They look better in real life than in the PP photo. Very nice pearls.

Re: Thought I would share

I like your new enhancers. The blue South sea pearl looks very nice with the baroque necklace and I love the mandala type enhancer. Is the center an amethyst or something else?

I think you could. And if you get your hand stamped at the door you can leave and come back the same day.

Re: San Francisco gem show this weekend!

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. But I think if it's for an engagement ring you really want to be able to have a more to look at, come back to and compare to...

Re: San Francisco gem show this weekend!

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. ...

Re: What are you wearing today?!

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.

San Francisco gem show this weekend!

Hi everyone. I know I don't post much these days, but I still love gemstones! My favorite San Francisco gem show is this weekend and I just wanted to let people here know about it. It's put on by the San Francisco gem and mineral society. Besides having some good vendors they also have some very int...

4RG, your new strand is to die for! My favorite pearl is that one pearl with blue and purple overtones. I've received my silver circled strand! It's very pretty!

The multi colored round lot that I chose from in March for my tin cup were from Rikitea. The light body baroques I'm not sure where they are from. There's been many articles written in JCK about the increase in pearl prices. At each of the auctions the prices have jumped quite a lot. I think freshw...

I picked up 3 of the Tahitian sale strands at the ruckus (silver, silver with strong blue overtones, and multi-color) to combine with a Peacock strand I bought previously to create a long, "faux harvest" double rope. (I can think of multiple ways to style the 72" of pearls -- I can't...

Re: Cheap light golden South sea pendant = instant gratifica

It's not a thread jack. I asked you, and it's still on the topic of pearls and Etsy :)

Those drops are so smooth and pretty! The rounds are nice too and I especially like that blue one. I purchased two drops and two baroques. Testing out the waters a little.

Re: Cheap light golden South sea pendant = instant gratifica

Yes I noticed the green too. It's weird. I searched through a lot of the pendants to avoid green. And I don't see any green in mine, which is good. So is it the pearls that are green, or is the photography somehow bringing out the green? I have some gSS drop earrings from PP that have a slight gree...

Inner kitten, Thanks for sharing. I think some of their pendants and earrings look pretty decent for their price. But the mini strands can be scary, especially those "blood pearls" :think: :errrr: Is it just me or do quite a number of their SSP seem to have green overtones? I bought some ...

I wanted to add, I know what you mean about golden pearls and skin tones. I only have a few gSS, but I find that the white are more flattering for me. I guess that's why white pearls are classic; they work for everyone. Btw, I would have been all over the pearls with green tones. Green works for me...
