I hope you won't give up on pearls, Jeangrey1.

At any rate, this seller is selling other pearls. I am more concerned whether or not this seller sells real SSP or CFWP at low prices and has resellers. As to buying more pearls, I think I am going to stop and focus on gold and diamond jewelry...

Sadly, there are just too many dishonest sellers out there to begin to police them. The forum here helps us as buyers become informed. The CPAA pearl course, pearlsasone is available at no charge, just the investment of our time, so worthwhile! Jeremy earlier listed the discount code so the course is completely free. (I also have a code you can use.)
