    Eric, mother nature is interesting, right? She produces a lot of unique colors.

    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)

    Bailey, I bought the clasp in a brick and mortar pearl shop in the diamond district of Antwerp.

    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...

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

    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.

    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!)

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