    Really lovely WSS pearls ... and an inventive way to prove one doesn't have to save the good stuff for a special occasion

    Baby nurse, there truly is a wow luster on your baroque SS pearls. I always think of the luster on white SS as being more mellow. Also, I think BWeaves is correct in thinking round SS pearls are more formally. I don't think I have ever worn mine casually during the day.

    I'm usually a silent drooler of this strand, but combining these makes me speak! love all the variants, but this made me jump:

    I think I like the baroque ones that are not too baroque, but just baroque enough. I hope I don't insult anyone, but the really big, perfectly round ones just scream "gum balls" to me. The baroque ones look a bit more real. I know that's heresy, since the round ones are more expensive. The SS pearls in my Everything Bagel necklace are just stunning. I wish I had a strand with just those in it. In contrast, my mother's baroque SS pearls looked like old, chipped teeth. Not one of her better purchases. Restringing them turned me off SS pearls, because they were really knarly.
    Thanks, BWeaves. Re shape, I guess there's something for everyone. I could happily live with both baroques AND rounds but ultimately think baroques probably work better with my lifestyle. For me they're a bit more wearable.

    Thanks, jeg! Yes, it's the advantage of wss, isn't it; the pearl variety you can count on to be bright white.

    Hehe-- good point, Cathy

    I think most SS pearls do have satiny luster, Luvglitz. As I mentioned earlier, I bought these specifically because of the nice luster, but I love all SS pearls.

    Thank you, Lugana!

    Day 192:

    Today I wore a strand of ripples from Catherine Cardellini. The earrings are really metallic and lovely and are from Lilia's Treasures.

    Thanks very much, Kay! Luster is the quality that draws me most to pearls. I'm really enjoying these!

    Day 193:

    I recently bought this tank which has a beautiful lace overlay. It's a unique look but I wasn't sure how to approach it with pearls.

    Since the top's a bit busy, I thought of just adding my little 18" cream akoya, purchased from JC Penney. But then there seemed to be a lot of empty space below.

    So I added the 36" strand of rosebud pearls from Lilia's Treasures. I'm not sure I love this look but I definitely had fun with it. Layering pearls is an art with a definite learning curve!

    I've been wearing a bracelet and post earrings with the tops. Sometimes a long chain with my bigger Edison pendant.
