    I'm not sure if Links of London is a British company, but if they are still in buisiness, contact them for a date when this was made and the model. Generally speaking retired pieces are worth more than current models. They can also tell you if the pearls are genuine, natural, or cultured, otherwise the only definitive test is an xray or a hammer. If those are genuine pearls especially natural pearls, it will greatly effect value. If the pearls are fake, then your set is worth about $100-$150 retail (that's based on no knowledge of Links of London jewelry).

    I may have spoken a little prematurely there, depending on how popular this company is, the value of this piece is probably seven to ten times what I quoted you. Surf ebay and see what similar pieces go for. Here in Texas, with the present economic climate, nothing but James Avery and Tiffany resale anywhere near retail value.

    Links of London is very closely up there with Tiffany and James Avery!

    I don`t think those pearls are fake. They looks real and they are great!

    I was told you can tell if a pearl is real or not by rubbing on your teeth. If it feels gritty it's real and if its smooth its fake. I'm not sure about cultured though.

    Chris3d3,
    Actually, thats not correct, they have been coating pearls for the last hundred years or so. If you do a search titled "Identifying Pearls", you can find out all about it. I had a necklace that I was sure had genuine pearls in it and took it to my favorite jeweler and he told me the same thing.
