Found these unusual gray colored pearls
Are these pearls worthy of an appraisal?
I recently purchased a box full of old turn of the century "dirty" jewelry from an estate sale. At first I dismissed these pearls because they seemed to be misshapen and mismatched. but the more I look at them they appear to be quite lovely.
The studs themselves are marked gold. and the first pearl is a gray color. then the others are lighter and don't seem to match.
My question is: where do I go to find out what they are. we don't have many independent jewelers -- especially with pearl knowledge -- in our region.
Are these worth getting appraised? And what are they?
thanks so much
