    I concur about the photos. The strand in the photo is a stock photo, not a photo of the actual piece.

    I asked Hisano for a modeling shot ;) The strand is in the vault at the office though, so we will have to snap one when we are back.

    Yes, I was confident the strand was natural when I saw photos....

    No, I haven't done that yet. They belong to Hisano now :)

    I purchased a strand of natural pearls worth around $100,000 from an online antique dealer who apparently thought they were cultured. That is nearly as rare a unicorn.

    I can't say I really liked this article. It seemed like the author was a bit passive aggressive toward the pearl industry. It did have some good parts though.

    Finally, I had to laugh at this part...

    Sure.

    1. It is secret and in writing. A lot may or may not have a floor price.

    2. Yes. Larger lots and mixed lots will be a better value.

    I guess those shells have rice-shaped akoya pearls inside of them, lol.

    So the BBC may be doing a story on this pearl party craze in the next few days. Buzzfeed is doing one too.
