I am a newbie here and just want to have a chat!
I have been lurking in this forum for a few weeks. I was glad I found it by chance. I have learnt a great deal from this forum - thanks to the contributors.
I have 3 pearl necklaces and thought they were real pearls. I have done the "tooth" test on them and discovered that 2 of the 3 were not real!
I am going to the US for a wedding in early April and have been trawling eBay for pearl pendants. I wanted to give them to my American sisters (5 of them) to wear for fun - as I have not seen them for almost 10 years! I ended up buying some cheap pearl pendants on eBay - but don't expect to receive them for another 2 weeks.
I am going to be in Orange County on my birthday and hubby said he would buy me some real pearl for my birthday . I want to make an appointment to see the pearls at Pearl Paradise and choose my birthday gift. I am reluctant to buy things online because I want to see how they would look on me and be able to feel and touch them etc. Also, I am very particular about what I like. However, I was told Pearl Paradise will only make one appointment a day!
I have to ask hubby which day would be best for us, and if he will be able to drive us to Pearl Paradise. We used to live in West LA, so hubby will remember how to drive to Santa Monica where Pearl Paradise is.
