This is a string of Knotted Freshwater Pearls, they have a pinkish cast to their color. You don't see many blemishes and are really quite clean. The color is delectable so nice and very attractive. The closure is sort of a fish hook, but is a circle and catches the hook before it goes. This is a quality string of pearls. They are so smooth and cool to the touch. For you, they will come in a velvet bag and gift box ready to give. From Kansas a lovely string of pink pearls.
