    Hum, I know. They don't look so bad now that I look at them. And they're not bad. The dangles are actually quite lovely. But I have not worn them in decades, and I know I never will wear them again, and I need room in my jewelry case, if you know what I mean and I think you do.

    My very, very first earrings. I'll never wear them again now that I have the Hanadamas.

    My first attempt at finding pearl drops. They're lovely, but not really what I wanted. Now I've bought big drops, these seem way too small to me. Pearl Shrinkage Syndrome.

    I'm hoping someone on Diamond Bistro might give them some love. (I hope it's OK to say that.)
    I have a very difficult time wearing that type of pearl dangle. The little jump ring on the post digs into my lobe. May I suggest that you cut off the post jump ring and use the dangle drop part as an earring jacket...maybe you might get more use out of them with a diamond stud at top, or a different pearl stud on top.

    That is some enhancer! Your mother had a nice collection, you often show the items you inherited from her. Very nice. I'm now off to look at the Kojima site.

    I understand that. I've had a lot of jewelry that I just love but never wear, so I rehomed it. It always seems like a waste for a lovely piece of jewelry to sit in a box when someone could be using it.

    That's EXACTLY why I don't wear them.

    I really don't want to cut them up. The pearls are very well matched and good quality, and the jump ring at the top is too tiny to use as an earring jacket. I'm hoping that someone might love them. The trick is to not put the earring back on so tightly.

    Anyway, I don't think anyone here will want my pearls, but if you know someone who's looking for something inexpensive, I have them priced very low.

    BWeaves, it's fairly simple to fix. Just cut off the little loop ring under the stud cup and polish, then if needed attach a larger jump ring to the top loop of the dangle (remember a post is usually under 1mm thick). Of course if you want to sell them, I totally get it...but they are such a well matched set...

    Aha, I get what you're saying. So turn the dangle earrings into a stud with a dangle earring jacket, to keep the pearls as a set.

    I'm not up to the task. Do you want to do it? PM me what you'd charge, if you want to.

    I just finished restringing Mom's stick pearls with a new 14K gold fishhook clasp and gold beads on Beader's Secret. I love the luster on these pearls, but I'm not going to wear the necklace. I'm putting it up for sale on Diamond Bistro.

    Hahaha, I photoshopped my neck wrinkles into oblivion. But the pearls are not photoshopped.

    Right now, I have a giant bug bite or pimple thing dead center just above the start of my neck. Photoshop is around for good reason!!!

    Decked out in some of my favorite pearls while relaxing at the lake. Tiny pistachio akoya with my South Sea harvest strand around my neck, and my Burmese ring and Fiji bracket on my right hand and wrist. All from Pearl Paradise.

    Red, that's the way to relax!!!

    JP. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to put you on the spot. My apologies. Let me see if the dangle earrings sell before I try messing with changing them.
