Hi everyone. I am a newbie here and I do not know much about pearls.
But I just bought southsea super peacock pearls necklace from Bangkokpearls $4000
size: 9.1-11.1 mm , 17 inches length from this website so I need your commment , please. http://www.bangkokpearls.com/product...eacock%29.html
Why don't you tell us a bit more about under what circumstances you bought your pearls? Were they sold to you as South Sea pearls? Because usually pearls that color would be Tahitian. Were you on vacation in Bangkok? Is it your first pearls necklace? What made you choose that particular color and strand? We want to know and share your joy
Please show us your own pictures of your new pearls and of course a neck shot too. We love real life pictures
Have you received the necklace? And if you do, what you think of it? The pearls look stunning from the picture, but the website seems to use stock image so the actual product might look different. If you want the experts here to judge the quality, pictures of the actual product might be better.
And is it normal to call Tahitian pearls as peacock South Sea pearls? It's not the first time I see such thing.... And the website also mentions that the source is Australia, but that can't be true, cmiiw.
Sorry that I did't give you much detail.
l live in Thailand. I bought it online (my frind invited me) and still not receive it yet.
I decited to brought it because they is the one of supplier of Bigs ( Bangkok Insitute of Gemological Sciences)
I will take*pictures of the actual product immediately to show you what it look like.

South Sea pearls are from the Pinctada maxima shell, but many companies do use the term interchangeably for Tahitian pearls, which come from the Pinctada margaritifera shell. Often they will refer to Tahitian pearls as black South Sea pearls.
What is pictured, however, is a Tahitian strand. It isn't from Australia as advertised. It is from French Polynesia.
Last time I asked her. She told me that this is an 100% natural south sea peacock pearl not a dyed pearl, GIA can be check. As soon as I got it I tried to observe the various blamish . I found that there are some natural blamish. The color and sparkle not quite the same in each pearl. It look very natural for me.
Would you please tell me what the difference between natural pearls and dyed pearls?
