    Default Three new Tahitian baubles

    Last April, while celebrating Newberry's birthday at PP I found 2 stunning gem quality Tahitian pearls (not to mention a few other finds, but that's for another thread!).
    At first I thought I'd make them into studs - I rather liked the idea of 2 different colors for each ear. The slight different sizes and the fact that I wouldn't be able to see them, changed my mind. Then I thought of stacking rings, but 3 would be better, so I found another equal quality pearl. The peacock pearl has a rose gold ring, the blue has white gold and the bronze pearl ring is gold. John suggested adding tiny diamonds 3/4s if the way down each band, which would have been stunning. But I decided I'd add my own 3 eternity bands, so opted against his suggestion. My bands don't do them justice - He was right, I'm going to have him add the diamonds! But for now I'm enjoying them just as they are!

    They play really well with Fiji pearls, and golden SS pearls.

    Ooooh! Bubbles of Beautiful Pearls! They are just lovely as they are, and with your Fiji's of course, but even I suspect John's advice is sage Lovely lmgardens ... hope to see these all in short order!

    I really like the way these look as they are. Just my opinion, but I think they look fantastic without diamonds. You might lose the look of the tricolor metals. I also love your diamond band peeking through on that one photo. Really wonderful rings!!

    I'm not sure the diamonds would be even noticed on the bands. Those amazing pearls blot out everything else, including the other bands you are wearing.

    Thank you, Cathy! You're right these stacking rings look like Hisano's "bubble" rings! I like that I can wear one or two at a time, rather than always three. I'll be sure to bring these and the Fiji necklaces to the Ruckus!

    Thank you, JP! I may decide not to add the diamonds, but when worn one at a time, the slight sparkle might enhance rather than over power. Or perhaps I may add diamonds to the white gold band with the blue pearl, and not the others. They're very thin bands, but I see your point.
