    MSC, I LOVE your river pearl thread... you have an absolutely amazing collection. I had seen it before, and your thread is what triggered my obsession!! Only now it's become stronger (worse!). I have a few Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian pearl pieces, with natural pearls, but the pearls are not the emphasis of the pieces, and not nearly as nice as your collection! Thanks for all your guidance!!

    You're welcome!

    I started collecting pearls bc I fell in love with natural river pearls, what a slippery slope it's been! This was my very first thread on PG, and I'm posting it here because I put up a lot of photos of antique jewelry that feature Mississippi river pearls (scattered throughout the thread): River Pearl Photos In This Thread

    Thanks for the info, Lady_Disdain. No, it isn't very expensive - I think the small diamonds and 14k gold are a good part of the cost. Usually when I take time to think about a purchase, I usually send it back. I was mostly intrigued that it's an American river pearl, but thanks to MSC, I'm now more intrigued about NATURAL river pearls!

    I hate to ask this, but was it particularly expensive? I am only asking because I have some Chinese pearls that look very much like that, so I wouldn't be paying a premium.

    Thanks for the info, MSC! Still not certain I'll keep it, I'll live with it for a while. Hmmm, now my attention is turning towards natural river pearls!!

    Happy to share, lmgarden! If you search for Mississippi River pearl you'll come up with even more information, mostly on natural river pearls.
