These are a pearl I love to hunt down. I mean who wouldn't love finding a large natural purple or crisp white pearl with metallic luster? But to be honest I'm a little disappointed at the selection and pricing of loose Edison pearls this show. I had hoped to return home with a large selection of various sizes and colors, but after over going through several thousand pearls, I ended up with only a very small handful.
To finish the day I sat down with a favorite supplier, to select metallic(true metallic) freshwater pearls. I started by matching incredible white metallic earring pairs ranging from 8 to 10mm and some beautiful eye round 9-10mm white metallic strands.
While busy matching, one of the bosses dropped an incredible multi-color metallic pearl strand in front of me. The saturated colors, round shapes and incredible metallic luster were like nothing we've seen yet. A little too pricey for me to pull the trigger(still considering it though), but I actually feel it was reasonable for what it was -- one of the rarest strands of pearls on the planet.
