What I know about them is the following:
-They are from Japan
-They are saltwater pearls
-They were purchased in the late 1950s

Thank you for your help!

You've got a long strand of nice Mikimoto akoya pearls. They appear to be around 7 mm and have a nice pink luster.

They could use a restringing and a cleaning. I can't tell if there is nacre damage or if they are just a bit dirty.
Thank you so much for your reply! I will share this with my mother. They are very special to her and now to me.
I noticed the clasp looks like it is for multiple strands, but in this case only holds one.
