    The only problem you're going to have now is you will want to probably buy all different colors of pearls once you see them on this forum. I went from a white pearl collection to Tahitian pearls to South Sea. I very rarely wear my akoyas now--occasionally go back, depending on my clothes, mood and situation. Easy to get addicted!!

      I fear you are right! My intention when I began this journey was just to buy one nice stand of white pearls, and now I know I want a strand of golden SSPs and Tahitian pearls in ALL the colors! And yeah, I thought I could be happy with freshwater pearls, but now I feel like I need akoyas- and AAA grades akoyas, at that! A fool and her money will soon be parted, I'm afraid.

        I will! I've never photographed my whole collection, so this will be a good opportunity. Now I just need to figure out how to take decent pictures!

          That sounds SO much like the mess I got into

              Pearlie Sue, sorry for not answer your questions earlier. About luster, it's always difficult to tell. Mostly I ask. If the wendor has to good photos, sometimes the pearls disapoints.
              I have bought lots of pearls from both Pearlescence and Cees. They have great pearls and many times they can find what I look for if they don't have them in stock. Pearlescence website is uk based, Cees sells mostly from Instagram and Facebook (? Don't have Facebook so I don't know for sure).

                Still, I’m not repentant. I’d be heading for pearls, no matter where I started in life.
                I'm sort of repentant... Some purchases I would love to have reversed and the money back in my account. Others just make me feel bad because I rarely wear pearls these days, just the same Kamoka on leather. But I arranged some handmade wooden trays with my best pearls on my bathroom counter so I get to look at them - while counting in my how much they all cost me Maybe I should compare those strands to artwork instead. I mean, how can you put a price on the art of nature?

                  Better times will come back and I'm hoping we will be able to rejoin our Social lives and for you -beautiful people- to wear your Natural Art pieces again. I am so hoping for this.
                  We are just like pearls...and this is just another layer of experience for us. I'm trying to see it from a certain perspective: once we are "free" again we will not take it for granted and we will be more grateful...I know I will

                    My lack of wearing pearls is nothing new and not related to covid-19 I have been working remote for over 5 years. I always get dressed and usually work in cafs. They just don't call me to wear them much.
