    So glad you asked Katbran...was wondering the same.

    And I also love your choices! Cees has an amazing eye for color, doesn't he?

    Oh, sorry! I thought the entire box of loose pearls were Fijis! But I did check out that upper right corner, I haven't seen naturally bronzy pearls IRL yet. #noob

    Lovely loot you got there, Pareltje! Lucky you! I wish we have some pearl ruckus here in our little red dot, eh?

    Pareltje- what a beautiful grouping you have chosen! I would be half tempted to take the chubby kitty with me, too!

    Not a Noob at all lol I knew that because ( I'd like to say I just knew by looking at them...) Cees had already sent me the photo a while back and pointed out the three in the upper right. I passed on them as I really was looking for a strand...and I've already got more 'earring pearls' than I can count. Maybe next harvest I'll scoop up a bunch .

    JP - No worries ! You and I are 'Finding' fiends!!

What are your thoughts?
    Thank you.
    I will try to take pictures when the sun comes out. I'm also curious how they will look in the full sun.

    Yes, Katbran. They come apart as 5 bracelets and 2 ropes but you can wear them all together is you wish. RH is a jeweler in the Netherlands, she has some gold and silver findings. She doesn't make her own like you do, Katbran, she orders them from a company based on what her clients need.

    Thanks Abi, JP, CrazyMissy, jeg for your sweet compliments.

    CrazyMissy of course it would be really great if you girls have your own South East Asian ruckus with members from SEA countries, I think that would be really fun. Geographically it's easier too, you don't need to fly far.

    JP, yes, Cees has an amazing eye for colors and pity many of the items I love have been taken by others actually.

    jeg, I tickled the chubby cat and it seems he didn't like it so he scratched me and walked away, sigh. I really like that cat.

    EileenK, my Tahitians lose their colors when European sunlight hit them, they turn into a nondescript grey colored beads. But I assure you there are Tahitian colors which don't fade away in the sun, I usually see copper, bronzy and golden pistachio colored pearls retain their colors well in the sun.
    Here are a few pics of my Fijians in the full sun

    This is how I'm going to wear my coppery brozy Fijians. I can wear them as pendants too because the eye pins are actually pendant bails.

    I like those fat eye rings - do you mind if I ask where they came from ?

    Those pearls look wonderful and I love the two singles ! You must be thrilled !!

    Katbran, those are bails, Cees helped me get them from RH. I think if you need help to findings from Cees, he will be willing to help you. I usually order my findings from anywhere I fancy but this time I'm not patient enough to wait until my order arrives. So I bought what was readily available.
    I still order a pair of earstuds because they are not in stock.

    Some extra info, if you find it useful, I also order my gold findings from Cooksongold in the UK because they have 18k findings.
