Then its drilled right there n topped with 18 ct gold bail. Its a part of a set. I have 2 fireballs made into a pair of earrings, topped with plain 18 ct gold hook. A set cost about 800 Australian$.
    TOO good LOL I'm in Sydney myself! I *try* to stay away from the big stores and stick to online - easier on my credit card! or so I tell myself...

        Ooohhhh!!! I can personally show u where I get that massive pearl! It wasnt a big shop. It was one of the shop at paddys market that sells pearls. You chose your pearl, chose settings, they will drill it n put on the setting for u. Or made your jewellery in Cabramatta, its not that expensive. Made your own design, chose ur gold crt 9 or 14 or 18 ct. Then 2 days later...voila!! I asked how much to make a pearl ring with 14 ct solid gold only cost 200 Australian $ or 158 US$. (My own pearl with gold setting from them). Total cost about 300$ with the pearl n the gold n cost to make. What can you get with that price online? Probably pearls set in silver or gold filled or gold plated or leather.

            • I was just sitting in my living room reading, when it occurred to me that the light seemed especially nice.

              I wonder what effect the solar eclipse would have on photographing our pearls? I may take a few shots later to see.

                • Thanks Cicadalady! This is a multicolor strand from PP that I bought from its original owner.

                  This photo shows the strand in its original form. I replaced the center dark pearl because it had some blemishes on one side that I found distracting, and somehow the pearl always managed to rotate so that the blemishes faced outward! I also replaced 2 silver colored pearls with the 2 peacock pearls that are now 2 pearls away from the center pearl, and rearranged some of the other pearls to balance the colors in the strand. It has less light/dark contrast now but I like the overall look and colors better. I wear this strand more often than my other pearls.

                  This is one reason why I have to be able to restring my own pearls. I'm kind of persnickety.

                    • Super choice Cicadalady!

                      The eclipse will peak in this area in about 10 minutes, but it won't be total. Really it's not even particularly dark now. I made a pinhole projector viewer out of a cereal box following this little video from NASA (but any box will do): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWMf5rYDgpc

                        PD - nothing wrong with Persnickety ! I would have changed it out as well..I hate it when the centre pearl has flaws..of all the pearls..why that one !!

                        • Pearl Dreams, I like the strand after you swapped the pearls a lot more than the original one, very well done!

                          Cicadalady, did your pearls enjoy the eclipse?) what a lovely set!

                          asurazzy, Happy (past) Birthday!! I got hungry just looking at your cake)) your earrings turned out very nice indeed.

                          Red, I wanted to comment on your carved pearl, but after reading about your private pilot licence I've got lost for words
