    Default Still looking to buy a strand

    The pearl source and American pearl have similar products I'm interested in. Who is better to deal with?

    I haven't dealt with either of these mentioned companies. You will find a large selection of Tahitians at PearlParadise.com. Call them for specific requirements; excellent customer service at PP!

    I bought once from American Pearl, but didn't like what I received, but I also picked a very inexpensive pearl. I haven't dealt with Pearl Source.

    For Tahitians, my favorites have come from Kamoka (you're dealing with the actual pearl farmers), Kojima Pearl for creative designs, Pearl Paradise for large selection, and Pearls of Joy.

    I would not purchase from either of the retailers you mentioned, rskIf . If you are looking for quality Tahitians at a fair price, I would choose Pearl Paradise or Kojima Pearl. If you want a gorgeous strand straight from the source, Kamokapearls.com is the place to go. They farm pearls sustainably in French Polynesia. These three vendors sell beautiful pearls and their business practices are above reproach. Hope you find your dream strand
