    Default Where to buy in Florida or Online?

    Hello everyone! My wife's birthday coming up and this time she really wants Tahitian pearl ring. We went out to our local mall to figure out the size and she really likes around 10-12mm pearl size. I found 2-3 websites such as Pure Pearls, Pearl Paradise, and Pearls of Joy. Is there any other good websites on reputable vendors you can recommend? Thanks in advance!

    Those are good sources.

    Another vendor I've bought from is Kamoka Pearls. Their Tahitians come from their own sustainably-run farm.
    https://kamokapearls.com

    I have also bought pearls from ROLAY on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/ROLAY?ref=ss_profile) which is the same seller as pearl_society on eBay. He ships out of Hong Kong.

    While I have not bought from Tahitianpearls.biz, I have read good things about them:

    I'm in Florida. I buy from Pearl Paradise, Pearls of Joy, Kojima, and Kamoka.

    Kamoka has their own pearl farm, and I highly recommend them for ethically sourced, top quality Tahitian pearls.

    I've also bought unusual, unique Tahitian pieces from Kojima Pearls.

    Pearl Paradise and Pearls of Joy have more conventional offerings, but what you see is absolutely what you get.

    All 4 vendors answer e-mails quickly, send extra photos, and are happy to work with you for a special custom piece.

    Lots of great recommendations; you can be certain you'll receive an authentic, beautiful Tahitian Pearl. Love my purchases from Pearl Paradise and Kamoka Pearls.

    I’m also in Florida, and you won’t wrong with any of these retailers! If your wife has a particular piece in mind with specific size, and color for the Tahitian pear ring, PP will work with you on a custom piece!
    Look forward to pictures of your gift!!

    DOH! How could I forget OceansCove on Etsy? I have a beautiful ringed Tahitian and tourmaline bead necklace from her.
