    My worry is the lack of provenance. Tridacna gigas is a protected species and harvesting is illegal except under specific conditions.

    Wasn't this image shared on the forums a couple of years ago? I remember it for being unusual.

    If it has a 1cm diamond, the price is for the diamond and not the pearls. That would be over 3 carats, if round.

    I don't like the first one either, sorry. As stated before, the clasp style clashes with the flower and I don't like how they adapted it for two strands. The pearls are nuggets with a flat side and...

    From you description, I imagine there is a chance that they are natural pearls.

    What a beautiful ring.

    And since I always fixate on small things, I love the delicate diamond halo. Such an unexpected detail.

    Yes, I think you are right. The two center pearl "halves" seem to add up to somewhat more than a whole a pearl.

    Interesting interpretation of the classic pearl necklace by Tasaki.

    I am guessing there is a very good light system to enhance the pearl. I would ask for photos under natural light to compare.

    That is one of the best parts of the love for pearls. Unlike other gemstones, there is so much we can do without specialized tools or long training. Change the stringing, combine with different...

    The photos loaded fine for me.

    My guess would be akoyas. They seem nice and round, not eggy, and a pretty cream colour.

    Considering her personal style, I would not go for the white akoyas. They are beautiful but way too traditional for how you describe her. I would go for something that can fit her "business persona"...

    One of my favourite strands is a dyed dove grey keshi, since blue akoyas aren`t in the budget. As long as the vendor was honest and sold them as dyed, they are another alternative for us.

    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.
