    There is a pair of souffle/diamond earrings on the PP page. I don't know if they are new or if that other pair was returned? i remember that several here were interested in them.

    Are the clasps the same so that you can connect the strands to make a rope? That's what I do. Then I still have the separate necklaces, as well.

    Thanks for the experiment, GemandPearlLover. I always appreciate a good visual.

    Isn't that the nacre thickness of a Tahitian? Or was, before the standards were relaxed?

    I've noticed that when strands and earrings are sold as sets, they are usually the same size.

    I tend to coordinate by pearl type -- all Akoyas, all SS, etc. But my personal style tends to be...

    I vaguely recall that Jeremy said the nacre on souffle pearls is surprisingly thick -- as we can see from the little H "geode" collections.

    I imagine that how the pearls are stored would be a...

    And I thought I heard somewhere that part of the pearling process involves rotating the mollusk, as well.

    I have some Tahitian drop shaped earrings that are extremely well matched for shape,...

    Thanks, pattye and Charlotta. That's kind of what I was thinking; I have some 11mm WSS, and they seem heavy by the end of the day.

    Are the Fiji pearls naturally chocolate? I've noticed that a couple of our online vendors no longer carry chocolate Tahitians, which are usually irradiated.

    There are so many factors to consider. I recently saw some "battleship gray" Tahitians that had really beautiful reflective qualities due to their lustre and perfect shape.

    I was surprised to see the email in my inbox. It's usually in spam.
    There is also a tab on the PP home page for New Specials.

    I learn so much from you! Thank you for the explanation.

    I was once at a trunk show, and I casually asked the vendor if they had "gem grade" pearls. They looked at me funny, like I was FBI or...

    If you just want to look at pearls to get a feel for what you like, you can try department stores like Macy's, or if you're brave enough, Tiffany's. The prices will be very high, but looking is free....
