people here what your thoughts are.

Hello LauraSeel7 and welcome to our Pearl Loving forum :)
I don't know about the rest of you...but the jewelry pieces don't give me a Mikimoto vibe, nor do the pearls...to me they look like good quality Chinese freshwater pearls.
But it is not that easy to tell from the photos.

The design doesn't look like a Mikimoto design to me, either.
