    Default Harvest Strand Arrived

    I couldn't wait for this to arrive after seeing all the luscious strands that were bought during Ruckus. I almost grabbed the box out of the poor FedEx guy's hands, after all, I waited all day for the truck to arrive.. And, they are just beautiful. My strand is 54" long. The SS white pearls are huge and very white (some of the pictures make them look silvery). It is an endless strand and the knotting is amazing. I can almost not see the knots. I wonder if it was done by PP or by the "farmer". I tried the strand many ways, and I actually like it with a necklace shorter as it makes the strand look longer when doubled. I will also try the necklace combined with my mixed SS strand and my 24K golden strand bought last year from PP during the golden sale. I am wearing it doubled in the picture

    More pictures. The first with the harvest strand doubled but with a necklace shortener so the bottom strand drops down longer. In the second picture, the necklace is just doubled, and I have added my SS mixed strand.

    The strands at PP were all endless strands that came arranged and knotted direct from the pearl farmer. I'm leaving mine alone for now, but some prefer to have a clasp, or some other changes made. You have a gorgeous strand.

    That's true! They actually knotted them in the Philippines. So the strands without clasps were done (probably not by the farmer himself, lol), but in his office.

    Thank you everyone. I love the strand available to me from the PP site. However, I would have loved to have seen all the strands together at Ruckus with my own eyes. . What eye candy that must have been. Does anyone know the total altogether that were available?

    Luv, I have to say I think next to Cathy's strand, yours is my favorite (not that the others aren't fantastic...just I love the colors on your strand)

    Oh be still my heart! It looks like this strand found it's perfect home too! When paired with your mixed strand OMG perfection!

    I think it was between 12 and 15 strands including Cathy's.

    I'm not sure of the exact count. Maybe around a dozen? You really couldn't go wrong with any selection, they all had such an interesting assortment and arrangement of pearls. If I had one of the really long ones I would be occupied all day turning it round and round!
