    I'm too slow. I seem to be getting the launch emails (but not the preview ones, if they exist). Time before last, by the time I quickly scrolled through all of the offerings to see what was there,...

    I prefer the Pearls of Joy strand as well. The PS strand colour doesn't bother me so much, as more rose toned strands tend to look better on me. It's how egg shaped many of the pearls are that...

    VR1, I have decided that I am also not a fan of peacock tahitians under most lighting conditions. They just never look colourful to me. What I DO love are light body coloured tahitians that have...

    I'd just say that the earring that is photoshopped onto the model's ear has been made to look MUCH larger than a typical (8 mm) akoya pearl would be, so you may want to take a look at actual pearls...

    I've done both too. For new pieces where I've had a receipt, I've used that. For older pieces that may have changed in value, or for pieces that I haven't had a receipt, I've taken things in to be...

    I was going to say that I have seen imitation pearls go yellow, not real ones. The plastic darkens and eventually looks more like cream/tan colored beads than pearls.

    I find that seeing a piece on a real person gives me a sense of scale. Ideally, I'd love to see it on a normal sized person and not a model (mainly because models are often so tiny that what looks...

    Thanks. The link didn't pop up for me. And then I refreshed the page and it was there. It's not a big deal - I'm only looking not buying.

    Tahitian overtones are tough, because they are hard to see in direct light and tend to only pop in indirect or dim light. Both your earrings and your necklace are very high luster (and the necklace...

    I’ve bought from them as well, and have had no problem with returns. I’ve never been unhappy with the quality of their pieces. They have a 15% discount on right now.

    I can’t say whether that strand is representative of AA+ pearls across vendors or not, but those were not great Akoyas. You can do better. I suspect that with your budget you will find much better...

    Were they described as shell pearls? Those are faux and would be very heavy. I’d suggest maybe taking them to a jeweler who sells pearls and compare them (or have them take a look).
