Re: Expectations for Freshadama pearls?

That happened to me too when I got freshadamas. Same kind of thing, the color and shine were great, but they were clearly off round. And I felt that if I were paying more I wanted something REALLY nice. They wound up exchanging it for another very nice necklace.

Re: It's here! .91 peachy-pink sapphire

Sapphires do that color well. Sometimes peach spinels can shift and look a little bit tan.

Re: Pearl ideas for young girls

I wouldn't spend too much. The reason being that at that age they aren't super responsible with jewelry. My daughter is 10 and she does have a pink peach baroque freshwater necklace. Pink is her favorite color. They are small, maybe 5mm. On her it looks like a normal sized necklace. I have a few ver...

Re: Pearl studs around 10mm

I would go with white freshwater metallic or freshadama for your first pearl studs and then experiment later. Also I would go for a rose overtone with your skin. Of course they have a very good return policy so if you get rose and then decide it's not for you it's okay to exchange them. I have 9mm t...

Re: Jewelry shopping in Seoul?

I haven't been there in a very long time. But I do remember that there were some decent deals to be had 15 years ago. At the time a lot of the shops were carrying very delicate, feminine, pretty pieces. Not sure what the trends are there now.

I'm not sure this is where I would look for an engagement ring stone. There are a lot of booths with interesting stones, and I'm sure you can find some sapphires at this show.

Hi OTL. There are all types of vendors. I would say this show is on the smaller side. One of the highlights for me is the Himalayan tourmaline booth. That booth also has Oregon sunstone ( they own both mines ). They have been there the last three years, so I hope they will be there again this year. ...

I found some pretty GSSP studs on Etsy (at least that us what the vendor says they are) but the price was pretty terrific so even if they are dyed freshwaters they are still pretty. they are 10mm http://www.pricescope.com/files/images/fullsizerender-94.jpg I like those. Makes me want a pair.
