Now that I have read your entire site and visited all the u tube clips I would love to go on that type of vacation. I actually would love to do the procedure with my background. A thrill to be sure. I am rugged and not afraid of grand in mud. What a thrill.
Hope you accept my invite. Pearl Angel
New book, The French Blue, will be out in early November. Follows the adventures of Jean-Baptiste Tavernier through the 17th Century gem trade including a couple of chapter on the Gause, the pearl beds, pearl diving off Bahrain, Persian Gulf. Love it, if Pearl-Guide or Pearl Paradise would do a review or perhaps publish the diver excerpt. Has Pearl Paradise got a book section yet?
I just wanted to let you know that your judjement about Sharon in Hongqiao was right. The SS I bought in April for 1500 euro each were evaluated by a SS dealer in Athens for 500 euro each.He said that the shape of them was not baroque he called it "off shape" Does such shape exists? he said that their colors champagne and gold come only form Philippines. Sharon's certificate defines them Austalian.Also that these pearls are very low quality. I have posted the pearls at the show your pearls forum under Baroque: nature's small miracles.
I have been a PGR since the beginning of last year, I should have asked your advice before I went to Honqiao.Now I have to accept a big loss. Anyway, I asked my son, Nickolas, who is doing his MBA at Tsinghua university in Beijing to pay her a visit and explain the situation.
I would like to thank you for your kind concern. Thank you for your time
Hey Jeremy.... I was beyond bored this afternoon and decided to peruse the local craigslist ads for pearls. I saw this listing and recognized your dear pearls. Thought you'd like to see someone appreciates your photography. :) http://atlanta.craigslist.org/jwl/1038160707.html Dana
I wonder whether you could tell me whether pearl vendors operating on Alibaba and having common American names and claiming to be part of a pearl farming operation are working independently or as a part of a pearl factory affiliated with a farm, or how that generally works?
Thanks for the gorgeous Freshadamas! I received my order today and they are stunning. I wonder, though, if you can make an extender for them so that the strand can be a 20 in for some versatility? I considered sending the 18 in strand back, but I can't part with them! The pearls are so pretty and perfect.
