Is this south sea pearls/ salted water pearls or fresh water pearls?

    Yes, but that is the problem-- it's a photo. Which can be manipulated. And it may not be a photo of the actual item you would receive.

    I think you did well to cancel. If you're going to go there anyway, I agree that you are better off buying in person.

      If you can buy in person, that is the best! I'm glad you were able to cancel and get an immediate full refund.

        I completely agree with BAS. You will enjoy choosing in person! Then you can take a photo to show us here.

          IF they are real pearls... Pattye has a point that they may be shell pearls. The problem here is not just in being wrong about freshwater and saltwater pearls. Plus if the seller so readily gives a refund, it tells me they know they are cheating. Sorry, just the way I see it.

            Pearl Dreams, BAS, pattye, KarinK, Thank you very much for your support and advice.

            I wholeheartedly agree with Pearl Dreams saying 'it's a photo. Which can be manipulated. And it may not be a photo of the actual item you would receive.' I am so glad it is over. I already own multiple of beautiful strands of pearls already. I don't need to rush for another one. Please find attach some pearls that I own. Hope you enjoy them

            Have a wonderful day.

                  Are those tahitian studs on rose gold posts? The necklaces are also lovely! The second strand shows a very strong blue orient on my computer screen, which makes them look like they are little moons. Just lovely.

                    The second strand is blue/silver akoyas? Amazing colours! What is the darker strand, Tahitians? Thanks for sharing, drvery.

                          Thanks so much Pearl Dreams, KarinK, Jersey Pearl, Tucs, Katbran, GemGeek!

                          My crush with pearls turns out not to be a 'crush' but 'true love' I am going to post some more photos of my beloved Tahitian strand in the Tahitian strand forum, and the Madama strand, it will be my husband's Christmas gift to me this year. So I will take pictures more after I receive the gift and will post it in the Akoya forum

                            That Madama strand...well it's just spectacular ! It's changed my mind about round white pearls I think

                              looks like you can let go of the order without trouble and second thought.. I think I have seen the first photo which look like imitations on Ebay.. I used it to explain differences between available pearls to a customer who asked to advise on freshwater strands via Ebay..

                              round and too perfect in matching color and luster all around.. when in doubt.. take your smile somewhere else..

                              Good to see you already have some beautiful pearls to rock
