    For that matter, you could replace all 7 end spinels with glass, even the larger bead that is in the middle of the line of spinels. Then you could make your knot after the line of 7 glass beads...

    Gimp size:
    I prefer Fine size gimp (.8mm) rather than Medium. (I think Pattye's gimp is Medium?) It fits more easily through the rings of clasps. I buy it from from Firemountaingems. ...

    Usually those kind of clasps have a little loop inside the cup, through which you pass the needle and thread. When you pass the needle back through the end pearl, the cup snugs up against the pearl.

    I am closing the thread. We are just going around and around on this.

    Feel free to message me but we're done here.

    I disapprove of calling a seller dishonest for following her own return policy. The reason you didn't get your refund was that you wanted to return it after the deadline.

    I get that you don't...

    It may not have anything to do with feedback, maybe not even the money. Maybe she just doesn't want to bother processing returns, filing claims to get back her eBay and PayPal fees, and relisting...

    I don't think we can confirm that one way or the other, since undrilled pearls can also be dyed and since FWP are now being cultured with a bead nucleus.

    This is what I suggest: look at the other...

    Maybe not their loss. Maybe their way to avoid loss.

    When an eBay seller refunds the buyer their original payment, that refund includes the portion that was used for shipping the item to the...

    I'm not saying you are problematic-- I'm saying sellers who don't want returns may view buyers who do returns as problematic.

    I think there is a fundamental difference between large vendors and...

    Per eBay rules, sellers have the right to block buyers for any reason. When a buyer is blocked from buying, they are automatically also blocked from contacting the seller.

    It's not meaningless for the buyer if the buyer can read, on the seller's web page, how they define their grades.

    If they don't define what AA+, AAA etc. mean, then yes, it's meaningless.

    You can share the link, yes.

    Having already seen the link in the PM you sent me, her bright green and very gray pearl studs she has listed are surely dyed, and it would only make sense to dye...

    Now that freshwater pearls are being grafted with bead nucleuses it is harder to tell --especially from photos-- whether any given pearls are FW or SS.

    What a lovely gift to receive from your grandmother!

    Natural pearls are rare and valuable, of course, but we are not able to say what the monetary value of the ring would be. Ultimately an item...
