Re: Setting pearls

Look through the trusted vendors list above and you may find just the setting you're looking for. They can set it also.

Re: Anyone experienced having sticky residue on your pearls?

I live in the deep south of the United States. It's hot and humid here and I usually wear mine against bare skin. I don't wear moisturizer or sunscreen since I don't go out in the sun much. I do notice that after wearing them for a day or two, the surface of the pearls is gritty and dull from perspi...

The First two are champagne gold. The next one is not gold but similar to what gold would look like.

I'm having an absolute fit and she won't sell it. She filled it with a sea of Cortez pearl.

Re: Anyone experienced having sticky residue on your pearls?

Most all of mine are stored in the boxes they came in from PP. None of them are sticky, but just like they were when I got them. Are you storing them clean each time? My pearls only date back 9 years from PP.

Re: Getting pearl drilled/mounted?

Most jewelers will bring the pearls in already drilled, made into jewelry or strung. There is no need for this drill.

Re: Octopus babies in a large range of colors, now how to de

Ennui, I am thinking octo collection.... like day of the week undies?
I asked if my pearl would fit in the lavender/green and Sheri said no, it's too large. Now I am looking at my loose pearls and thinking of going shopping again.

Re: Getting pearl drilled/mounted?

The people that full drill have the Machine and the holder so the pearl drillhole is straight and centered. I've had them half drilled by a jeweler holding it in his fingers using his work drill at the bench. The first way is optimal the second will work. Your average bench jeweler will not own this...

Re: Octopus babies in a large range of colors, now how to de

Thank you CRDKeshi! What a great size to fit through most bales. Your stones are very colorful and flashy. I bet they would compliment Tahitians in your collection. I went to eBay to check them out as the gem shows were last month around here. Sheri sent my octo baby off to me yesterday. I should ha...

Thank you. If I find I reach for him often, I will consider another in gold. I'm glad this is an option. I wonder how he would look in green gold? :think:

The project is done. It appears I have two options to thread my chain through since the pearl blocks the left tentacle.

Call around and find out who does repair work in house. If they also do custom, that is the one you want.

Re: Octopus babies in a large range of colors, now how to de

Thank you all for your kind words with my little project. I was hoping to wear this on my two tone reversible omega, or on a strand of multi color tahitians. 4ranch thinks I need a strand of labarodite beads, which I am sure would be lovely.

You should see her bugs. Disassembled and watch workings installed inside and frame mounted. Quite an imagination.
