    Default gold peach metallics FWP

    I received gold peach metallics from PP in the mail today! I expected them to be more 'gold' but they are so pretty IRL, I just gotta keep them (or give it to my mum )! They are very similar to the white metallics I got a few months back. Could you guess which one's which (white vs yellow clasp)?

    IRL the gold peach ones have an 'aura' (thin film of sorts?) of 'gold' around the pearl, not noticeable at a glance though.

    It's hard to judge pearls against a black background-- can you take a photo against a white background, like maybe a paper towel? I'm just wondering whether you were accidentally sent a white strand instead of the gold peach.

    I have a strand described as gold-pink-peach, and mostly it's pink/peach. The gold overtone is very subtle. But that strand in your photo doesn't look peach, at least not against the black.

    I second Pearl Dreams. Can you take photo against a white background please?
    I can see a few pink pearls on the strand, which I assume are the mirror metallic ones. The others look pale yellow to me with this black background.

    They look very pretty! Another vote for a photo on white background. And a neck shot please!

    I totally agree..they don't look golden peach at all. They look white. I'd send them back and get them switched. What a shame but it's a busy time and easy to mix things up. At least you know you won't have any problems with a return!

    you have been so helpful!! I've emailed PP and the rep agreed they are metallic whites, and I can either keep them or get them exchanged for the metallic gold-peach. I've decided to get the intended metallic gold-peach. Will post photos when I receive them!

    I've been curious if the peach metallics arrived. Does anyone else have "peach" metallics?

    I was too shy to reply that both necklace were white when I first read this post, so I applied some eye drops and look at the pictures again and again...
