    The only time I recall eBay cracking down on fraud was for items advertised as Tiffany when they were not; but we all know Tiffany has an army of attorneys, and they forced eBay to take action.

    The freshwaters from POJ are very nice and appear round. Sometimes shape can be a challenge in freshwater pearls. Those are very well matched.
