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

More sizes of babies. The second size may be a great option for earrings, the next for 14 k in affordable pendants.

Re: Pearl Drilling Conventions

Actually OP it doesn't matter what anyone thinks except you. If you don't like them you won't wear them. If you get compliments you'll wonder if they are sincere. I'm glad the seller is making things right for you.

Re: Pearl Drilling Conventions

I would return the pearls you can't use. The seller is rationalizing poor drilling hoping you'll fall for their lame excuse.

Re: I just inherited these....are they worth anything?

That's good. Used pearls are easy to buy but hard to sell. If she appraised them for what they would cost to replace the number would be way off the price to sell them as old used pearls. If she offered to buy them I would be Leary of under pricing. I hope you enjoy wearing your new strands, someone...

Sure had fun with you and the others two weeks ago. Can't wait for next year. The vampire mabe you selected was beautiful. I wish I had seen the others in person.

Re: Traveling with pearls -- in hand luggage?

I just moved all my jewelry by air from GA to CA. The bag had to be scanned twice but nothing was taken. I would never place anything in my suitcase. TSA lets all watches and Jewelry I've worn go though both types of walk through body scanners. They stop and look at my wrist occasionally but that's ...

Re: Ruckus pearls

I selected the three thinking I could make a pendant or ring with the spare. In the mean time I asked for finished jewelry , so he sent a group email out showing items he Could bring, asking for input.

Then he showed this.

Re: Ruckus pearls

I talked to Douglas weeks before the ruckus. I needed earrings to match the pearl I purchased last year but knew finding pearls to match would be impossible. I asked for the most wine/ red mabe's of this years harvest this is what I go to choose from.

Re: Anyone Know The Value Of These Vintage Mikimoto Pearls??

It apears to be. The clam shell mark is there. There are many qualities of pearls sold by them so don't too excited you've hit the jackpot.
These will be hard to clean up due to so much tarnish and harsh cleaners or silver dips harm pearls.
