Beautiful High Quality Salt Water Cultured Pearls

This is a beautiful quality strand of cultured salt water pearls. They are big, measuring from 8.6 mm in diameter to 8.9 mm. The strand is knotted between each of the pearls and is 16.25 inches long. Then you have the 14K gold clasp which makes the total length 17.75 inches. These pearls are very clean not having any imperfections and have a very high luster. Such luster can only be seen on the highest quality pearls having a thick nacre. I showed this strand to the gemologist who I often commission to do appraisals of my jewelry pieces. He said that in his opinion these are Akoya pearls and would be priced at least $2000 at the wholesale level.
