    I am the opposite. There is a depth and glow to the natural whites that I love. But it is absolutely a preference.

    Personally, I don't agree with CIBJO on the whole blister versus blister pearl issue. I think it's going to be another debate at one of the congresses someday and things may change.

    This might not have made much news, but I believe SSEF came out with an article last year about this piece. The lab determined it wasn't a pearl but a natural blister. I'll try to find it.

    You've got a mix of cultured and likely natural whole and blister pearls, with possibly a couple of Penn pearls, American freshwater pearls and possibly Tahitian.

    Take a look at the last sentence in both the A grade and the AA grade. According to this, they don't even carry them. I don't believe there is anything unintentional about them.

    That is true, but my biggest problem with this is the grading. This is from The Pearl Source's website. That strand of pearls, according to their own website, would be graded A and not AA+. The...

    Before WWII Biwa pearls were grown with a nucleus similar to the way Kasumi pearls are grown today. They didn't become widely known or recognized, but were called "Fujita Rose Pearls" in the 1930s....
