Thank you for your reply. We leave this Tuesday and I am so excited I just can't wait. I am not a huge fan of pearls but the more I have been looking at them the more I do like them in a setting. I just received an email from a jeweler advertising chocolate pearls with chocolate diamonds. It was really pretty but I am not comfortable purchasing things I am not familliar with. I know that black pearls are the thing to buy in Tahiti. I usually try to purchase a little token when I travel. Some people collect plates I collect jewelry.
Thanks again to all. I'll write when I get back
