    They are apparent on my screen...which means they must be SPECTACULAR in person! I am really a sucker for these wonderful light Tahitians.

        Beautiful!

        Can someone tell me approximately how many carats a round 10mm pearl would be? Every so often I see pearls priced in carats but I have no idea since I've always purchased by the strand or individual pearls.

          I carat (ct) = 0.2 g = 0.007 oz av = 4 p grains = 0.053 momme . A 7.5 millimeter cultured pearl will weigh about 3 carats, or 3/5 gram.

          Here is a site that has a detailed chart for your reference:

            Katbran, thank you for posting that chart!

            The chart shows that small differences in size make a big difference in weight! I'm going to add a link to that chart to my thread about pearl volume.

              Recently i went to Singapore Jewellery Fair and saw some Burmese Golden Pearls. Are they considered as South Sea Pearls? They come in various sizes as well and as big as 15mm. They are sold in price per carats. About 10mm sold for about USD14/carat and bigger about 11mm sold for about USD18/carat. What you guys think based on experience?

              Thanks & Regards

              I am so new at this, and using carat for pearls is confusing for me. So how much would you estimate then for a single pearl to go for? They look beautiful!

                  Thank you and you are most welcome PD and Amti - I was glad that the question came up since for some reason I'd never bothered to check for such a chart I had a basic measurement that had been posted at PGF years ago for a 7.5mm one but never found a chart that broke it all down. For the most part the majority of us don't really need a conversion as the Chinese pearls we buy are sold in mm . But it does pop up every now and then so it's handy to be able to look it up.

                    Katbran,

                    This chart is AWESOME!! Bookmarked and printed out and taped to my wall for future reference. I know I won't need it terribly often, but what a resource!!

                      Thanks Ashley I agree that its not something that one needs very often but it's a lot easier than trying to make all the various conversions when you do want to check something !

                        Justin, this reminds me of a yellow diamond brooch I saw the designer called it Cosmos...I like GGSP here so much better!

                        No, Midge said, I take it back. I wouldnt get a mink coat the first thing. Know what Id do? Id get a string of pearls. Real pearls. Yes, Annabel said, slowly. I think thats a kind of a good idea. And it would make sense, too. Because you can wear pearls with anything.
