    How far are you willing to reveal [pearl farmer / trader] / to pay [pearl buyers]?

    I read somewhere this mussel species produces pearls naturally. You are probably still more likely to enjoy them as a meal rather than with mussels inside, but it should be an interesting experiment.

    A new type of pearl!

    What is the word for black magic woman in Polynesian? Pele pearls comes to my mind, but that's a man.

    Treasure or Trash ( South Sea Baroque pearls)

    They look like nice, satiny, South Sea baroque pearls. I am not sure what the current price would be for such a strand, but 20 yrs ago prices for such pearls were most likely higher than today and the priece tag probably reflects retail store price not internet provider (in its infant shoes at...
