[quote postid="5552734" user="PemberDucky"]I have responses to a couple of questions!
regarding the shape, the vendor tells us:
These are nugget pearls, so they are rounded with some flat sides to them. They are natural, and the inconsistency is the beauty of it.
Thank you for checking that out.
Snarky Comment: Very true that natural things are neither perfectly nor consistently shaped. That's an artifact of mass production. Still, the marketing speak from the vendor is a bit much -- and this comes from someone who teaches marketing!
Nevertheless, thanks for getting this helpful information. Knowing what to expect, I'll be ordering one.
