Fair enough - I wanted to make sure someone wasn't raining on your parade.
However, it makes one a bit cynical about their marketing, because they say things such as:
We buy pearls directly from the Pearls farms by moving ourselves to China, Japan, Australia and French Polinesia.
How can we offer to our customers such low prices? The reason is simple, we work directly from farms to on-line sale, no intermediary. It is also the reason why we can offer variety of colours, dimensions and the lengths which you wish.
