Hello! New here, a friend recommended this forum for potential answers.

I have a bracelet and necklace (almost choker length, slightly longer) set. Three strands each. The clasp is a green rose of some sort made of stone. The box I got it with says Cherish, but I haven’t been able to find anything on Google like this. There are no marks on the metal.

I have no idea if these are natural or man-made pearls. I have no idea what the green beads are. I mostly want to know if it’s worth much, as I’d like to sell it if it is!

Both pieces and the bag and box I have with it.

The pearls are not round so I’m guessing they are freshwaters. They do have smooth surfaces and some lustre but I’m not sure they’d be worth much. No idea about the beads, sorry. Pretty set!

I agree with the others. Those irregularly shaped freshwater pearls are probably real but inexpensive. You can find them in the beading section of craft stores, for ex.

I'd expect the rest of the piece to be at the same level because it would be unusual to combine such inexpensive pearls with expensive other components and I don't see any markings on the metal that would indicate it's more expensive either. So I wouldn't expect its resale value to be very high but it's still a cute set.

It really is! I’m a bit sad it’s not my style. But I’m sure, real or not, it will find a good home!

....have you tried it on ?
i think it's so pretty
Was it left to you by a relative ?

If they were mine i would combine both pieces to make a longer necklase
its nornal to have to restring pearls annually or biannually if they get a lot of wear and you could reconfigure them into something you might like to wear

Pearls are funny things in that what might not be your style today you may become quite partial to in time

Yup potato freshwater pearls and not sure what the green stone is but doesn’t look like jadeite or nephrite?

One of the imitation stones if it doesn’t look like plastic irl.

Would consider it costume jewelry and not worth a lot, at least not enough to be worth selling.

Thank you! I am now going to go look into the differences between pearls, because I had no idea there was a difference! I thought both could be non-round.

It have tried it on. The necklace also lays a bit oddly on me. Not from a relative...a coworker gave it to my mom who gave it to me.

I never thought about restringing. Is it hard? In a different configuration, I would totally wear it. My pearl necklace I wear has space between the pearls...I don’t like solid lines of pearls.

The stones don’t seem to be plastic.

I just moved and had to use movers and a cleaning person for it (long-haul COVID, I can’t move or clean now...expensive disease!). I am going through my stuff and selling things I don’t want or need to help cover it a little. Even a little bit helps!

Oh yes !
Definatly rework it to your liking
i havn't done knotting myself
Its not very exspensive to have done -
But a few of the ladies here string their own and are very talented
Have a look at @MakingTheGrade
she makes the most wonderful creations

Im so sorry to hear you have long covid
moving is awful when when one is well but moving when you are sick is a nightmare

I think remaking your necklase would be a nice little stress free project for you

And how nice it will be to have a new pearl necklase at the end of it
