“A” Quality, freshwater pearls, loose, drop shaped, old rose to lavender colored, 9mm x 7mm, Package 10. Vintage1990’s.
Subtle lustrous silvery rose-colored drop and semi drop shaped pearls with enticing luster and orient from silver to pink, maybe even a slight reflection of iridescent green. The drop shape varies, from a small tip to more of an oval. These pearls have fine luster and almost smooth surface. They are “A” quality, with lovely deep nacre. These pearls vary a bit in size, with most measuring around 9mm x 7mm. They are sold unstrung in packages of 10 pearls.
These pearls were produced in the early heyday of Chinese pearl production 20-40 year ago. At that time rigorous standards required good pearl nacre thickness and good luster.
