    Default 58 Inches of Pearls

    Just an afternoon out to do some supermarket shopping. I hooked two strands together to form a rope. I am wearing my mixed strands of baroque Tahitians from AP. These are my "got to" strands. They have a mirror luster and have almost no blemishes. Notice also, I am not wearing black.

    Beautiful pearls and I agree, they are enormous!! The lovely overtones pop against your beige top.

    Thank you Lugana and Handama for your complimentary comments.
    I actually have shown them before on this forum. However, I think I was wearing black and their colors didn't pop. The pearls are graduated with the largest 11x13.

    Gorgeous. It's amazing how Tahitians change color depending on what you are wearing. They really are like little mirrors. Gorgeous rope.

    Thank you everyone. This rope was one of my very first online purchases. Previously, I had bought Tahitians from a reputable jeweler in Hong Kong when ever we traveled there. I remember when I opened the box, I was blown away by the colors and luster. Everyone seems to think the are large. However, the largest pearls are 11x13 and graduate down slightly . I think when I crop my images, it seems to make the pearls larger then life.
