    “Daniel from Burlington antiques is so professional and easy to deal with, I have used his services twice and would recommend him to anyone thinking of selling high-value goods. He takes all the stress and hassles out of selling by coming to your own house and makes a transfer for the item while you wait. I couldn’t recommend his services more.”

    How Much Will I Get For My Antique Pearl Necklace?

    This depends on a variety of factors, including the type of pearl and how many pearls are on the necklace. As an example, cultured pearls are typically worth more than natural pearls. We will be able to tell you what type of pearls your necklace has during your valuation. 

    We will also take into account any other valuable features of the necklace, such as if it includes any gold. We cannot offer static prices or even estimations because we need to personally inspect the jewellery and cross-reference this with the market value at the time of valuation.

    How do I know if my pearl is real?

    Real pearls are produced by oysters from either fresh or saltwater habitats. As long as the pearl is from one of these oysters, it will be recognised as a valuable pearl, regardless of whether it’s cultured or natural. In today’s pearl market, most are cultured, natural pearls (those that have zero human intervention) are extremely rare and are only really found in museums. Real pearls are also referred to as “natural pearls” – meaning they are real, not fake

    What type of pearl is the most expensive?

    South Sea pearls and black pearls continue to be the most valuable type of pearls. Some of these pearls can sell for upwards of £25,000.

    How can you tell if my antique pearl necklace contains real pearls?

    We have been valuing and analysing antique pearl necklaces and jewellery for over 20 years and know how to identify a fake pearl from a real pearl. Real pearls are typically grittier, heavy and aren’t perfectly round.
