    Default Amazing Fiji Pearl from J Hunter Pearls Fiji

    Posted on Facebook:

    "A J Hunter Pendent with one of our more rare Fiji Pearl colours, Coppery-Pink with Bright Green Overtone. Available on our e-boutique, www.fijipearls.com/ecatalogue. "

    (I had a look and now I'm sure to have sweet dreams!)

    Interesting that it is a C grade (A -D system). You can see a bit of a flaw on the side, but as long as it doesn't flip around, who cares?

    That's so pretty! I love the wide bail on the pendant too.

    Wow, that's grade C? Would love to see how grade A would look like!

    Most likely the side we can't see is the reason for the C. Great ring material!

    I would love to see these pearls in person. All of the pendant colors on that page of the website are really incredible - can the colors really look like that in natural light? No photo enhancement? Is my computer monitor making them look better than they really are? I think a field trip to Fiji may be in order...

    Here's a video where Justin Hunter talks about his operation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wl2Z4bw5LO8

    I think currently most of his pearls are sold to Gellner of Germany, and some sold in Fiji jewelry shops, some through the e-boutique, but his volume is modest as of now. I, too, would love to see the pearls in person! If you look below at the section Similar Threads there are a number of other articles about Fiji Pearls.

    Thanks for those links Pattye ... I did notice on the Geller site that the pearls, though they were not close ups, were not as colourful.
