    Kalmen, your ripple pearl is so colorful. That ring would get me in trouble while driving, lol.

    MSC, that gavel charm is great.

    Red, your Burmese South Sea pearl just glows – lovely!

    For those who don’t know, the PP Oracle setting was designed based on a custom ring PP had created for Caitlin years before to hold her “purloined pearl.” (Story of the pearls here: ) Red and I both admired Caitlin’s ring, so when we bought Burmese White South Sea pearls at the 2015 Ruckus, we asked John if he could create similar settings. I expected to pay for an expensive custom setting, but PP decided to include the new Oracle setting in its standard line-up, so we got a good deal when it debuted as a Friday special.

    Here is Caitlin’s ring:

    Whoops, I forgot the link for the story of the purloined pearls. It is pretty entertaining if you have not heard it before.

    Thank you, SunSeeker, Sanippy, JulieBeth, Jersey, BWeaves and Cathy. I just received the earrings last week. The Blossom settings were courtesy of Newberry. She knew I had been waiting for PP to get that setting back in stock, and when she decided to move a pair of white pearls from the Blossom setting to leverbacks, she kindly gave me her Blossom settings. I am so thrilled to finally have pistachio earrings to go with the strand (which is a summer favorite of mine).
