PRICED TO GO ~ FRESHWATER PEARLS

They are large, 8-10mm.  They are long, 33 inches, hand knotted between each pearl.  They are baroque-y, or potato-y, or ridge-y.  They are priced to sell at not much more than it costs to have a strand knotted.  What they are not is as blue as shown here.  This is a case where the scanner sees more attributes than exist.  These pearls will be assumed to be "black pearls" .. in reality they are a very nice slate gray with a little of the rainbow effect.
