So this necklace has been rattling around in the junk pile as one of those cheap costume faux pearl strung together with colorful bead type of deals -- what I think Bonnie would call "bijoux." I've been trying to get my jewelry hoard under control, pulled this one out to inventory it, and when I was looking at the clasp, noticed there was a teeny tiny stamp just under the opening, I got out the loupe -- 925. A silver clasp made me take a closer look at the faux pearls and noticed they were irregular and very lustrous. Real pearls? I did the pearl teeth test, and they passed. Well whaddaya know? So now I'm curious about the other stones. Possible the big green ones in the middle are jade? After that, the next one is yellow, then next is orange, then next is grey, then brown, then dark orange, then light orange. I'm thinking I may take this to a local place that specializes in natural stones, see if they can tell me what I have. Thanks for looking.
