My strands are only (rarely) noticed by fellow pearl people.

    It's funny your husband has such strong feelings. Mine recently came out and announced that he loves my WSS strand and my Akoya strand and that he's less enamored with my baroque Tahitians (he blurted this out when I was debating which strand to wear to one of his work functions). Traditional pearls look 'fancier' in his opinion. This after 3 years of saying that everything I wear looks nice...
    Maybe pendants are simply more appealing: one single focal point.

    Thanks for sharing your perspective cmd!

    That ombre strand from Golay is my favourite too. An amazing strand!
    I'm not sure about the majority but I bet many SOs don't notice pearls.

    Thanks for the compliment, Lugana.

    Your pendants are all unique (read gorgeous), BWeaves.

    Tahitians are great on men. I'd like to get a single Tahitian on leather for each of my boys.

    Those colors look wonderful on your husband!

    Your collection is really stunning, baby nurse. These 365 Day threads are so much fun! First Barbara's, now yours.

    Husbands and pearls, lol. I think mine just isn't very interested in them so he does the "that's nice, dear" thing to be polite, for the most part. It's probably like how I am a bit bored but a bit alarmed when he's all shiny-eyed over a new tool or something on the weather channel. :/

    BN, all your pearls are amazing, but that Golay strand is probably my most favorite Tahitian strand ever! It is one amazing pearl after another and to combine them all in ombre fashion into one strand is like a dream! It is one of those things that I wonder if I will ever find and own because it must have taken mountains of pearls to find such gradual shades of change with size and shapes matching. Please wear them more often and treat us to the pictures!

    Day 67:

    This is a soufflé pearl ring that Hisano from little h put together for me. The shank is yellow gold, size 4.5.

    Me, too.

    But my takeaway? 4.5? SIZE 4.5 I just had my rings resized to 8.25. Sigh.

    What a lovely ring, Hisano did a great job.

    I long for the day I can wear a 4.5 on my ring finger again, so many unsizable rings that I can't make use of till then!

    Beautiful ring...and I am also marveling at a 4.5 size. My ring fingers used to be a size 5, and I can still wear a 5.5 on my left, but my right is much more comfortable in a 6.25 (hand swelling and all). It's getting over the knuckles that's the tough part...but I've learned that a good ring is worth the extra soap it takes to get it off.
