I know that they are at least 55 years old and I am positive they are a lot older than that

This is a set of real hand-knotted pearls with a sterling silver and pearl clasp made between 1950 to 1960

and sold by Theodore Hundgen, watch sellers and jewelry store at Wirtelstrabe 29 in Duren, Germany.

They still have a jewelry store in the same spot and have been there since 1896. http://www.huendgen.com/sortiment/schmuck/index.html

Your set of pearls have a current value of $800 to $1000 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, Ebay and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
