Re: Mother of preal?

I guess I'll bite. Why are you asking the ladies of the pearl forum what a anonymous man made stone is? Mother of pearl is shell and it's not man made. I would go to a local gemologist or mineral show if they come to your area. They may have some idea what you have.

Re: PP out of drop Tahitians for earrings

Have you considered using round pearls for your earrings? I used them with the blossom settings and I love them. I hope you do slow down and not rush this process. If you don't see something you like wait until just the perfect pair appear, otherwise you won't love your new earrings.

Re: Diamond Quality for PP Jewelry?

Nacrelover, I'm curious about your answer to bsomlo, too. Also how do the Romantic setting compares to those two, in terms of swing and sparkle? The diamonds are more noticeable in the Eternal settings since they are larger and their are more of them. All the findings swing and dangle the same with...

Re: Diamond Quality for PP Jewelry?

Nacrelover -- how do you like the Allure finding? I have been wanting to use it for a while now. I've used the Eternal but find the lines of the Allure, well, alluring. The diamonds in the Eternal semi mounts are larger than the Allure. The pearl seems more well ballanced in the Eternal settings si...

Re: Question about Edison Pearls

The Edisons seem to come in different textures and glossyness. The pink pendant has a very glossy surface which does not show up in the photo as in real life. Beautiful pearls and beautiful chain. How is that sort of chain called? I've been looking for something "rigid" like that for a wh...

Re: Help Please! Earring detached

Clean the post and the pearl to remove all glue residue. Mix equal parts and with a pin put some glue in the drill hole and a small amount on all sides of the post. Install the post in the hole and wipe all excess off. Set aside overnight. http://www.riogrande.com/Product/Epoxy-330-Bottles/206044?Po...

Re: Custom Cream Pearls from PP!!

Most women my mother's age wore them in their graduation photos. I'm sure they changed color with age, 80 years..
.. I also bought the creamy metallics, a rope. Ours are not graduated like yours will be. I hope you like them.

Re: Pls help me to choose the 2nd strand

I can't help with size but have a spacing I like. 1/2". It seems pleasing to the eye. I just add pearls to make them create that design. You can't just say a certain length.

Re: Tahitian and South Sea Pearls

Only Black South Sea pearls from French Polynesia are called Tahitians. If they are grown in other areas they are called Black South Sea pearls. See Justin Hunter's farm in Fiji.

Re: ISO a pair of 10-11mm deep golden south sea pearls ROP

PS, Make sure you know your seller. Dyeing golden's is a problem and you can be deceived and cheated by unscrupulous sellers. Some here on this forum can attest to this. the darker the golden , the more they cost. If the price is too good to believe, back away. Asking your source before buying is im...
