    Default PP new site design

    Anyone else seen it yet? I think I actually preferred the older one. There's a new monthly special up too but I'm going to wait for the mother's day sale before I make any decisions.

    PS I'm not a troll

    The photos are smaller on the new design. You have to click on each item to get a closer look. The older design has larger photos. But again, you can view all 6 or 7 pages of pearl on 1 screen. The older design didn't hold 50 or 60 items on 1 screen.

    I noticed that I can't log into my account. There is no link for it, yet.

    IMHO: I don't like it at all. I liked the old layout so much better.

    It has more things - nice, especially the finding sections. But it seems busy to me and not as classy. I don't like the candy displays, I kept thinking about chocolate getting on the pearls. Also the pics are showing very bright/exposed on my computer. But I like the stuff on it! I'm wondering about the anticipated Mother's Day sale. Isn't Mother's Day just 11 days from now?

    I think its fine myself. Easy to navigate. I think the free form look from before looked possibly a bit more sophisticated. But it seems there are more options and links now. I liked them both.

    I like the alternate views options. And the candy thing is cute, conceptually, but really makes me want to grab a cloth and clean off any chocolate that might be on the pearls!

    Ack, Waimeamomi beat me to the chocolate comment. But it's good to know I'm not the only one who cringed!

    I think the blue on the page (and the contrast between all the bright white and the bright blue) may not be the best color to complement the pearls. There's also something about the whiteness/brightness of the background and pictures on the website that I feel doesn't do the beauty of the pearls justice. I do, however, like how you can see more items on one page and some of the new website functions. I really like how you can view extra pictures and how it shows the AA+ and AAA side by side. The only thing I would suggest is adding a brief description under each necklace (e.g., body color and overtone for Tahitians) since the pictures are smaller, so you don't have to click on each one.

    The chocolate is cute, but it makes me want to eat it.

    Btw, I love the graduated akoya strand. I'm glad I didn't give into temptation and buy the 7-7.5 April special.

    I think someone beat you to it. There are empty wrappers in the pictures. I have to admit that I've always been a fan of pictures of jewelry with flowers.

    Great minds and all that. I did cringe!

    OMG! NO! I want them now. I'm staring more at the chocolate than the pearls. It makes me want to go run to Godiva.

    I agree though, I think flowers would be lovely.

    Alright, I'll confess. I ate the truffles. Mmmmmmmmmm. Actually, all the talk of chocolate made me hungry, but all I had was a granola bar.
