  • Lovely dangles, Asurazzy. Did you purchase most of your 22k jewelry in Asia (in Indonesia)?
    Here in Europe we only have 18k gold.

      • Thank you Pareltje and Sanippy.
        Yes most of my pearls jewelleries I got from Indonesia. They always use 22k gold or 91.6% pure gold for their handcrafted items. For their factory fabricated settings its 18k gold imported from China. I mostly get the pearls I want then basicly giving them design or Ideas on what kind of settings I want for necklaces, pendants, rings, bangles, bracelet etc. Its very reasonably priced too.

        I saw pearls with gold plated or gold filled settings on etsy or 14kt gold on etsy or other site and the prices are astronomical...

                  So pretty...and that warbler is so cool! My youngest is in college studying environmental science...she had a course on birds this past semester and LOVED it. She has become an avid birder...we had a Canada warbler in our yard the other day.

                      • Thank you MSC and BWeaves.

                        Btw MSC keshi more expensive than regular pearls? Been interested in having them for quite some time now.

                        Tday wearing my big baroque fresh water set with 18 kt gold setting and chain. Pair of earrings and a pendant with chain. Hubby got it for me here in Sydney as a 3rd year wedding anniversary. Its the pearl jewellery I wear the more often. They are pretty tough. Not fragile I mean. I like the white silverish color.

                        • I'd take that coffee mate anytime!

                          Thank you, Jersey, Kat, and asurazzy Whether or not keshi is more expensive than cultured I think depends on the rarity of the keshi and their size and quality. For their size and quality, the SoC keshi are more expensive than the cultured pearls because they are so rare. I haven't seen an erotochromatic quality SoC keshi yet (though I might die and empty out my bank account if I did!). The Tahitian keshi's I've purchased have not been as expensive as the cultured pearls and that too has to do with quality. I haven't seen Tahitian keshi's with the mirror luster that really high quality Tahitian's get. I've never purchased SSP keshi as of yet, so I can't comment on those, but others here have.

                          It's a slippery obsessive slope, Jersey! Does your daughter do ebird? I've resisted because I don't have the spare time to get sucked into that rabbit hole. My boss is obsessive about it though.

                              I'll have to ask her.
