    This is so true. I still have trouble "reading" the vendor photos, especially with Tahitians. There have been sale strands that I thought were pretty, but nothing special, when I saw the glamour shots, but then they looked amazing in neck shots on PG and I was kicking myself for missing out! I think some pearls need to be against skin to come alive.

    I love that rope of multicolor keshis -- so fresh and perfect for Spring!

    Thank you for the info.. I always think of baroque as having a not-round shape. Still learning!

    I agree. Keshi are one of my favorite pearls; the shapes are so interesting, luster and overtones wonderful and they're so affordable.

    I'm glad BWeaves offered this explanation, Sue Bee because I was struggling a bit with it. These baroques don't really look very baroque on the neck. But they're definitely too "lumpy" to be called off round, too.

    That's kind of you to say, Pattye!

    With the upcoming Mother's Day sales, I'm looking forward to having some new earrings to share.
