    Thanks for clearing that. Is there something special I should do to the attachment?

    Since I am partial to silver-rose pearls rather than "rose", I love the naturals even more!! I am swooning! Thanks for posting.

    Is it wrong to say I like them both? ....or rather I want them both! Lovely strands.

    As pink as the pinked hanadama pearls are, they look white against the skin. Amazing, isn't it?

    I love my natural white hanadamas soooooo much. We're a club of two. Anyone else want to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in perpetuity and join us?

    Pattye, Oh - I just can't stop taking pics. Got to stop - I love the way they show up in photos - sometimes different from what I see. Luckily it's been overcast for sometime.

    GemGeek, I'll have to probably skip the peanut butter and jelly and just live on the bread alone. All worth it though.

    And yes - the pinked Hanadamas look white by themselves. Also, they look better on a pinkish white skin than my brown skin.

    Cheers,
    SR

    Yeah Pattye! Now if people stop posting pics we'll know whose idea it was!
    On the other hand, I haven't posted any pics yet and lost my avatar. Probably I should just be quiet.

    I've got another shot that shows the difference. It is very clear on a black surface.

    Standard hanadama and the natural white hanadama.

    Oh, Lord, could the torture get any worse?????????? That black background is like a Sultry Night exclamation point!

    p.s.1 and that's one of the best shots ever to come out of your studio, as far as realism and depth. Cool!

    p.s.2 Jeremy, in one of your early videos you were in a room with pearls in glass jars, climate controlled, with special lights, showing examples of different quality pearls being bleached. Then, you brought out a jar with pearls in a light raspberry colored solution. Was that solution the 'pinking' solution you've mentioned?
