    I wasn't fishing for compliments, really, but thanks so much for the kind words!

    Sometimes life is unfair...Jeremy getting to see this pearl in person and me never seeing it is one such example!

    That pearl tour included a visit to Paspaley's Darwin grading/processing rooms and they showed us the "specials". You wouldn't believe all the incredible pearls we saw.

    Seriously, by now you should recognize my hand holding the pearl. I always get teased about the manicure.

    Is it as big as the pearls in Hisano's hand (during a gem show a while ago)?

    Hisano has a delicate little hand. I don't remember the photo, but I have an average hand. I have seen longer pearls but never this big and still beautiful.

    You are so right, but in my defense there was a pearl in the picture a very big one. I confess I was distracted lol. Also I plead ignorance when it comes to manicures...why are you teased, now I am curious?
