It’s almost the new year! Anyone have thoughts on what they want on their 2021 wishlist?
There is only pearl item on my wish list, and it is a strand of round blue Tahitian pearls in 13-14mm size, preferably with a paved diamond ball clasp so that I could wear if off to one side in the front.
A flame conch pearl would be awesome!
I also would like some other exotic pearls.
Quahog, abalone, melo, etc.
OMG i remember the first time i saw a paua pearl
it was in a $4k 18k gold ring in 1999
The paua has the best colours of all abalone
Trouble is the farms only seem to wholesale and a lot of the jewlery seems to be geared towards high end tourist locations with ginormouse mark ups even by jewlery standards
Oh yes, those are gorgeous! I looked at trying to buy one years ago but there seemed limited places to do so, and you’re right, most of the settings were elaborate and expensive!
These are 11.2mm SS that I wear with clustered or solitaire studs for fancier occasions. I wish to get a pair of 12mm as plain studs. I adore such silvery bluish pearls
I love silvery blue too! I just got a baroque strand of 10.5mm silver blue akoya. I don’t know why we can’t get the same color in round akoya though but it seems impossible!
I saw the mikimoto ombré strand and now I’m a little obsessed...
I don’t have the budget for a 25k strand though so I asked a vendor to put something together for me. So far this is the front runner
