I need some new resources for pearls. I am going to sign up for
a pearl seminar so I can understand exactly what I am buying and
finally become an educated consumer.
I am looking for 10 -12mm freshwater round white pearls. The
place I visit in person to buy pearls have nice stuff but they
are not consistent. I bought a really nice strand several weeks
ago and the place I purchased it from are out. I called
American Pearls today and their prices were 8 times higher then
the amount I have previously paid(I have paid $100 bucks for a
really nice temporary strand of freshwater pearls round 10
-12mm) I need to get my hands on some more pearls but I feel my
ignorance about pearls is getting the best of me. Am I being
unrealistic in believing I can ever get more 10 -12mm round
freshwater pearls again for $100.00? I am not talking potato
shaped here - I am talking about reasonably round pearls.
Does anyone have any additional sources I can try?
