This strand is incredible!  If you can find it anywhere else, the same quality will cost you much, much more.  Although the pearls look a lot like the texture of roundish baroque Kasumi pearls, this strand of freshwater bead nucleated pearls is cultured in China.  They are known as "Chinese Kasumi" pearls.  These pearls have some beautiful overglows of rainbow colors on their mostly golden bronze glow skins.  This color combination, as well as their baroque shapes and skin characteristics, give them a very unique organic look...simply stunning!   They have some nacre irregularities, which is characteristic of this new generation of mostly larger pearls, such as a bit of pitting, and a few very small blemishes as shown in the photos, as well as mostly long baroque drop shape variations, making them so unique and special, and have beautiful luster.  These pearls are wonderful for many great uses such as a one of a kind necklace, bracelets, and as unique focal pearls.  They are excellent for this price, (priced much higher anywhere else if you can find them) always passing on my good buys to you.  You will find nacre irregularities on these pearls, as they're not perfect, though they're very beautiful in their imperfections.  Definitely not your grandmother's pearls!  You will receive the exact strand in the photos. 

Some photos may show how this temporary strand will look as a necklace.  It is not a finished necklace, only a mock-up of one.  Although the photos try to show the exact color range of the pearls on this strand, many factors affect the color appearance, such as the angle of the light and automatic adjustments of the digital camera.  To me, the pearls look a bit darker and more metallic than the last few photos.  Your monitor may also affect the color.  Genuine pearls of color often look a bit different in varied lighting conditions.  These truly are amazing pearls!


The pearls measure approximately from 10.5 to 13.0 mm in diameter, and 10.7 to 14.5 mm long (hole to hole).  The pearls are on a temporary strand which measures a little over 16" long.  This strand has 34 unique baroque Chinese freshwater bead nucleated flameball pearls.  All sizes are approximate.


Please watch for more gorgeous pearls and quality hand made jewelry in the near future.
