    Default Tahitians? Type and repair questions

    We just picked these up and they were billed as Tahitian but they look a little to eggy for that to me. Dyed FWP? Either way we didn't pay much just curious.
    Also does anyone have a suggestion for an adhesive to re-affix one pearl that has come loose? My wife likes them to wear to work but I want to fix them before the lockdown ends. As always , thanks for the help!

    Yes, dyed freshwaters with very pretty colorations. For glue you can use two part epoxy, which you may already have, or super glue. I do let my glue jobs dry an extra day for good measure.

    These look like dyed freshwaters to me.

    I figured, but like I say she likes them for knocking around/work. Everything else she has is a little too formal.
