I convinced my wife that she needed a new strand of SSP pearls at an estate auction the other day and when we went to put them away we realized that over the years she had accumulated a collection we had forgotten. I found Pearl-Guide and have become slightly obsessed I think (there's so much info here)! I've already received a bunch of help from PearlDreams and CathyKeshi which is Greatly appreciated but I'm hoping for a little more here. First I will post a pic of the collection and identify the ones I have been taught about then I'll show the two I am having the most trouble with mainly because of the shape. Well here goes...

starting from the left 1 &3 are my late mom's imitations, 2 is also Mom's but is "real", 4 &5 are the ones I'm curious about right now, 6&7 are unidentified antique shop buys, 8 is vintage Mikimoto, 9 is a mixed piece I bought during our first year of marriage and was the first "major" jewelry purchase other than our rings, 10 is the SSP strand that started all this.

Any help with type/terminology for the multi-strand pieces would be GREATLY appreciated!
