    Pearl Paradise works with some EU stores, I believe. Anyone know the names?

        Please, any help? Jeremy, EU partners? Any of our French friends know any? I buy overseas, once or twice from Pearl Paradise and otherwise I make my own jewelry so I can't help.

        I assume you are already in touch with Pearlescence in the UK...

          I was looking at Fresh water pearls from China. They were 12-13mm, round with few blemishes. [Click image for larger version

Apparently this string was with Mantle tissue, no bead implant, pearls removed polished and placed back in to Mussel. It was approx 1000 USDBluidragon

            bludragon,
            Those look like mantle-tissue nucleated pearls. Notice they are off-round; this is a common shape for such pearls.

            Are you saying that these were grown around a previously-harvested, polished pearl that was re-implanted as a nucleus? Is the seller saying that?
