I have been admiring some of the pieces that the Etsy seller LusterWear has been posting. She seems to specialize in pearl jewelry (among other art).
And while, ahem, I am not in the market for another pair of pearl earrings at the moment, I am quite taken with these freshwater pearl earrings mounted in 14k gold (so much of the more design-oriented pieces I see these days are vermeil or goldfill rather than solid gold, or with boring pearls).
They're beautiful, but I am little bit skeptical of the seller, as it seems all of her pearls are described as AAA and "flawless". Perhaps she really does only deal with the best of the best, but she also doesn't seem to explicitly identify dyed pearls. Maybe she assumes that people know better than to think that a bright red pearl is natural in color, but plenty of people mistake black fwp as natural in color and it seems not quite forthcoming to leave that out of the product description.
Thoughts? Experiences? Anything to offer would be greatly appreciated!
