    The web sie also says "new necklace" and 2017 as "date of manufacture". My iPad mini cannot see the price or most of the pictures.

    I notice a long baroque or keshi silver pearl in this rope, that I do not see in the one for sale. But this is not the Sarah one, correct?

    No this one had lots of baroque pearls the one in the photo above did not have. It sold right after we posted the photos on this forum and did the write up of our trip. http://www.pearl-guide.com/forum/sho...-Kojima-Pearls

    The Grace rope was sold to Mermaid's Trove last year, so not the same rope as the one CathyBear got I presume.

    Grace rope is the delightful work that Sarah created for Pattye's 100-inch challenge, so not the same beauty that Lady D posted.

    I know this rope was around $5000. So the flipper wants $11,885 for it? Hum. I was tempted to offer $3000 for it, and say I know who made it, but I don't feel like typing in all my info. just to be annoying to the flipper.
    You are right BW!! I don't even think it was 5000! Quite the mark up!

    Beatriz ! How great to see you ...no excuses necessary...It's wonderful to hear from you ! I was thinking of you yesterday while I was fighting with a settings...I thought... Beatriz wouldn't be having this problem lol

    Pretty rope but the price is ridiculous even for SS and Tahitians.. ...I mean you could create something that expensive by using top pearls pretty easily but most strands like this are not made up of AAA pearls.

    You ladies continue to amaze me with your knowledge of all things pearls! This is a stunning necklace and I wonder who purchased it... if they bought with the intention to flip or ended up not liking it. The photos look the same.

    It's a stunning necklace, but wow! That's a hefty mark up!

    Lucky lady, It was even better in person. Sarah's creations are amazing.

    Haha SunSeeker - you are exactly right... There are actually Grace I the Original, and Grace II now Mermaid's Trove, and I was actually the one responsible for triggering all the Grace Ropes out there.

    I first contacted Sarah for the 100-inch Rope, then she created a new one (Grace II, which lilliefuzzysocks posted about, which Mermaid acquired and should be renamed to Mermaid's Trove).

    Even after the new one was created, I still loved her original rope, so Sarah graciously allowed me to adopt her original 100" Grace Rope... It is now mine... Heehee.

    Purr, I am blown away by your stacked ropes...they must weigh more than you do, but they look gorgeous!!

    That looks great on your neck. Purranha. Is it really heavy?
