    It's such a small pearl world ..I've run into so many people . Had many meals and shared lots of taxis with Betty Sue King , got great advice when I was dithering over strands . Ran into folks from home , Adelaide , who have a fashion pearl business . Jeremy popped up all over - he cracks me up ..he's like the energiser bunny . If he told me he was starting up Pearl Airlines I wouldn't be surprised..I can see the logo ..strands of pearls wrapping around the tail and along the side. Cees ..he was everywhere as well ..I think I ran into him at least a dozen times ! He is such a lovely man - we visited many pearl stands together. I even found Wendy filming him sorting pearls and looking very intense . I think she was putting it on her site. I only filmed lots of pink saphires ...a whole case full of PINK ! Then I went to the Gem hall ... it's hard to explain..booths specialising in Emeralds, rubies , Blue Saph , Orange , yellow , tanzanite...you name the gem and there is s booth . Diamonds have there own hall ..a SERIOUS wall of 20ct plus stones .... I just stood and laughed . It was ridiculous..wonderful but ridiculous! Emeralds of 20mm x16mm ... sigh . I wish I could have taken a photo ..but they are a bit sensitive..guards everywhere. I returned to the hot but friendly pearl hall .

    Yes, I'd happily wear a strand of those! Better yet, multiple strands.

    I'd happily wear multiple strands of those together as a torsade.

    Those painted pearls are really very unique! I love the peacock feather. I could definitely see using one as a statement in a strand of Tahitians.

    I agree JP, the painted pearls are very unusual! The first painted pearl right under the tahitian keshis had caught my eye.

    Hello Katbran !
    A question : how to know if gems are true, selled on these places ? More than two thirds of gems selled in the world are false, the first to product them is Asia... and, when I see shape and colour regularity of a lot... I have doubts...

    PD to the rescue ! Thank you !!

    Jp - I think if you were careful in how they were used ..dangle earrings..then they would be fine ..I think.. there was a whole counter full !

    Abi- they were really amazing !

    Ericw- I don't buy gems from the show. I know nothing about them . If I buy a gem I buy from some of the gem cutters online who know what they have. and declare treatments. There is also a site Wildfishgems - some people here have bought from him . His stones are apparently all untreated.

    BW - there was a language issue but they did look painted. I'm going back for a few hours before going to the airport..I'll see if I can find them again lol but they look painted. Very very pretty. Just not sure how durable.

    Thanks kalmen! I've not taken as many photos as I usually do , I've just been so busy! But I'm glad you have enjoyed them.
    Thanks Cathy - they were remarkable ! Best I saw!
