    Gemandpearlover , thank you and I'm sure your excitement will be overwhelmed with the quality of Pearl Paradise purchase! Just as a note, I wouldn't advise against all Etsy vendors (not so sure about Ebay, Ebay is more difficult these days) - Etsy is just a platform, and there are enough honest...
