Hello pearl lovers. What a wonderful site I have found here. I am learning so much from everybody. Thank you all.
I have just returned from Tahiti with my humble little group of pearls. I had so much fun looking at them all, and choosing a couple. I bought a baroque pendant, which I love, but on the way home I thought to myself; "I really should have bought a round pendant too." So there I am, on the plane, and lo and behold, they have pearls for sale on the plane! And I can view them. Who knew? So I bought one. It is a Robert Wan pearl with a certificate that I assumed had a grade on it. But when I got home I noticed the paper only showed color (dark), shape (semi-round), size (11mm), and identity number as RW-16. The cost was 150,000 pacific francs.
My question is this; does anyone know about the pearls available on the airline? Are they all a coming from a certain grade? What have I bought? (Their website does not state the grade either, I emailed them and await a response.)
Thanks in advance for your time and any info.
Have a nice day.
