Victoria asked about stinking pearls…
Victoria, I asked someone with extensive experience drilling Tahitian
pearls, and this is the response I got:
“We have that problem with baroque pearls. What we have done in the
past, was to flush it out with water and let it dry in the sun. This
may take several attempts. The inside of the pearl needs to be
completely dry before any of epoxy or glue can be applied.”
Hope this helps!
