These pretty pearls are well-matched, round, and have a very slight pinkish cast. Each pearl is 1/4" in diameter; they are all the same size. The strand is 16" long with a knot between each pearl. There are 69 pearls altogether. The pearls have a lovely luster. They are real, natural, cultured pearls of excellent quality, probably from Japan, and are around 40-50 years old. The clasp is 10K white gold and so marked. This necklace is in excellent condition; it has been recently re-strung.
