    Lilpearl, we had long discussions about Akoya pearls on instagram about perfect pearls. A perfect pearl is rare. An Akoya strand with perfect pearls is about 2.5 times more expensive than one with some minor blemishes.
    Your strand has so few that it was remarkable the strand was not more expensive when it was inspected. A rare chance I would say as I judged you would be happy and you are. Your Akoya strand is a very very nice strand. I thank you for the cooperation and understanding.

    Dear Cees, I couldn’t agree more, my necklace is truly remarkable, and I’m very grateful you took the time to look for exactly what I asked. The luster, the size, the uniformity of the pearls, everything is just perfect and so elegant! This is one necklace that I will be wearing often. Thank you!
