I know this is an old thread, but I am curious if this question was ever answered. I'm looking into a couple of loose [natural] hanadama that will be drilled at PP and placed onto endless, large, white gold hoop earrings. I know my preference while I am building my collection is always white-washed, but for style's sake I am curious why I should be looking into maybe getting the pinked pearls. I mean, those are the ones that are usually more readily available, correct, so maybe they are considered more stylish?
So, I also want to know -
1) Why the big push to 'pink' the pearls? The Natural Whites seem gorgeous the way they are (to me), white.
2) When did 'pinking' start?
4) Will we see less 'pinking' in the future? Is the demand for natural-white pearls high enough to justify a change in Pinking policy?
