    Next, my four Fiji pearls matched for color to yellow gold, red gold, green gold, and palladium chains.

    As you can probably tell, I gravitate to the intense colors of the Fiji pearls.

    Justin, those fuscia pearls are amazing. Absolutely stunning.
    Red, I can't wait to see the end result! Those colors are so stunningly intense!

    Red - very very cool Fiji pearl lariat.
    My wife pointed out I spelt Fuschia - wrong and my computer tells me this is the right way.
    LM: Bracelet - is fun for me to look at. Light plays such an important role in pearl colours.

    June 2016 Hong Kong show I ran into Michael Hahn - who used to buy from our auctions. It was fun to catch up, all aspects of pearling in my life have / are / still challenging and fun. Anyways, as we talked he reached into his pocket and pulled out this golden drop. He had purchased this pearl and its "partner" in one of our auctions, and asked if we might be able to find a match. I snapped a few pictures. I look at this pearl and it amazes me. He said his client sent him with strict order's to hunt me down and find a match - I can see why. I love these relationships and the fact this pearl means so much to someone - i will find one in our Oct harvest and send it on its way - wonderful pearl.

    Breathtaking golden drop pearl, Justin. Perfect shape and sensual colors. Love the subtle rainbow of colors on the lustrous surface. It is easy to understand why someone would fall madly in love with it.

    Wish you good luck finding a match to that stunning golden drop, Justin ... Someone really loves that pearl ... as we all love the Fiji pearls we were lucky to adopt at the ruckus! Jeremy gave me a few of the shells you sent, and I showed them to my grandson (age just 9) ... he asked if he could have one, and spent 20 minutes choosing the "Most special color one, MomMom!" He is sound asleep in our camper now, but asked that I tell you "THANKS! " for sending the shells

    Unbelievable drop pearl, Justin. I can't say I have a favorite Fiji pearl color - I love the mixture of colors together. Although, if I had a pair of those golden drops or fuscia rounds, either could very well become my favorite color!

    The fuchsia pearls are gorgeous, as is that golden drop!

    (As to the spelling of fuchsia, I found this:
    "...the Fuchsia plant was named after Leonhart (or Leonhard) Fuchs who was one of the founding fathers of botany..."

    CathyKeshi tell your grandson he is most welcome and we will get more for him.
    I am not at the farm but in the capital city of Suva, staying in an apartment we share with friends.
    Noticed she has a bunch of our shells around. One of them has the MOP colour that would / could produce that pearl.
    Our shells are pretty special - and we do put in a ton of time testing, trialling, researching and failing..... but we do win a few battles.
    Environmental conditions certainly play a role in colours - food, stress associated with......... (so many you don't know)But we certainly put in the effort to produce something unique.

    Here is that shell.

    Such amazing colours, I feel spoiled after seeing Fiji pearls, they make Tahitian pearls look less appealing nowadays.
    Great design Red.
