I look forward to Miss Daisy’s responseI want you to know Miss Daisy that I have stuck to my pearl ban.
For 2021 I have a baroque golden South Sea pearl in mind. I am looking for a very particular shape with rings. Hopefully 12-14 mm in size. For years I thought they were not that interesting and now I am obsessed. Fingers crossed!
I look forward to Miss Daisy’s response
I say that from my perspective you are exhibiting most admirable self control but then, I am not Miss Daisy, I acknowledge that my standards may be lower than hers

Spouting some nonsense about blowing the yearly bling budget within the first quarter. It’s got some gall, I tell you!
Those are beautiful and I can see why you were tempted. What are your plans? I love that you create your own pieces and look forward to seeing how you use them.
Since I'm fairly new to the pearl addiction, I want to start out slow. Currently, I'm craving a Champagne SS 11mm bracelet. The price is more than I expected, $3750 for just the pearls. (Andrew M) Right now I don't trust my limited knowledge to make an informed decision on that just yet. Next, I want a glorious strand of creamy white SS. Maybe 12-15mm and around 16-18". I know that will cost a bunch!! I also have some bling redos in my wish basket, so one thing at a time.
Golden south seas are always pricey - and right now whites are completely insane!! I’m sitting on price jump details from multiple vendors and wishing I had a time machine
Would it be possible to see pearls from a few different vendors in-person, perhaps at different pricepoints? To find out what your options are right now (inventory and availability is always changing!) and to firm up exactly what you want.
My only real recommendation is to only buy with a return policy that you’re comfy with. Some vendors offer free returns, some have restocking fees, some charge shipping on returns, some are final sale if drilled, some are final sale period... IMO pearls almost always need to be seen in-person to be evaluated fairly, so just make sure that whatever vendor you ultimately choose, you have options should your eyes not love what you see!! I think all the commonly-recommended vendors will offer some sort of return policy but it’s safest to get the details in writing before you buy
