    Lovely hauls everyone - looking spectacular!

    Are there any copies of the Pearl Book out of those 10 left for sale? I tried to purchase online but they wouldn't accept overseas credit cards (what?!?)

    Purr: Haha and of course my motto is “more is still not enough!!!”

    That needs to me the PG motto, too.


    Wait? There were books? GAH! How did I miss this? I know Marina was told she got the last one as a birthday present. OK, I just ordered one on Amazon. Ridiculously expensive for a book, but then I just bought pearls that cost way more than the book. And I'm a book-a-holic. Must have book.

    LOVING seeing everyone’s treasures. It’s funny, even though we were together this weekend, I left with only a vague idea of what each of us got! Great idea for a thread, jeg!

    Here is my loot.

    Saturday I stalked the Kojima Pearl table and picked up the following:
    1. another (yippee!) waterfall necklace, this time with buttery South Sea pearls
    2. an ombré Tahitian/freshwater Keshi rope with a darling sea shell pendant
    2. freshwater Keshi ring with green gemstones (I think chrome diopside)

    When we went to Pearl Paradise, I bought:
    1. 3 delicious golden South Sea pearls
    2. 2 Fiji Keshi

    Kojima Pearl waterfall necklace

    3 golden South Sea pearls (2 smaller ones are 10-11mm and destined for earrings, larger single is 11.9mm and will be set as pendant)

    MSC, I tried to buy the book, too, but the system rejected my "foreign credit card"! Oh well....

    BWeaves, wait, you found the same book on Amazon? Can you post the link? I'm not seeing it.

    Regarding the book: Splendor & Science of Pearls

    Amazon has one used book ($150) and one new book ($199):

    https://www.amazon.com/Splendour-Sci.../dp/B012ACLHFW

    And then there's another link with one more new book ($149), although the cover is in black and white and not color:

    I dropped off a few of my treasures this morning for setting. I returned with three pairs of goldens, Kojima keshi earrings, an octo-mermaid pendant from Sheri, and four loose pearls. The four loose are two golden drops, a blue Sea of Cortez, and a blue and brown Fiji pearl. Of course, the blue pearls that glowed in the Southern California sun look much grayer in rainy Minnesota.

    These will be stud earrings.

    These will be drop earrings.

    The glamour shot of my Kojima earrings. I'm having the ear wire changed out for a slightly heavier gauge in 18kt gold.

    haha, I ordered Robert's book earlier today too! Here's the link I used if anyone's interested:

    https://www.amazon.com/Splendor-Scie...+science+pearl

    GIA is sold out of this book, and Robert mentioned not likely to have more.

    Thanks for the link. Just ordered using it, and it said only two books, now one, are left.

    battah, Purr, baby nurse, and Red -- thanks for showing your treasures! You've selected so many delightful pieces (some of which I never saw because they were snapped up so quickly!! haha). I came home with a variety including a Sea of Cortez mabe, a Lake Kasuminga pendant, a Kamoka pendant, some silvery blue-green ringed Tahitians and a selection of GSSs from Pearl Paradise. I am sooo blessed! ..photos to follow

    I am loving looking at everyone's treasures! Keep them coming!

    Battah, you have to know that I actually choked on my tea when I scrolled onto that souffle. Thankfully I'm in my car and I don't think anyone saw.

    LOL lary, I feel terrible for being responsible for that!! (but I admit, I giggled a little...). Hopefully you didn't do a spit-take!

    The pearl is freaking amazing. I think I spent 20 minutes digging through those pearls, and I kept coming back to that one. It's perfect all over, plus the back side is a little bit flat, so I think it'll sit nicely as a ring. Working on some ideas...
