    Long drops and other baroques might be just a matter of searching (HERE's one) but rounds, buttons... symmetrical shapes are quite a different story, apparently (look HERE) - no idea who has them consistently. Pearl Paradise sounds like a good source for exceptional things...

    I am not sure whether 20mm length is truly 'enormous' for a baroque SS pearl... . I'm wondering what makes a monster for the type myself

    Thanks, Valeria...the price quote on that pair of buttons ($30,000) is certainly eye-opening. I don't think that 20mm+ in length is all that extraordinary - it's the huge diameter that's so hard to find.

    Ha! I knew it looked familiar, but I couldn't put my finger on it. A Molar!
