    Default *Fingers crossed!* PP baroque green peacock Ts!

    So I may have just purchased this strand...Pearls are 8.1-12.1mm and AA+/AAA grade. If they work out they will be my largest pearls and should go nicely with the little peacock collection I just posted in the 'show us your pearls in action' thread! I've requested additional photos before shipping but I'm pretty sure I'm going to love them!

    Description:
    This iridescent Tahitian strand features dark pearls with rich_green and peacock overtones. The pearls have classic baroque shapes with light circles, the sharpest luster, and have very light blemishes. The finished strand will be approximately 18 inches in length, knotted on color-matching silk and finished with your choice of 14-karat clasp. The strand in the photo is the strand you will receive.

    I also thought this strand was really pretty if you can overlook the minor blemishing.

    Gah! You're killing me. I'm trying to hold off buying anything until Ruckus when I can see everything in person and it'll all be gone!

    Oohh I think you are going to love this hanadama. It's looks similar to the strand in size, colours, and shapes I bought last August.
    That strand is one of my favs. It's dark yet colourful and so lustrous.

    I know! They are amazing!

    Thank you PW, money, BWeaves & Bailey! Bailey, if they look anything like your strand I'll be very happy! I'll post more photos when I receive them from PP.

    BWeaves, I'm sure these are all new strands, I don't remember seeing them listed before. But I'm certain that PP will have lots of beautiful, unlisted strands in their vault for you to pick from. Did you see lots of Tahitians last trip?

    I'm so jealous that you get to pick out pearls in person! The biggest issue with ordering from the US is that I have to be sure I'm going to love the pearls, which is super tricky, but returns are just too expensive.

    Thanks GemGeek and Cathy! Woo! Just received these photos from Erin! Photos taken in a range of light conditions - natural light indoors, office light and studio light.

    Erin described the colour as: overall body color is green but there are tons of lighter shades of green, cherry and even blue and gold throughout. (Depending on lighting).

    They may not be quite as intensely coloured as my current peacocks but the strand appears to be incredibly bright and green with overtones that pop in certain light conditions.

    Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. (I'm just kidding about all the good strands will be gone. It's sort of a running joke with darling hubby and me. His favorite movie is "A Christmas Story" and the Dad in the movie is trying to get everyone into the car so they can pick out a X-mas tree. "Come on, or all the good trees will be gone!")

    BWeaves, LOL I love that analogy. But it's so true with pearls! If you find something unique that really calls to you, FOMO definitely kicks in!

    Thank you SunSeeker! I'll definitely spam you all with pics when it arrives!

    I think they look like a pretty good match up - very pretty ! You are right..they don't look as colourful but you won't know for sure until you have them in hand. The shape is nice...fat roundish circles ... you should be good to go with these I'd think !
