Some of you might recall my earlier enquiries about Akoyas... I thought I made up my mind on getting a 16" AAA Akoya but i now find myself trying to talk me into an opera length freshadama, which will get me the look I want at lower cost. I know the luster is different and I accept that in exchange for volume and savings.
However, theres one thing that really bothers me - the body color of Freshies. The wonderful, super patient Mia at PP has sent me a pic with Akoyas and freshadamas. On the photo, it looks as if there a hint of 'cream color' on the white freshadamas which makes the pearls seem darker and creamier than the Akoyas. I notice this on pics posted by others as well.
So my questions are... Do white freshies tend to have a hint of cream on them? what effect does pink/white overtone has on the color?
