Rio Grande is offering a 20% discount on Galatea pearls. The Tahitians are $80 each (9mm) and $88 (10mm), the freshwaters are about half of that.
KaySD, don't know if this helps or not, but you might look at PP for ideas ... they have/had a necklace I bought in the clearance sale. It's a short 18" or so, "stations" or "tin cup" style, only the stations are about 2" of tiny black spinel, interspersed with dark Galatea pearls. At the center there is a loose Galatea pearl dangling charm. My pearls are all the "acorn" carving. Not exactly what you're talking about, but it might get you started If there's not a photo on PP I could take a photo; I love my set (it has matching earrings).
