These are called "Black Pearls", but they have a subtle iridescent sheen with shades of purple, gold and even peacock green on a velvety dark chocolate background.
Pearls always have that soft inner glow and these are no exception. It is a shorter strand, 18", fat 5mm x 6mm pearls, hand strung and knotted. The clasp is marked 925 (sterling), OW with a small globe. There are no damages.
I'll include a new silk brocade pouch for safekeeping.
