    Red face Peacock Blue Pearls

    Random question time, anyone know where I can get some good Peacock blue pearls. Cooksons don't really have many and they are already made into jewellery anyway. I've been on google a while and I just don't know which sites are trustworthy. My granny wants a blue pearl necklace and I said I would happily make it... but I can't find any now I'm looking

    I've had some very nice (and extremely good value) pearls, including coloured ones from Sandstones:

    Excellent service too.

    I like sandstones as well and I've had some beautiful pearls from them.

    I'm hoping for world peace but I'd also like something shiny as well...

    Any blue pearls will be dyed. For peacock blues you might need to look for black peacocks which are in fact blue (they can also be greenish or aubergine-ish) Any pearls which are black black are overprocessed and horrible to behold.
    For freshwater pearls do you mean peacock as in lots of colour variations on the strand? True peacock pearls show different colours in each pearl - so that a true peacock Tahitian for example will have a green main colour with a circle of aubergine. Rare and expensive (I know because I just tracked down the pearls for a client at the Hong Kong show and many Tahitian suppliers just sucked their teeth like plumbers when asked for peacocks)
