I acquired all these in an auction a couple months ago but can't find any information on them anywhere, other than that they appear to all be freshwater baroque pearls. After doing a little research on them, I've become a huge fan of pearls (especially some of these vintage styles), but I'm still not sure exactly what I'm looking at and would really like to know more. Some of the necklaces have other stones, and I'm not sure what they are either, and most should be vintage (at least 30 years old). Any help 1) identifying the necklaces and 2) how much they could be worth would be greatly appreciated!!
- I've done a tooth test (they are all gritty). I've also done a rub test (when rubbed together, they're gritty and a fine powder is produced, but no marks/discolorations are left on the pearls).
- One of the necklaces is a Miyamoto, but the pearls seem to be damaged and discolored. Maybe from heat or excessive perfume wear?
- I've included a photo of each necklace as well as each's clasp, and marked the photos with letters so you could tell which clasp goes to which necklace since they seem to have gone out of order upon upload.
