    Default 2017 PP Tahitian Sale

    I was wondering if anyone else made purchases during PP's 2017 Tahitian Sale. Please post your purchases.

    I've wanted a smaller millimeter strand and I missed out on the baby Tahitian's they had some time ago. I bought a multicolor, AAA drop shaped strand. It is about 27 inches long. I love the uniformity of the shapes and how light weight it is compared to my Tahitian rope. It has lovely luster. I do wish it was a little less subtle.

    Here are a few pictures.

    I also ordered a 35 inch baroque strand with peacock and cherry overtones. I'm looking forward to receiving it!

    Annie - Those are stunning Tahitians. I'm sure you are delighted with them.

    I was out in LA earlier this week to visit PP, and I picked up a pair of strands of baby white Tahitians in the 6-8mm range. I was shopping for only one strand and I couldn't decide between the smoother drops on the right, or the more interesting shapes and color shading in the strand on the left. So, I waited for newberry to arrive to help me choose. She said to get both. Sigh! I cannot disobey the Pearl Queen, so after Erin made sure that the current clasps could hook together to make a baby white Tahitian rope, I purchased them both!

    Oooo such lovely T's. Neck shots of y'all wearing them would be splendid!! The strands I was about to buy ended up with some lucky people. I will have to wait and save up some more .

    I bought some gorgeous near round multicolor T's at Ruckus this year, so I passed on the T-sale. I really need to see T's in person. I'm not good at judging them from photos.

    Red, I love your white Tahitians. I'm especially attracted to the white drops. I love a rope necklace!

    The Pearl Queen has spoken ! Definitely good advice. That’s turned into a great rope and the baroque pearls add interest . Love the colour..I’ll have to see them in person one day. I’m in S Cal next Sept and will have to build in a trip to the pearl vault.

    I am very honored to even be thought of as a "pearl queen" but feel that there are many here that could go by that title and more deserving than I.

    You can't abdicate that easily, Pearl Queen I'm busy drafting a little sign ... whenever Walter gasps, grumbles or stumbles over the words "I need pearls ..." .... .... I'm just going to hold up my royal orders

    Technically, don't we have a few Pearl Queens from the QVC café?
