    Chinese freshwater pearls, from the shape. They seem to have nice luster although you might want to pick of a few duds. They are all nacre so you can wear them without worry.

    Oh, now I see your picture!

    No, there is a lot of room for the pearl to move and rub against the metal. That is not oxidation. You will have that problem no matter what metal you use. I would look...

    To be tarnish resistant, Argentium needs to be heat treated, to create the germanium coating. Any wire that is sold as dead soft hasn't been heat treated.

    If it is stuck inside the pearl, you will need to drill it out with a metal drill.

    I am intrigued by the setting. It is obviously not a commercial setting. At the same time, they do not fit the pearls well at all. You can see metal that shouldn't be visible, the edges of the pearls...

    Budget is always a problem... Alas, for infinite play money.

    For your budget, I would go for a nice pendant. Or you can save a bit more for some circled Tahitians (personally, I love them, as they...

    I think dyed pearls bad rep comes from the fact that nearly all dyed pearls are of awful quality. Personally, I still wear and love a string of "dove grey" dyed keshi.

    As long as they are sold...

    I am drooling over the Tahitians. They look so perfect. I usually see smaller pearls on longer strands and this is just so lux.

    Some art historian think that it was not, in fact a pearl. A pearl that size would have been crazy expensive. I've seen theories that it was a fake or, in fact, metal. The metal guy went into all...

    Dyed pearls get a bad rep because so often dyed pearls are passed off as Tahitians. And because of some truly garish colours out there.

    However, if a dyed strand is sold as a dyed strand and...
