Re: Newbie would love advice on Emerald Purchase

Minou gave solid advice. Advice that would be given REGARDLESS of the seller on this forum. I don't think this thread is the place for this conversation. Scarlett - if you don't care about treatment, then buying from a private party is just fine. If you want full disclosure on treatments, I'd sugges...

Re: Starting a budget for Tahitians -- would love advice!

I'd also add that you should try a few different strands when you purchase. You may find that what you *think* you like, doesn't like you. When I was shopping for my strand, I thought I wanted one thing, but ended up falling in love with something completely different because it looked so much bette...

Re: Are they akoyas?

I'll definitely give them a more thorough bath when I pull them apart. Since they are graduated, that should be an interesting endeavor to keep them in order.

Re: Are they akoyas?

thanks pearlsngems! I had always thought that pinking was done post drilling which is why I was looking for pink around the drill holes.

I'll take better photos today and post them later. I don't have much invested in this so it's no skin off my nose either way... I'm just curious about them.

Re: Are they akoyas?

Thanks naria and pearlsngems. I was very certain that they aren't faux - I just don't know how to tell freshwater from akoya. :)) I also didn't know that pinking would be done pre-drilling. Good to know! I think the blue you're seeing may be the blue shirt I was wearing when I snapped the photos.

Are they akoyas?

I picked up this vintage graduated pearl necklace the other day. They were sold to me as akoyas - I honestly wouldn't know the difference either way! How can you tell? They are a lovely cream body color with pinkish overtones. I don't see any pink around the drill holes so it doesn't look like they ...

Re: Can you please help me find a spessartite?

I know you said your budget is $1k, but if you can flex it even a little, I'd suggest looking at Athena's spess listed on the bistro.
