    Sven from Augusta Antiques is pretty reliable. He's based in Bali and usually has a small supply of SS pearls on his site. I've bought lots of things from him over the years , tho mainly his Vermeil findings. That said I wouldn't hesitate to buy a pearl from him.

    I think it's probably SS, I purchased from them before. I think for small value play pearls they are ok.

    Beatriz, have you been to the Eastern Trade Winds website? I believe it's a "wholesale" or alternate site for Augustus Collection? Some of the same products, but not all. I've never bought from either.

    Window shopping is dangerous ... especially if you happen to be in the PP vault LOL.

    Augustus Collection has had a number of those strands, but there's one I just adore ... and it's been there forever, sigh ...

    I saw those! Droooool.

    I have so many things on my wish list. I should really stop window shopping online.

    I've admired many a piece on Augustus Collection! There's a strand of mixed color SS keshi they've had for sale for nearly 2 years now ... one of these days, maybe ... Hope you'll show us what you make with your puffy pearly cloud, Beatriz

    Pretty, puffy cloud is a nice description. And, perhaps, a good design starting point.

    This one was an auction. I bid a little over $15 since that was the general closing bids on similar pearls. It was from Augustus Collection. The photo was pretty accurate, although it didn't show the pinkish overtones well. I guess I just don't trust eBay descriptions much - "unheated sapphire", "untreated ruby", etc. I was probably hasty in my comment and I should have left it out, since I am no expert and it is a serious accusation.

    Well I think it's pretty and the price is ok.. and I know you will find something wonderful to do with it ! Just curious .. you try making an offer if that was an option? I've found that an offer of 30% - 25% less than list is often accepted. My other things from Pearllunar arrived..one more pair of the 11mm white buttons..and they are nice...not at all unhappy for 24$.

    I think for $15.00 you had a bit of fun, and got a pretty, puffy cloud of a pearl ... and you will likely make something wonderful out of it ... win win win

    Who was the seller? Are you saying you don't think it is SS, Beatriz? It's a lovely shape.

    It's pretty! As long as you don't have unrealistic expectations, eBay can be a good place to find things.

    I am thinking a ring, since it isn't round and won't be too tall (I hate very tall rings). Alternatively, it will become a pendant.

    Pattye, it was sold as SS but yeah, right. It is bead nucleated and undrilled.
