    Please help me to choose Tahitian pearls

    I am amazed how different pearls can look in different lights. I would have your vendors (if possible) take photos of the prospective pearls in different lighting conditions, including outdoors and indoors. I also appreciate it when vendors have the pearls against a "less white" background...

    PP Oct Sale Pearls

    Hello Bailey; I also have a parcel pickup spot across the border. I think the hassle, time, gas, etc, is worth it. I have saved considerable money.
