    Default First time posting

    Hey everybody, thought I would introduce myself. My wife absolutely loves pearls. It's her birthstone and her favorite gem. I figured I would do some research so I know what I'm looking for. Needless to say I've been bitten by the bug and I think I am more obsessed with pearls now than my wife is. We are about to have a new baby so I thought it would be a good excuse to buy her something nice. The necklace is 7.5-8mm white freshadama 16 inch. The studs are 7-8mm white metallic freshadama. Both are super pretty. My wife is really into the smaller size pearls and I think they look great. I will take other better pictures as well as neck shots if you would like. I've been learning a lot on this forum though, so keep up the good work.

    I echo your wife being lucky with a husband who not only buys her pearls, but who has been bitten by the pearl bug!

    Welcome NjClem, what a lovely gift for your wife! It's so nice to see someone willing to do a bit of research before making a pearl purchase.

    JerseyPearl has a great idea. A new dad bitten by the pearl bug might look great wearing a Tahitian pearl on a leather cord to celebrate his committment to the new baby

    Look at the metallic luster on those studs!

    Yeah, I was kinda worried that the studs wouldn't match the necklace very well but they look great together, in my slightly biased opinion, haha. I really wanted the metallic studs though and I was very happy with them, as was the wifey.
