    I do, thank you, and it is something we've done in the past. We typically put our more expensive pieces in rosewood jewelry boxes. The problem we've encountered with those boxes, however, is that the...

    You have two kinds of pearls in your photos. I see two strands of freshwater pearls and one strand of commercial grade South Sea pearls. If you were told they are all South Sea, that isn't true. But...

    That is a strand of Tahitian pearls not South Sea. Some people refer to Tahitian pearls as black South Sea, but that is not a strand of pearls grown in the Philippines.

    I can't see an akoya producer ever doing that. They would basically be considered keshi and be much less valuable.

    There should not be a visible blemish on the front of a pair of hanadama earrings. It wouldn't have passed our inspection. If there is, that is a mistake so please contact us for a return label and...

    It won't be good for akoya. That's for sure. It may definitely mean the beginning of the end for all-nacre FWP. We will have to wait and see what commercial production looks like.

    No, they wouldn't be the same thing. These haven't reached commercial production and they are mostly in the 5 mm range. They weren't selling them yet either. These were given to me.

    Those pearls were insane. All of them were over 40 mm, and they were asking $35,000 per pearl!

    Chinese producers have been focusing on size for years but smaller pearls are much more wearable. We probably sell 50 or so 7 mm strands for every 10 mm strand.

    Drop shapes aren't terribly difficult depending on the shape. If you're looking for the perfect teardrop shape, those are exceedingly difficult.

    I really don't know. I asked a similar question. The response was that it was just another experiment.
