    Ooohhhh!!! I can personally show u where I get that massive pearl! It wasnt a big shop. It was one of the shop at paddys market that sells pearls. You chose your pearl, chose settings, they will drill it n put on the setting for u. Or made your jewellery in Cabramatta, its not that expensive. Made your own design, chose ur gold crt 9 or 14 or 18 ct. Then 2 days later...voila!! I asked how much to make a pearl ring with 14 ct solid gold only cost 200 Australian $ or 158 US$. (My own pearl with gold setting from them). Total cost about 300$ with the pearl n the gold n cost to make. What can you get with that price online? Probably pearls set in silver or gold filled or gold plated or leather.

    I was just sitting in my living room reading, when it occurred to me that the light seemed especially nice.

    I wonder what effect the solar eclipse would have on photographing our pearls? I may take a few shots later to see.

    Thanks Cicadalady! This is a multicolor strand from PP that I bought from its original owner.

    This photo shows the strand in its original form. I replaced the center dark pearl because it had some blemishes on one side that I found distracting, and somehow the pearl always managed to rotate so that the blemishes faced outward! I also replaced 2 silver colored pearls with the 2 peacock pearls that are now 2 pearls away from the center pearl, and rearranged some of the other pearls to balance the colors in the strand. It has less light/dark contrast now but I like the overall look and colors better. I wear this strand more often than my other pearls.

    This is one reason why I have to be able to restring my own pearls. I'm kind of persnickety.
