Q: What is the difference between the Floating Pearls Packs and the Pearls Packs that don't have the word Floating in the title?
A: The Floating Pearls contain the Transparent Gels which are needed to make the Pearls float. The standard Packs are just the Pearls themselves.
Q: What is the difference between pearls with holes and pearls without hole? Which one's float?
A: No Hole looks smoother unlike an ordinary bead. The pearls with holes and without holes both float.
Q: How far in advance can I prepare the floating the pearls in the vases?
A: You can prepare them several days in advance if you keep them well covered.
Q: How long do the pearls float and are they reusable?
A: They float for several months and are reusable. (Hydrated Gels need to be stored in water and covered, pearls can be dried off and put in bags)
Q: Are the floating pearls hard to prepare?
A: They are extremely easy to prepare. Instructions are included with your order. We are always here to answer any questions. We recommend practicing on a vase beforehand and you can always reuse/save the pearls and water gels.
Q: How come my pearls aren't floating?
A: Pearls do not float in water. You need the Transparent Water Gels to float them. If you already have them and prepared them according to our instructions, then most probably you have added more than 1/2" of water over the last layer of the Transparent Water Gels on to in your vase.
Q: How to hydrate the Water Gels?
A: You must soak the Water Gels in distilled or tap water for a minimum of 10 hours. You may use a container or zip lock bag. Add 10 measuring cups of Water for each individual Packet of the Transparent Water Gels.
Q: How come my Water Gels are not Transparent?
A: You either didn't fully hydrate the Water Gels or you didn't add enough water to the Water Gels in your vase.
Q: Can I transfer the vases after I prepare them?
A: Yes, you can but do not add that extra 1/2" of water on top so the Pearls stay in place during transportation.
Q: Are the Transparent water gels hard to remove from the vases or store?
A: Not at all! It is similar to removing water. They must be stored in clean water for reuse. Do not keep the hydrated Water Gels out of Water for more than 4 hours or so, or they will go bad. DO NOT DEHYDRATE THEM.
Q: Do the Water Gels solidify or dissolve and are they permanent?
A: The Water Gels do not solidify nor dissolve. They expand and hold a lot of the Water while hydrating. They will last for several years if stored well.
Q: What colors do you have?
A: We have in stock most of the colors in the World in the Pearls and the Gems. For any colors you cannot find, please call/email us.
Q: How much do I need?
A: Each Transparent Water Gel Packet makes 8 measuring cups of the hydrated Water Gels. If your vases hold about 8 measuring cups of Water, you will need 1 Packet per vase. Typically, 1 Pearls Pack of 40 Pearls per 1 to 2 Water Gels Packets, depending on your budget and the look you would like to achieve.
Q: What do I need to get this look?
A: You will need the Pearls, The Transparent Water Gels, Floating Candle, and at least one vase. We do not sell the vases, we sell everything that goes in the vases. We also have many types of Tea Lights that will light up in your vase and can be used with the Transparent Water Gels.
