Dear Patty, I recently purchased a vintage 14k Mikimoto Pearl Brooch on an auction website paid almost $700. The website states visible glue on the Pearl. I examined the brooch carefully, it does have MG K14 hallmark on the brooch. On the back of some pearls do have noticeable yellow glue than the other pearls. All pearls do appear to be light cream in bright luster. But some of the pearls are not in a perfect condition, you can see tiny blemishes on the pearls. Do you think it’s possible for someone to switch pearls?
Thanks, Pattye! I'm hoping that they'll go with spring around the corner. BTW -- I saw the strand of silver-pink keshi in your artfire shop. I think they'll be great in a project that I'm working on. Are those ones that you've picked up from John Tu as well? Are they as lustrous IRL as they appear in the photos?
Hi Pattye, saw you logged in and thought I would say hello!
Pattye, thank you for the photos of the pearls you sold me, which I have posted in an album under my profile. I want everyone to know how fantastic your knotting is and how glorious the pearls are. Truly you are the Mistress of Pearls and I would recommend you to anyone without a moment's hesitation. Thank you so much!!!
