    Question Freshwater Pearls - Where to buy!?

    I'm having such a hard time finding pearls...

    I'm only looking to buy Freshwater pearls, in between sizes 6mm-8mm, various colors (white, pink, lavender, and I'd like some dyed ones too!) and not drilled (I do that myself, as I only decide what to do with the pearl after I see it, in whatever way it inspires me). I would prefer round/near round, and minimum AA to AAA quality (these would be used in "one pearl" settings). I will also buy some buttons and rice shapes, but the buttons are sometimes more like "bread" shape/flatter, and that wouldn't always work for some of the settings.

    I saw a string of AAA pearls for $25, which would probably be closer to 50 pearls, but to try to find one single pearl, undrilled, if I ordered 50 of those, well, it wouldn't add up to $25 at all, it would be more like $200+. I'm not understanding how they can sell a full string of near round/round AA pearls for $25, but I can't find the same undrilled for the same price!

    Someone might have an explanation for me....
