    Excellent strategy 8mm - the colours are all so different on skin that its best to try on some colours. It is true that GSS can be hard to find in stores as they are quite expensive and frankly don't suit everyone the way that white pearls might. They are easy to find in stores in HK etc or in one of the big high ends Pearl company stores but you may have to search a bit. Also, companies can say that a particular pearl is a dark gold when in fact it's more of a medium gold. . so it's important to know what you are looking at and the true range of gold colour.

      Also, I expect some dark gold pearls are darker/lighter than other dark gold pearls. (Where does "22k" end and "24k" begin?)

      In addition, darker gold color isn't necessarily the best for everyone.
      The best color is the one that flatters you.

      I think it's good to take your time and enjoy the hunt.

        After 3 years of searching high and low, finally I found that the darkest gold suits my complexion best. The other shades they just dissappear on my skin. Many people can wear blue pearls nicely but they again disappear on my skin. Maybe I have to find the strongest blue. Another pic of my favorite gssp. Sorry, the picture is sideways. My phone does it no matter what I do. Click image for larger version

                I love that strand so much, Parelje! It looks great on you. Dark golds work best on me, too.

                          Thanks ladies for your kind compliments.
                          Battah, I'm sure dark gold will suit your complexion and the color will pop on your skin.

                            Hi I am a new member of this forum. I was hoping to, select a tahitian strand, but somehow I am swept up with pp gold south sea Pearl sale. I don't want to be disappointed with the color . Can I get a tutorial on the colors when ordering on the Internet? Am I correct in assuming when the description says 24kt gold that that is the deepest color? Any help would be most appreciated.
                            (I've been swooning over all the beautiful photos posted here!)

                              Yes, 24K is darkest. Some vendors use the 14k, 18K etc. categories, others use light-medium-dark, but remember that the colors are made by the oysters, not humans, so in actuality the colors exist along a continuum, from lighter to darker.

                              In addition to the color, there may be overtones. Pure Pearls has some great information about this (scroll down to the section on GSS pearls.)
                              https://www.purepearls.com/pearl-jew...vertones.html:

                              Also, darker gold color is costlier (because more rare) but may not be the best for every skin tone.

                                So beautiful. Thank you for sharing. Would love a piece with these colors, but probably beyond my price range. Enjoy your beautiful pearls!
