    Default Keshi South Sea Pearls from Cees

    I recently went on a bit of pearl spending spree with Cees.

    I wanted to have a set of cufflinks made for my husband so asked Cees to source me a some Keshi pearls. Originally I wanted 4 - 2 each Tahitians and 2 each of SS - of similar size so I can set them for wearing as mis-matched or matching depending on his mood.

    Cees tried very hard to achieve my vision but in the end we settled on a gorgeous pair of white SS keshis which became cufflinks and a gorgeous pair of golden round pearls which will become earrings (a slight deviation from the original plan - lucky me).

    Here are some pics of the completed cufflinks - I had them set her in Dubai in 18ct yellow gold with tiny diamond melee. I'm pretty pleased with the final result. I've not loaded pictures on here so not quite sure if I'm doing it right....

    I love the cufflinks. I'd buy Frenchcuff ladies blouses just so I could borrow them, haha.

    I like the swirly diamond "prongs." I think that the "prongs" will help keep the pearls from being banged around.

    Thanks everyone - yes indeed I shall have a new French cuff shirt made so I have an excuse to steal his bling! The earrings are in production, I'll post when they are done. I ended up buying a strand of smaller white SS, golden SS and 2 multi-colour Tahitian strands from Cees. I'm eyeing off a strand of his pale blue SS to complete the collection. I thought I was more of a diamond/colour stone girl til I tripped over this forum.... oh dear!
