natural pearls pacific : FANTASTIC !

This is one of my favorite threads! I am so glad to keep seeing more of these special pearls. Such saturated colors! We would barely know about them, if not for you, so thanks!!!.
Loloperle..these are sooo beautiful! I have a question... maybe you can help? I have this little antique brooch with unusual colour pearls, and after reading this thread and seeing the AMAZING pipi pearls, I wonder could these be pipi pearls? The brooch is maybe circa 1900... image.jpg
Loloperle...thank you for your reply, I will investigate further. The many mysteries of pearls.... If only they could speak! :)
