    sample sale purchases

    They look fabulous Seoulite. I didn't know S. Korea isn't big about pearls, I actually might be moving there at the end of the year! I guess, the closest huge gem show would be in Hong Kong then.

    south sea siopao

    I'm with PD, hearing the word Siopao relating to Pearls is unfamiliar as well. It looks like this is something coined in the PI as far as I searched online. It looks to be more of button freshwater pearls. Please post pictures!

    What strand do y'all think this is?

    Lol yes my dearest Pattye, not a very strong color. My mom has wanted a palest gold south sea pearl and this came upon my suggestions.
