I have seen pictures of some faceted Tahitian pearls that I really liked. Does anyone know where I can find good quality faceted Tahitian pearls (I am looking for a pair for earrings)?
Do you mean pearls that were nucleated with a faceted bead, as opposed to a round bead?
Or do you mean pearls that were round and then the nacre was faceted to give flat surfaces all over the pearl?
Thanks a lot - this was very helpful! Now I guess I just have to find someone who can sell me two loose pearls.
There is only one company and one person that does this work in Japan. There are other cheaper versions out there, but they are not anywhere near the quality of Komatsu-san's work. They typically have a booth at the Hong Kong show and the pearls are definitely expensive, but each is really a work of art.
