These are my first strand (and probably last) South Sea pearls.
If your first SS piece is like this, well, it's truly difficult to imagine something beating it)) what a wonderful strand, makes a bold yet elegant not fussy statement. I'm very impressed with the neck shots (even though I'm not a fan of SS in general). Congratulations!
Those are beautiful. May I ask why would those be your last?
Pretty Pearls, thank you for the compliment. I really prefer Tahitian pearls overall. I had wanted one strand of white SS pearls in my collection. I had also bought a strand of smooth white perfectly round slightly metallic Ming pearls at the gem show as well. In my eye, they rival the SS strand at a fraction of the cost.
Wow, at loss for superlatives, Luvglitz!! You will have so much fun styling around these and they will likely reflect the colored clothing you wear, too! (Although perhaps like me, your wardrobe is heavy on basic black.)
I have to admit, I didn't go to the Dallas gem show in January with the express purpose of buying myself South Sea pearls. However, there was quite a bit to choose from, and I really liked the strand I chose albeit breaking my pearl budget.
Thank you Pattye for your compliments. And, yes when I look in my closet it is very very heavy on black. One would think I am a funeral director! I love how BN wears such luscious colors with her pearls.
