  • South Sea vs Akoya size comparison - fun photo :)

    Someone wanted to compare an 8 mm strand with a 16 mm so I took this iPhone shot today. This saves time explaining why double the size in millimeters is bit more than double the mass of the pearls

                Wow, that really tells the story, Jeremy! However, the older post by Pearl Dreams that mathematically explained how the volume increased was amazing, maybe I can find it and add it here.
