I found this string of pearls in a jewelry box that was just thrown away. I live in an apartment building that has many senior citizens, and unfortunately that happens alot here. People pass on and the relatives come and just throw the poor person's belongings away without a care as to what they had. The relatives just want to get it over with. I find it sad that a person's worldly goods, whether valuable or not, are just trash to relatives who should give a darn about it. I sometimes find things, like this necklace in a jewelry box, and decide to keep them to at least, in part, pay homage to a life now gone.
Anyhow, this is a string of Cultured Pearls that are heavy, hand strung and knotted. They are 18 inches in length and have a Fish Hook Filigreed 14kt White Gold closure. They are beautiful, I wear these all the time because I just love pearls. I think about the woman who owned these and wonder if her mother had them before her. And I hope she would be all right with me holding on to them until I pass them to my son's wife.
