    Default 10mm edison pair

    I am not experienced with pearls so I am easily impressed. Therefore forgive me for over reacting to this set of twins I just received. The phone just cannot capture the true color. Don't know how to describe - they are like silver beads with lavender orient. The luster is great! Not mirror sharp yet there is a metallic feel with satin softness, which makes them quite dreamy and romantic.

    Those are gorgeous? Are they earrings? Or are they going to be earrings? Or something else?

    Thank you GemGeek, BWeaves and Katbran. Yes they are going to be earrings. Considering as interchangeable dangles either on a hoop or stud.

    Btw, I am very confused about orient and overtone. Just googled the terms, think it should be lavender overtone (not orient).

    They are indeed gorgeous. That colour is still very rare to find, and I love the purple -silver-lavender.

    Good quality purple is rare. It so often drops into a sort of muddly browny purple which is not so good, but the colour looks non-brown from the photos
