These are very nice quality oval shaped white freshwater pearls that range slightly in size. These pearls have very high luster, at approximately 7mm x 5mm in size with no noticeable surface markings or flaws in very nice shapes with only minor circling. Each strand has an approximate weight of 13 grams and there are approximately 54 pearls on a 15.5 - 16 inch strand. Hole size approx. .4mm.
These pearls were produced in the early heyday of Chinese pearl production 20-40 year ago. At that time rigorous standards required good pearl nacre thickness and good luster.
