I am looking for a source for black freshwater pearls… preferrably
baroque or rice shaped, drilled as beads. I understand that these
would be dyed black or as close to it as I can get (many call it
’peacock’, but often those are more blue than black).
I have found that these are difficult to find, that they are not
carried often or I have heard ‘Sorry, we don’t have any of those at
this time’. Found a manufacturer/supplier in Hong Kong, but I think
their minimum order to the states is too much for my current 'pearl’
budget (still waiting to hear back from them… I believe they
mentioned they are attending the Hong Kong show)… [I think Tucson
is fun, can’t imagine what Hong Kong is like!]
If anyone out there has a reputable source, I would really
appreciate being able to pursue that direction. Thanks in advance
for any help!
