    Nice, very nice pearls, Pareltje! This nacre colour is a mystery : gold colour is made of metallic yellow with a very little bit of black, this measure is so much thin that it seems incredible nature might succeed to produce it, so pure, and it does...

          Thank you for your compliments, eric, Sanippy.
          Eric, mother nature is interesting, right? She produces a lot of unique colors.
          Bailey, I bought the clasp in a brick and mortar pearl shop in the diamond district of Antwerp.

            I agree you, of course, Pareltje! I explain a bit why I wonder how does nacre produce its colours : nature use two phenomenons to make colours, one is "fixe" colour of something ( by light absorption/emission, giving the white of milk, for exemple), and second by the way of refraction, like colours of butterfly wings. Then, nacre seems to use these two ways, together, to produce such nice colours. That is amazing (and sorry to keep always a physicist curiosity's view about thinks)

                Eric, you have a scientist's approach to pearls.
                Sunseeker, thank you for your sweet words.
