I was able some time back to get a few great deals, in Fresh Water Pearls.
I bought about a dozen necklaces, over a 12 month period.
I gave them to special family members and friends, and the quality was really outstanding.
You have to do your homework as I did on the Internet....but there are some really good sellers.
We were in Broome for our 8th Wedding Anniversary , & hubby bought me a beautiful Paspaley Pearl Pendant as a present!
Because of its' colour, I can wear it with any colour outfit! Yay!
