    Hi and welcome! Just above, you will find a link for the Sea of Cortez online shop which sells the kind of mabes pictured above. Most of the links in this thread should still be good.

    http://www.perlasshop.com/categories...s/Mabe-Pearls/

    These are the most rare and colorful mabes from oyster pearls. There is also a link for Abalone mabe in this thread. LINK for a google search for akoya mabe pendant:

    Rainbow Island pearls has this mabe:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pale-Pastel-...item484271269b . Although not a member here, this vender is used by some of our members with high praise.
