    Thx Amti for the kind words, glad you liked them. You have very specific tastes so I am glad you liked the colors. The Luster is not extreme but the colors really floored me, I like them layered with tourmaline beads, but not the pristine crystal clear kind, I like the tourmaline beads with crystal inclusions and cats eyes, they share some of the same colors as the pearls.

    Amti here is another pic for you and KB.
    One of the new pearls in a pendant (the purple one on the lower right is now a pendant) for size comparison I added some stud earrings.

    ***Disclosure I used a flashlight with a paper towel filter.

    A tip I got from a photographer friend, for in a pinch photos without a lightbox. The colors are very close to what I see with my eyes. Only the black akoya are so deep you don't see the purple overtones as well here.

    Neat tip! I don't have a lightbox and was admiring the one at PP while I was there. That middle pearl is my favorite and has a really nice color, not to mention a very nice bail.
