First and foremost, a million thanks to the regulars of the forum who take their time to enlighten us Newbies on the woes of Ebay pearl shopping and to provide insight and knowledge in the world of pearl selection and purchase...and as with diamonds I can see, YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET!
That being said, I've stumbled across an Ebay auction for a pair of "black" pearl earrings from a reputable estate dealer that I've done business with in the past. Their feedback is public and OUTSTANDING...my past purchases have appraised for amounts comparable to their estimates.
I'm having a bit of trouble posting a link...so, all i can provide is the eBay item number: 5049343008 (my apologies). I think the seller may purposely be giving a vague description of the item. In any case, any information you could provide me given the photos and the less than descriptive description would be helpful. I've asked the seller for more specs, and am waiting a reply. Nonetheless, I'd like to do my own research as well and am not confident in my own opinion...whatsoever!
I thank you all in advance.
