Thanks for posting on

It sounds like a Japanese Akoya Cultured pearls just based on the color description.

However, I am sure you would like to know definitively whether it is freshwater or saltwater pearls. Can you take a series of photographs of the pearls and upload them to this post?

Also, do you know the size of the pearls?

Is the paperwork that came with it from a specific company or appraiser?

Is their a clasp that is stamped?
