    Be careful, Kimberly22, nylon doesn't age well, being damaged by UV, even neon tube ones!
    As it's difficult to make tighted knots on nylon, or there are breaking points, sure pearls have been glued...

    Thank you JerseyPearl! I have not yet found a big tahitian pearl like the nice ones you use, but I am looking forward that, curious to know the result of carving of such nacre colours.

    nnguye20, if these spots are made of carving dust, they must be easy to remove with water. If you can't, maybe that's a mix of dust and other thing, a glue for exemple, then, try to rub spots with...

    Georgeous picks, GemGeek!
    A question : how this pearl's material is called, if not nacre? I believe to know it has the sames components, but aragonite crystals are organised like a radial structure,...

    Good eye, Lady_Disdain! as a man, I might add that a little filling with a thin nail file would make tips of hooks smoother, because so rough they are now, I beg they can injure your ears.

    In french version, Wikipedia signals some of the effects you notice, but in experimentation at high levels of exposure with animals, and says that it doesn't know if that can be observed on humans....

    I don't agree, pearlescence : acetone can irritate eyes, sure, and make troubles of consciousness only at very very high levels of exposure, but its hazardous level of general exposure is 2400mg/m3...

    I agree. Acetone can attack only dying, but never nacre, with a little remark : this solvent remove also water, a well known effect on nails when we use it to remove nail enamel, and conchyoline...

    I have looked at Kongs : he has no loose pearls with such a particular colour. Only one is enough pale, but more pink.

    Yes, pearlescence, but I wonder how dying has gone so deeply. Nacre cut don't show different coloured layers, or nacre nucleus would be dyed, too, in case of dying after cut.

    So strange to see pale bead in the middle of the cut. If pearls have been dyed before cut, (thick) nacre under surface would have to be also pale colour, and even if they have been dyed after, why...

    Katbran, if you have removed good epoxy by this way, you are luky! I'll try that.
    Now, strangely, acetone is one of the less hazardous solvents for health.
