I can't see the photo, either.
I can't seem to post or see photos today, either.
The website may still be experiencing some issues.
OOOO, what a gorgeous necklace.
Of course you can match SS pearls to an akoya necklace. Here's proof.
However, you might want to talk to or e-mail PP and ask them to match the pearls...
Pearls and sapphires. My natural white Hanadama rope from PP with Mom's choker and sapphire earrings.
Mom's pearl bracelet and sapphire ring.
I'm not sure I ever showed you...
I voted. I love Hisano's pieces anyway.
For some of the other jewelry pieces, I had a hard time telling scale. I couldn't tell which things were rings and which were bracelets. They all looked...
Are there any markings on the back of the clasp?
What size pearls are they in mm?
Hanadama, your rope looks terrific.
I do agree that since you are giving them as a gift, a nice box is, well, nicer.
I'm usually buying for myself and I toss the box, so it doesn't bother me.
I wonder if the...
Wait, I know who Alphonse reminds me of . . . Grommit!
I think it's the way the shadow falls across the "nose" in that last photo.
I'd go for a multistrand necklace of 5mm all nacre akoyas, with the strands all different lengths, not nested. Where do I sign up?
Go for it! I'd love to see your mother's circle pins. I didn't think I'd wear my Mom's, but I really like it. It's got a very retro florentine finish to the gold parts.
And the clasp is...
Well, that's it until the diamond ring is finished being reworked at the jeweler. (Or I can get my sister to let me photograph some of her pieces.)
Unless you want to see the Native American...
All Mom's today. Her pearl circle pin, 9mm akoya choker, SS drops on her diamond hoops, her 2 sets of tricolor gold bangles, her akoya pearl ring, and not shown, her ruby ring on my left hand.
Oh wow, the luster and orient on those little pearls, and the big ones. I love it.
I don't know. He looks like Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
But he does look like an Alphonse.
I just love naming pearls. I don't name my other jewelry, just the pearls.
7mm is a very wearable size.
He's glaring at me.
OMG, my ovaries just exploded. Those are soooo cute. And the pearls are beautiful, too.
What do their tummies look like? I know the backsides of Sheri's jewels are just as fun as the front...
Definitely send them back and ask for another pair. PP has been very accommodating with my returns. I've sent back probably more than I've bought, but since this is an online vendor, they expect...
Hi Ash: I love the amethyst ones, but I'm a sucker for purple. And amethysts. And pearls.
Holy cow, those are door knockers. I can't actually see wearing those. The need to be on a beautiful jewelry cabinet as the door pulls.
You can never go wrong with Hanadamas! And 7.5 - 8 mm is a very nice size for an earring. Perfect choice.
Karman, I feel for you. Canada Post once held something I ordered for 6 months before it finally arrived. By then the seller had already replaced the item for me. I contacted them and paid them...
When Russia opened up to American tourists, my parents visited Russia.
My great grandfather came to America from Russia in 1902. He bought a Singer sewing machine and set himself up as a tailor. ...
My Mom's cameos. My sister kept one and my brother kept one for his wife, but I got the rest of them.
Mom bought carved shell cameos and Wedgwood in the swinging 60's in the Portobello Road...
