Since I am on a ban.........maybe someone here is interested? These aren't high quality but they are very pretty and fun.

The blue strand is dyed and very short but I could see making a nice bracelet with the nicest pearls on the strand, or using the pearls on a mixed medley strand. Or maybe combing the best pearls of both the strands pictured to make one mixed color strand?

The clasp is worth the price of this white baroque Akoya strand. Interesting how they are strung. The wearer must have placed bigger pearls near the clasp for when she wore the clasp forward.

I bought 5 strands from that ebay seller lol. Figured the gold clasps alone were worth it, plus some of the akoyas look pretty nice. I have a lot of pink FW to mix with them, and the blue strand actually fits me so I'm hoping they're nice!

Yesterday! Two are plastic and the clasps are not gold as she thought, so they're going back. The two strands @Lisa Loves Shiny posted are great, the blue baroques are nicer than I expected. The 14k wg heart clasp on the akoya is super cute and the akoyas are also nicer than expected! I also picked up a multistrand rice crispie freshwater for the 14k gold ball clasp and that's well worth the $30 paid.
