    I love all the different colors, the drop shapes, and the shine.

    Hi guys, I am debating if I should exchange my necklace for this one. PP sent me photos. The one I have right now is lighter and does not show as much colors as the one on photos they sent me. But the one on photos is darker wonder if the colors will still show nicely. I am just afraid if it will be to dark. Do any of you have a strand similar to the one in photos and how are the colors showing off?

    Maybe you can ask to see photos taken in day light?

    Tahitians will never show all their colors at all times. Mine sometimes look like dark silver only. At other times, there is a lot of color popping. I think you need to like it at its least spectacular

    IHEARTPEARLS, ask them to take photos under natural lighting conditions (next to an uncovered window, indirect daylight); and direct overhead artificial light. The photos above all appear to have been taken in indirect (filtered or shaded) artificial light. Looks like a lovely strand! Although I would ask to have that blemished pearl toward the middle removed.

He also agreed that they were great...for what they are... Ever want to be deflated, take pearls to a pearl show lol
    OMG! I would have slunked out of there. Do you go to HK often?

    Yes I might ask them for photos of indirect daylight. I also noticed that blemished pearl in the middle .Should not be there. Thanks for your reply.

    I have gone twice a year in the past but the past few years it's not been possible as our travelling has taken place during show times. That left me attending just once a year . I go for about a week. I get the majority of my buying done prior to the show and then use the show to find new sellers and odds and ends. I'll probably start going twice a year again after this year. My son is getting married in September so I'll miss that one. . but I'll be in S Cal so I can go to the Vault and shop instead

    Ohhh Katbran, please post a photo of your strand. I need some inspiration! I'm a color junkie too. I'd rather buy blemished pearls with strong colors than smooth pearls with dull colors.
