CortezPearls I’m no expert either Douglas :). Just a jewellery enthusiast who has some surface knowledge about gemstone. The water is so deep in the gemstone market. It really takes a good willed vendor to fully disclose the stuff they are selling. Many treatments are only recognisable in lab environments which makes it quite difficult for consumers.

They are sort of pretty with the black metal, gold...I did see a ring on Instagram yesterday that I thought was pretty. Looks like they are trying to reach a bigger group of customers. And I am happy that they used slightly dropshaped pearls and some different colors in the bracelet. Sometimes their pieces are to perfect and don't look real, always pretty but unreal non the less. That's just my opinion, I know lots of people love their pearls.

CortezPearls lol those are halloween pearls. Great to see unconventional designs.

In a video I watched before Robert mentioned Mikimoto’s black pearls were supplied by Robert Wan. Not sure if it is still the case. Just feels weird to buy Tahitian pearls from a pearl company specialises in akoyas. Though they are lovely contemporary designs

:lol: echo I hear you!
Mikimoto slowly evolved into a fashion brand, now selling many different kinds of luxury items. Their jewelry line grew to encompass South Seas and Tahitian pearls, but the name just brings out a screaming "Akoya!" on our minds...always.
I agree with you...lovely contempo pieces!
