Sooooooo...as you know been spending ENDLESS time reading everything on this forum - like seriously check out the time I'm typing this. Anyway, I so enjoy it - love the passion all of you have!!!!! I think I am turning into a pearl junkie - he he he...
So I have a specific question for those of you who actually have AAA CFWP AND the Freshadama or Freshwater elite - can you really tell a very discernible difference
a) when you view it from at least an arm's length away - are the AAA that much notably different than a Freshadama / Freshwater Elite strand?
b) On closer inspection are the AAA that much lower in quality (i.e. cleaniness, discernible lack of roundness compared to your Freshadama / Freshwater Elite, less luster - I get that it will have less orient but is that significantly discernible?)
I ask because the price difference on a 8-9mm, 18" AAA CFWP necklace vs. a similar Freshadama is that the Freshadama costs 2.5X more and hey let's be honest - anyone check the stock market or housing market lately?
So big question - for those of you who OWN AAA & Freshdama / Freshwater Elite - do you think a novice person will be able to discern a BIG difference and do you personally feel it is worth 2.5X more money?
Does anyone have any pics to compare AAA vs. these new level of elite pearls side by side? I haven't been able to find any but maybe I missed it.
THANK YOU ALL! Ok I need to get some sleep - talk to you all tomorrow - or I guess later today
