    Funny you all seem to be in agreement with the middle pair. I asked for 3 photos to be sent to me so I could see the difference in type and size...
    Top Pair - South Sea size 8.00-8.50
    Middle Pair - Hanadama Akoya 8.00-8.50
    Bottom Pair - Hanadama Akoya 7.50-8.00

    anyway, I just ordered the 8.00-8.50 size Hanadama Akoya pearls from Pearls of Joy (pretty much the middle picture)

    When they come in, I will post them :-)

    My eyes gravitated to the middle pair too without seeing anyone's choice!

    Well I bit the bullet and ordered a pair of earrings. Ironically everyone on here seemed to be in agreement with the middle pair, which is what I had in mind to order.
    I ended up ordering the Akoya Hanadama grade sized 8.00-8.50 from Pearls of Joy I apologize if the photos are not the greatest, they were taken with my cell phone. I did try to put them against a white background (aka a white ring box) as I read that they photo better against white?

    I hope my mom likes them, I kind of actually love them! They also came with that Certification thing & an appraisal from Kevin - not sure if that is of any use though?

    Those glow!!! They're gorgeous. Yes, keep the certificate. I don't think the "real price" is good for anything but insuring, but I don't think you need to insure these.
