    Thank you, Sea Urchin, SunSeeker, Katbran, Cathy, and hanadama!

    Day 93:

    Today I wore my Pearl Paradise baroque akoya. I have two strands of these that nest but this sweater looked better with just one.

    Thanks, Katbran! This was a special PP had 2 years ago and a lot of people from PG bought them: Pearl Dreams, Cathykeshi, newberry to name a few. Luster and overtones are wonderful on these.

    I'm still kicking myself that I didn't get a strand of these. They are gorgeous. But I had just bought my first blue baroque akoyas and I was a bit underwhelmed, and I thought the white ones would be the same. Of course, now I'm blue crazy.

    Ok, you know I'm a newbie, right? What makes these baroque? They look pretty darned round and smooth to me, or is it my old eyes?

    They don't have the smooth surface normally associated with akoya pearls. Since akoyas usually have a round bead in the center and a thin layer of nacre over the bead, akoya pearls are usually very, very smooth and very round. Anything the least bit ripply on the surface is going to count as baroque in the akoya world.

    You have the best collection of blues! And I do think it takes some experience with pearls to know when to buy and when to let something slip buy. Personally, even with experience there have been times that I didn't realize my mistake in not buying until others began posting their goodies.

    Day 94:

    36" Multicolor Keshi rope from Pearl Paradise. I bought this during a Black Friday sale a few years ago.
