    Wink Mother's day Pearls for my dear Mom

    I ordered some pearls from the Pearl Outlet and went with an easy clasp for her to open. They are the 8.5mm AAA. The color is seriously amazing. There are some flaws in 3 of the pearls and a few scratches but I guess I noticed them because my freshadamas are pretty flawless or otherwise I would not have noticed??

    Okay, here are a few pics for fun and one of me wearing them for the picture. I just love the color and pics don't do the color justice.

    Hi Hanaleimom, they are the grey Freshwaters; sorry, forgot to add that. They do have blues and lavenders in the color which are lovely but the camera didn't pick that up; thank you.

    Skypearl, I like the clasp too. My Mom's arthritis makes it hard for her to use fish hook clasp. The ball clasp has to be large for her to use it.

    Skypearl:
    That clasp is adorable. You look lovely in your mom's pearls. Hope she will be extravagantly happy with them. Does she know or is it a surprise?

    Skypearl, the greys are AAA tops, not gem, so there is a margin for some surface blemishing. Other than that it's great coloration, luster, everything! I already got some grey AA/AA+ freshies beaded up myself which were really cheap, otherwise I would have gone for a large AAA strand too. I would have bought some earrings to match if they were still available. Oh well, saves some money for the PP sale.

    Thank you; the clasp is so tiny. The macro setting on the lens make the flower look BIG but it isn't. It is perfect. I was so excited to give my mom her pearls today; we celebrated her birthday and Mother's day today. The pearls looked fabulous on her!

    Thank you all for your super sweet words Ramona, Claudenancy, Pattye, Barbie, and Hanaleimom


    eta: I took a picture of them of her so pretty soon I will post it.

    Those pearls are just lovely, and I'm sure she loved them but I bet your mom thought them unnecessary. I bet she knows deep down (or probably right up front) that she's utterly spoiled every day, just having such a wonderful person for a daughter.

    Ksinger, aww, thank you dear friend! I am seriously so lucky to know you!
    My mom wanted me to keep the pearls but I told her no way. They were for her; she is a sweetie that way. She was so happy; I am glad she loved them. She so deserves and much more.
