Thank you for your message, I am trying to reply but not sure if this is the right way! I have just started a new thread where you will see why I have such a soft spot for graduated akoyas and why I always admire your treasures so much. I also love the way you bring these poor discarded beauties back to life and wear them and enjoy them. Look forward to hearing about your next find!
(I managed to post this message on my own visitor page when I actually thought I was replying to you - drrr!!)
No really. It's not just that you have retained the huge amount that you've learned (and you share it well), but that it's 100 percent accurate and not a little "fuzzy".
Look at you - giving awesome advice and posting the perfect orient photo. BRAVO!
I've been drooling over your albums. Gorgeous pearls! Your multicolor is making me think I'm really going to need one in the near future.
I'm posting a greeting to the jewelry counter sales associate I had such a nice chat with today at TJ Maxx in Farmington, CT.
I was admiring the large white hollow pearls and told you about how they formed around a nucleus of mud. These are also called soufflé pearls (or muck pearls, because of the muck/mud around which they formed.) Sometimes these pearls have wild natural colors but the ones I was admiring today were bleached white. For a discussion thread about soufflé pearls , see this link:
I usually forget to visit personal pages, my own included, but when I visited yours and saw your albums, I was knocked over. Not only is your collection totally faboo -as gemgeek would say, but you have put so much up in your albums! I am really impressed with your taste and your collection!
Waving a big "hello" to the pearl lover I met at T J Maxx tonight!
By the way, the username you said you would use on this forum is still available-- i checked!
Just posting to say "hi" to my friend S.G. whom I directed to this site. It was great seeing you again today!
I would like to say "Hi" to the gentleman I met at Tiffany's in Westport today, who was having difficulty finding the pearls he desired, and whom I directed here. I hope you find what you are looking for!
Thank you Pearl Dreams.
