Re: Lucy and Ethel hit the road.....

4ranchgirl, I can't believe you got Sheri to come too. MovieZombie, my DH is coming, are you sure you don't want to bring your's too. Once he meets us all he may want to come to the ruckus too.

Re: Body Lotion & Pearl Strands

Ennui, When I move over to your neck of the woods, we should have a pearl restringing party. You come over and you can play with my stuff. Once you get the hang of it you will be tearing up everything.

Mr. Pearl Nacre moved to CA in January. I am selling my home in GA before I leave the deep south.

Re: Freshadama vs AAA vs Metallics

Yes there is a difference between Freshadama and AAA. Go to PP's website and look at the education section. These are made from Earring grade pearls, not necklace grade pearls. Freshadama-grade pearls are loose-grade pearls, or pearls that have been selected individually prior to drilling and polish...

Re: Please help! 40th Birthday Gift.

PP has silver blue baroque akoyas in stock. Some think they look silver. They are not as molar shaped as the keshi though.

Freshwater pearls don't come in that color unless they are dyed. You may find some Tahitian Keshi that are gray she might like. Have you looked for them?

Re: Do natural blue akoya pearls fade?

I have two strands of Japanese baby blue baroque akoyas 7-7.5 and 8-8.5 I bought these pearls in 2009. I also have two strands Vietnamese blue akoyas which I purchased in 2012. All the pearls look the same as the day I purchased them. When they are not being worn I keep them in the box they came in....

Re: What looks best with Blue Akoya

No blue stones. Sterling silver or white gold chains would look smashing. If you try to use blue you'll never match the color and the color will look off, you'd be better off using something completely different.

Re: Replacement "Natural" pearl

Really? You're going to remove the diamond? I love the style. The jeweler you're using to do the work on your ring , does he use a laser welder? Pearls can't get hot. It would be a shame to have someone remove the pearl to do the work on your ring.

I was just over inspecting the photos at the other post. Look at the prongs holding the diamond in place. They appear very worn and some look so flattened out , they're ready to fail.

Re: Replacement "Natural" pearl

Beautiful ring. I agree with the others, wear it. If it is really a natural wild pearl the whole thing is nacre and should wear well. Since you don't know where Mel got the ring, it may very well have been changed out in the 100 years with a cultured pearl and stored away by the owner so that is why...
