C10B5EA9-0063-40A3-B732-1BDEB09176D6.jpeg Ok so it’s short notice. But in the next 30 minutes or so, could anyone give me an opinion on these? 32” strand, cold to the touch, they say, 7-8 mm pearls. I think theyre pretty and I wonder if my offer of $199 is too high? Anyone have an opinion? I don‘t know anything about pearls.

Are they claiming to be akoyas?
I can't quite tell.
They look nice. Is there a return policy?

It's hard to tell from one picture. They look like baroque, at least mildly blemished Akoya pearls from the picture. They look like they have good luster with a lot of pink in them. If the strand has yellowed with time (if seller describes them as cream colored is a good hint that they have) they might appear to be more peach than white with rose overtone. Will you be okay with that?

Comparable strands on Etsy range about $350. For example, this double strand. https://www.etsy.com/listing/941455...llery-1-33&organic_search_click=1&pro=1&frs=1

Hope that helps.

Thanks for responding. The seller doesn't accept returns so it would be a gamble.

But pretty. This would be for casual wear, with a linen pullover, just relaxed.

Sorry to only post one pic!
