    I would always choose the South Sea over the Edison. Easy decision for me.

    So, this is my first South Sea Pearl from Cees. I love that Cees would do his best to get quality at a reasonable price. I thought to post it here because I want to compare this ring with my FWP ones later on.

    that ring is beautiful, congratulations on your first SSP ring! such a classic setting! I also love rose gold on pearls, brings out the pink overtones. well, I am partial to rose gold in general.

    my current pearl pecking order: south sea > akoya > tahitians > freshwater.

    Cees bought the tsavorites - he gave me colour options and prices to choose from. Cees also did the setting for me. I supplied the design idea. He watched the job from start to finish.

    I have another one in the making. With pink sapphires and diamonds. Will let you see it when it is ready. This second one is even more exciting than the first. Design of second one is good. Cees sends me CAD updates, etc periodically, all via Whatsapp. I like that. Plus pricing was reasonable. Not over the top demanding. Cees really is very reasonable and easy to discuss issues with.

    Default SSP vs EDison

    I agree. Personally Edison pearl is dumb name. Who is going to brag about a pearl with the name of the inventor of the light bulb?

    Not to be picky lol but Edison didn't invent the light bulb .. he bought the Patent from two Canadians.. .eh? Makes the name even more lame.

    The story of Edison and the light bulb is more complex than that, but he was not the only one involved in the invention.
    I think using the inventor's name for pearls makes no sense.
