    I had the opportunity to visit Justin and his wonderful pearl farm in Savusavu last April. Justin was an incredible host and has so much care of the clean sustainability of the pearl industry. I brought back some of these pearls. They will forever be my favorite pearls.

    And yes, J. Hunter pearls can and do look like that ... I'm a very lucky and grateful lady to have custody of some of the Fiji babies

    Great photos, Judi.

    I picked out these three Fiji drops at PP, but they are the same three colors as the rare Fiji Color cover pearls. It's probably why I adore them.

    J Hunter Fiji farm is on my bucket list to visit once hubby & I are able to visit Polynesia. He's already been talking about visiting Tahiti & Bora Bora so I added Fiji to the list.

    So I have a new wish list item. Fiji Keshi...sigh.
    No, Midge said, I take it back. I wouldnt get a mink coat the first thing. Know what Id do? Id get a string of pearls. Real pearls. Yes, Annabel said, slowly. I think thats a kind of a good idea. And it would make sense, too. Because you can wear pearls with anything.

    Okay, I'll play too Vendor shots, because I'm terrible with a camera, and ... the sun hasn't been seen in PA in way too long.
    First Up: I just had to sort a handful of little Fiji keshi into color ranges. It was nearly impossible, because their colors change with every movement; NO photos bring that to life. Sarah at Kojima then turned them into a wonderful Keshi necklace; one of my favorites.

    Group Shot, Fijis. Matching clasps fro mix, match and length adjustments. Please excuse the & pistachio/green sapphire Tahitian distractions on the right side lol. Workmanship on these done by our own Sarah at Oceans Cove. Name:  Group Fiji Shot.jpg
