    Rainbow Matched Pairs

    Hi lary and wdw. These pairs here are sold. If I ever post pearl pictures on PG they are usually pieces that are already called for. I think this is a nice way to approach posting pictures on the forum - it feels more authentic to me that way - and I know everyone else appreciates it as well...

    Some marvelous peacock colors

    HI wdw, The ones you bought are a slightly different quality. They are AA+ whereas the ones referenced above were AAA. It does make a difference in the overall quality and color. Just posting it to be clear. :)

    A Special Pair

    From my understanding, E6000 is "jeweler's cement" and is a different product than superglue. I have heard it is more reliable in the long run and isn't prone to cracking. The superglue that has helped for me on projects in the past is good 'ole "Loctite." Hope this helps!
