      Ingykiz, drusy pearls are also sometimes called rosebud pearls. They are bumpy and wrinkly and really cool looking. I am attaching a (not-quite-in-focus) photo for you...

        10-11mm? Great buy!

        there are untreated strands out in the market and they are cheaper than those with treatment.

        this year's harvest was really better as seen in the market. a big jump in quality, size and colors. the pearling techniques are rapidly improving...

        was able to buy myself multi-colored potatoes at USD7/strand with some exotic colors in it...but that doesn't beat your 10-11mm semi-rounds at USD4.99!

          Thanks Boo,
          I see them sometime on Ebay and I am tempted to buy a strand but I was never quite sure what they were. I assume they are not that rare coz the strands I find are usually less than $100. They also seem to have some good color saturation in some of the strands I find on Ebay.
          I really got taken on a strand of "Tahitian" pearls my first time out on Ebay. Dyed freshwater and when I tried to get my money back, the Ebay store went belly up. I tried to get some resolution through Ebay but no luck. It made me a savy shopper though and I have been able to get some good deals. Looks like alot of Pearl-guide members have made some nice purchases and I always check out the stores that have been posted here.

                Breathtaking!!!!

                I love that you figured out a way to have both yellow and white metals in the same piece.

                  Thank you - I wear white gold, silver and yellow gold - I wanted a necklace that will match what I put on my fingers. Those pearls took well both colors of the metal....

                      To go back to the original title of this thread...

                      I noticed this strand from the same seller that imanit got the roundish pearls from:

                      http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...4776&rd=1&rd=1
                      Is this color natural? The same seller has other strands listed as "lavender," but these purples are so pretty!
