Please NOTE:  The color of the gemstones and pearls may vary slightly depending on the when the lot was purchased.  We try very hard to show the true colors of our gems and pearl photos, however, your computer or phone or tablet color may be slightly different.  If you purchase a one-only design, you will receive that exact one in the photo.  If you are purchasing a duplicate of the design, gemstones and pearls are natural and we cannot control slight differentiations in the color or striation.
