Very pretty, congratulations!

Ball clasps are common, so I think the mark is that of the maker of the clasp, not of the necklace.

Oh wow I didn’t know that the clasp was made by someone other than the pearl stringer?
Interesting…. Thought my gemologist teacher would have told me that.

Since you are going to be selling them, may I just point out that they appear to be freshwater pearls, given their somewhat eggy shape (unless the appearance of off-roundness is distortion from the camera, and the pearls are actually fully round.)

I agree with Pearl Dreams. Those are small freshwater pearls and the clasp just seems like a very common ball clasp that you can buy from many different sources.

Unless it's a special piece like what Kojima creates or you have full documentation for a necklace being Mikomoto, you don't talk about a maker when it comes to pearls. You may talk about where the pearls are from if there is a documented, specific origin such as Kamoka Pearls or Fiji Pearls. Documentation may show who put the pearls together but it's usually a lot less important than what type of pearls they are and of what quality.

Since you've identified yourself as someone who sells pearl jewelry, may I suggest you take the Pearls As One course offered by the CPAA? I believe the course is offered free to members of the forum (maybe our moderator knows). The course is super fun, interesting and not a heavy lift for the amount of information gained.

I had that course offered to me in school. Trying to finish first and I’ll maybe go back & do it. although, I plan on pursuing diamonds once I graduate. Pearls were a must to get Gemology license, thank you
