    Natural Color, Deep Gold, High Luster, South Sea Pearls from Pearl Paradise

    There is a bit of a story to these pearls… I first asked Jeremy if he could source a pair, back in January 2012. The first ‘nearly pair’ appeared fairly quickly after that, but they were not quite ‘deep’ enough. Another pair appeared, but still not quite right – then Jeremy took the search out...

    Unusual Necklace

    I quite like this - it's kind of unusual as the colours are not uiniform and the pearls at the front are quite large it sold at Bonhams in April for GBP 36K - I wonder if that was a bargain - well, maybe a bargain in that world, if you know what I mean.... pearls are 4.2mm-8.5mm, single-cut...

    Hanadama Akoya Necklace and Earrings

    These are the pearls that probably started the whole ?pearl thing? off they were bought many moons ago as a Christmas present for BV I think they are still kind of the senior pearls in the pearl drawer, as they are definitely the oldest and are very shiny !! There has been a bit of pushing...

    Exotic Metallic Freshwater Earrings

    These were mentioned on a recent PG thread and reminded me?.. they were also bought from Jeremy in the summer of 2009 they started as a ?private PP sale? (limited access prior to the public sale) it was kind of fun, as the pearls on the page were all ?one of a kind??, e.g. they were all made...

    Kamoka Intense Peacock Earrings

    Tahitian Dark Peacock (Gem) Set from Pearl Paradise

    this is kind of an ‘anniversary’ thread, as these pearls were a Christmas present for my wife back in 2009, and just made it via FedEx – there was lots of snow that year….. there is a very long story to these pearls – a bit too long for P-G, but they were put together personally by Jeremy over...

    Tahitian Light Peacock and Diamonds

    This is actually Chapter 3 (final chapter !) of the earlier Sea of Cortez and Tahitian Peacock Pears threads...... my wife had a pair of her Grandmother's antique white-gold and diamond earrings that were set with Akoyas that had not fared very well over time, and we thought we would try to...

    Tahitian Peacock Pears

    This is really Chapter 2 of the earlier Sea of Cortez Earrings thread There were a few problems along the way with the SoC, and I wanted a 'Plan B' in case they didn't come off, so I thought of asking Jeremy and Mia to put together a Tahitian pair - that looked like 'Pears' By the way, does...
