    Default Special Tahitian Pearls

    I've been working with a customer in the UK for some time trying to create his dream set of Tahitian pearls for his wife. The request: top-gem, Tahitian pearls, dark bodycolor, strong peacock overtones.

    I finished it today but posted a picture on Flickr because it will be a very long time before we'll ever be able to do something like this again.

    I stopped by the office to borrow something and I can truly say they were the most beautiful dark tahitian pearls I've ever seen. Great photo!

    The strands ranges from just over 9 to 10 mm. The bracelet is in the 8-9 range, and the earrings are nearly 11 mm. The customer I made this for bought the pair of intense peacock Kamoka pearl earrings a couple months back. He wanted a set that were the same color, but those pearls are really difficult to come by in rounds.
