Big Grin  Can someone tell me about these?
Ladies, I know nothing about pearls. Last year, my FMIL gave me these for my Bday. They are from her jewelry collection and she gave them to me as an after thought IMO Crackup (that's another story) Does anyone know what these are called? TIA! Popcorn

They are ringed freshwater pearls. Some of them look like they are potato pearls. Are any of them without the rings? In general, I believe they are just considered baroque. They were also dyed to be that color. Very pretty!

Thanks @MrsK! A couple of them don't have rings, but now that you say that, they all look like potatoes. Thanks so much! Smile

They're also sometimes called screw pearls because the rings look like screw threads. They would look better on a black thread, if ever you get them re-strung

These circle' freshwater pearls are sold by Honora at the shopping channel QVC among others. They must be popular since they seem to be a regular item on their shows. These have been dyed to simulate Tahitian pearls. It appears someone restrung them to add an adjustable clasp, too bad they didn't use black thread. I like to give jewelry gifts to others. Sometimes they are new, sometimes not.
