    My Kasumi pendant is here from Kojima!!! It's smaller than I thought it would be. Well, it's smaller than my Kasumi earrings from Kojima. BUT, the color is amazing. It's so shiny and it shifts from intense green to intense coppery pink just moving it around.

    Here it is with my Kasumi earrings and Chinese ripples, all from Kojima.

    And on my yellow gold, tube knit choker. The bail of the pendant is rose gold with champagne colored diamonds.

    Neck shots will have to wait a couple of days. I just had a little microneedling done and my skin is too red.

    Weird. Once again, my first photo is rightside up and all the others are on their sides. Is this a weird setting in the forum?

    They actually photograph more intense than they look in real life. Florida sun washes out their color. I didn't think I liked Kasumi pearls or ripples, and then I saw them in real life and fell in love.

    The intense colour looks wonderful! Those earrings are amazing and looks like the pendant is very similar in colour - itís quite remarkable how the colours shift around on ripples and Kasumi.

    Thanks again, Cathy. You need to teach us how to right the photos, so we can try to fix it ourselves. Is there a trick to it?

    Thanks, everyone.

    BWeaves, I do not know why some photos flip. Some have speculated it has to do with file sizes, or maybe when posting from phone or tablets? Here's what I do to fix photos; others may use simpler/different methods. I copy the photo off PG onto my laptop and drop into Photoshop, where I rotate the image in whatever direction it needs to be ... usually 90 degrees clockwise, but occasionally otherwise. Then I resave the image as a new .jpeg and repost back into PG. In doing that, I have a default "medium" size setting for the .jpeg. It works for me so long as I have access to my laptop. Then I delete photos from my laptop, which is full enough already lol. Really, no thanks needed; I'm happy to do it; I love to see the pearls rightside up in all their glory

    This sterling silver pendant arrived today. I had planned to give it as a gift but I'm really loving the pearl...it might stay with me. It is from PP and the pearl was listed between 9 and 10mm.

    Annie, that's a gorgeous pendant. I'd find it hard to part with, too.

    Cathy, all photos come from my phone onto my laptop and then onto PG. I usually crop the photos, but it's possible that the flippy ones weren't cropped. I'll have to play around with that and test. Thanks for the info. I also might try tipping the photos over in my laptop and see if they rightside up when posted.

    annie, that is one perfect pendant - I doubt I could part with it either. Unless the recipient is a true pearl lover AND lives nearby so I could visit. hahah!

    BWeaves, your new kasumi pendant is stunning, I especially love it on your gold knit choker with the rose and gold tones in the metals complementing the overtones in the pearl.
