    GIA report says there is evidence of surface enhancement, which probably means that it's been polished on a wheel. Interesting pearl.

    That's why the brilliant luster? It seems worth it. What do you think?

    Yum! That is a really pretty pearl!!!!! It seems it priced out at no bargain, but still a fair market price. I hope everybody is happy!

    This is an abalone pearl I have always regretted not winning. It went for just over $100, but it was before I learn to snipe with my top bid, so I was scrambling to bid it up at the last few seonds and lost........... sad face. It seems to have a crack, but the metalwork(platinum?) enhances it beautifully.

    I like to snipe items with no bidders best. I did get the stickpin and it is most certainly a blister pearl, then I saw one no one had bid on for $5.95. I bid and won that one too. I am a small time bidder, though. The ab pearl was an exception and I didn't have much $$in the bank anyway- not over 100, but I'm glad I stole the pictures!!!
