by susief » Feb 24, 2012 I'm in the UK and really want a nice pair of small (6-6.5mm) Akoya earrings (studs). I previously ordered Freshadamas in a larger size from Pearl Paradise, which I love, but shipping ($45) and a huge amount of taxes means it's just unfeasible to do again. I'm struggling to find a decent UK company. Blue Nile UK do have some - are their pearls any good? We have a Mikimoto store too but they are more expensive. Or any other suggestions?
