    I am intrigued by the setting. It is obviously not a commercial setting. At the same time, they do not fit the pearls well at all. You can see metal that shouldn't be visible, the edges of the pearls...

    Budget is always a problem... Alas, for infinite play money.

    For your budget, I would go for a nice pendant. Or you can save a bit more for some circled Tahitians (personally, I love them, as they...

    I think dyed pearls bad rep comes from the fact that nearly all dyed pearls are of awful quality. Personally, I still wear and love a string of "dove grey" dyed keshi.

    As long as they are sold...

    I am drooling over the Tahitians. They look so perfect. I usually see smaller pearls on longer strands and this is just so lux.

    Some art historian think that it was not, in fact a pearl. A pearl that size would have been crazy expensive. I've seen theories that it was a fake or, in fact, metal. The metal guy went into all...

    Dyed pearls get a bad rep because so often dyed pearls are passed off as Tahitians. And because of some truly garish colours out there.

    However, if a dyed strand is sold as a dyed strand and...

    No, you don't need to remove stones for plating, unless they are chemically sensitive stones.

    Those are looking good - just tuck in the tail in the second pearl from the left on the top photo.

    I would try to make the loops a little smaller, so it looks neater and more proportional, but...

    The design looks older than the 70s, to my eyes. However, that does rule out freshies, unless they are replacement.

    My guess is that the pearls are actually a later modification to the ring.

    The clasp looks older costume jewelry but the oval shape of the pearls look like freshwater. I cannot imagine imitations being so off round.

    Strange combination and I am curious

    I wouldn`t even call them imitation. They are some translucent beads which could be a lot of different things.

    That is beautiful.

    The one name that comes to my mind is Jane Theis, in Philadelphia. I think she has restored similar pieces. If she doesn`t do it, she knows everyone in Philadelphia`s...

    The old knots are very stretched out so the restrung strands will be shorter.

    I don't like to criticize other people's work but natural pearls deserve a better stringing job. Having that segment...
