    It's cute, and dark purple.

    Have you considered having it set in a ring? It's a nice size for a ring and could be worn by either a man or a woman.

    I still don't see a photo! :confused:

    Did you try sizing the photo smaller? Also if you are uploading photos from a smartphone, you have to use the desktop version of Pearl-Guide.

    Lighting is everything when it comes to seeing overtones, which can be subtle.

    I see a warm shade of pink there in your last 2 photos.

    Beautiful! It's really hard to capture both the colors and luster of pearls at the same time. I find it's easier to capture one or the other.

    And when that happens, I think we will see threads with titles like "Are these pearls akoyas or freshwaters?" just as we are now getting people wondering if their pearls are Edisons or SSP.
