I'm going to be teaching 'pearls' in a few months.
I can tell a lot and show many many pictures, but I guess people would want to see the real thing (I would...).
So here's my question: what should I bring?
My shopping list so far is single freshwater pearls in white, pink, lavender and black, a string of freshwater pearls with as many different natural colors as possible, single akoya pearls in white and black, single southsea pearls in white and golden and a black tahitian pearl.
Should I show akoya pearls with diffentent overtones? And how about different overtones in the tahitian pearls? Is that necessary (big investment) or not?
Would you like to see best quality (AAA)?
Anything else you can think of?
And does anybody know if it is possible to buy just one loose hanadama pearl?
