Well, it's the last day of the show, and we're starting to feel the long days(and long nights!). But the show goes on and we have just a few short hours before we fly home.
Souffle Pearl Earrings
On day 1
we posted pictures of some incredible "electric" souffle pearls. I had a number of requests for earrings but at the time we couldn't find any good pairs.
The range of colors, shapes and overtones, makes souffle pearls more than a little difficult to match. But with a little persistence I was able to make a handful of pairs.
I'm told souffle pearl production is dropping off (pearls are sold by weight and these pearls are hollow and light). Hopefully that changes, selection is noticeably limited this show.
Metallic Freshwater Pearls
More than just a high luster, true metallic pearls have a unique type of luster that comes from within the pearl. As opposed to just a shiny surface.
You must see them in person to really appreciate the effect. But here's a small glimpse at some of the metallic pearls we selected today.
And that's it... Another gem show is in the books.
Thanks for following along. If you enjoyed the pics, let Alana know by leaving a comment below.
