    Can you feel the crack when you run your fingernail over it?

    I have a fireball with a crack and was told that it could not be drilled, so I suspect your crack happened after the fact and possibly...

    I suspect some special lighting was used. Shall we send a request that they photograph the pearls against a white paper towel? ;)

    I'm considering a casual necklace as well -- are y'all using bead bumpers instead of knots? Seems like it would be very quick and easy.

    I recently purchased an inexpensive multi-quartz necklace...

    There are also Fiji pearls -- https://www.fijipearls.com/. The Duchess of Sussex was gifted with a multicolor strand when the royals toured Fiji. You can find photos with Google.

    Currently listed for $79.99 on eBay? That one? ;)

    Natasha, you may spend some time searching the 'net, or you can contact Mikimoto directly. They may have some information on the clasp.

    Larger pearls are heavier, something to keep in mind.

    My long strand (30"? I forget) is graduated. I like that it always hangs correctly.

    Do you mean multicolor? When I think "ombre," I think of the way the pearls are strung, from dark to light and back again, as opposed to different colors strung together.

    I'd also like to speak up...

    Pearl Paradise shows diamond pave clasps and diamond rondelles on their website. They've done custom work for many people, I'm sure you won't have any problems.

    I've known other people who buy commercial jewelry and then have it reset with better pearls. I can think of Ann King orchid earrings, for example.

    I've had sellers regret for things I've sold on eBay -- and I simply remind myself of the reasons why I sold it. I'd rather have sellers regret than buyers remorse. :)

    I agree, it looks like a photo from a travel magazine.

    But, shouldn't "pearl dairy" have milk-white pearls? (j/k, I love a good typo). :D

    There are some who buy an 18" strand and have a couple of pearls removed for drop earrings. Just a thought. But yes, it's an excellent suggestion to buy earrings at the same time.
