    Default Loot!

    I did something I do not usually do at pearl auctions. I bought a large lot of 'A' grade cirlces (Poe Rava Nui auctions grade lots A-D). While I also purchased a lot of round pearls (nearly 10,000 total), this lot caught my eye. It was actually one of the most heavily bid lots. I shook the bid box before bidding and overbid the floor price by about 20%. We won!

    Not really sure what to do with them yet. There are about 1200 of them and they range in size up to about 13 mm.

    The colors are what drew me to this lot. It is just so rare to have the opportunity to buy such a large lot of 'A' grade peacocks separated in this fashion.

    I *love* them. They have exactly what I admire in a Tahitian - color and quirkiness. I can't wait to see what you do with them!

    Question for Mr Shepherd: would this be sufficient to offer them to public?

    Okay, so I'm in the queue as well... maybe a fabulous matching pair as earrings, then a similar one (but larger, of course) for a single pendant?? Okay, and another set of 3 with different overtones??

    Please please Jeremy? After all, you did show them to us.... don't tease too much!!
