    Oh my goodness Douglas !

    That is amazing and gorgeous pearl. The color and luster are spectacular. Truly a gem of the sea....or should I say... Sea of Cortez!

    That is a WOW!

    To share my cortez naturals, that I got from Druzy Design. Yes, they are tiny! The wire wrapping was done by Iris, at Antiqua (10922 W Pico Blvd, right near PP!):

    It is! I think this will be the BEST pearls I will get to see in this Lifetime (of this particular variety of pearl oyster). It is fit for a King or Queen

    Less spectacular but still a nice find today
    A fisherman brought me a pearl for inspection...perfectly ROUND white pearl from the "Mexican Black Pearl" (Pinctada mazatlanica), with good enough specs...but nothing like that AMAZING drop shaped one I posted before...
    Measures 8.7 mm and weighs in at 4.4 carats...

    That’s such a pretty pearl. When I think about it it must have taken years to get a matched strand. I am grateful that we have cultured pearls today in so many varieties and colors so that I can play with them.
