    Default Tahitians

    Here are some pictures, as promised. If I can get them uploaded. The bottom one has some surface flaws, but I like the colors.

    I like the first one too. But the bottom one has 2 colorful pearls in the center.

    It's easy to see why you like the colors in the second one. Luscious!

    Without a preference for color, the first looks allot better...

    I like the shape of both for different reasons, but I prefer the color of the first.

    Somebody asked for more pics. What do you like or dislike about these?
    I see some of the color has been lost in uploading the photos.

    Personally, I am not keen on rings on pearls, or obvious drop shapes in a strand, especially in the middle, and I cannot wear anything that is yellow/peach/brown/beige.

    Hence I prefer the first strand

    Default Tahitian strands

    Hi Miriam,
    Isn't it a bit disappointing when the pictures we uploaded lost their colors? I noticed that with all of mine too. Oh well...

    Shapes and colors are very personal. I do like drop, oval, round, circles ... you name it. However, the circles must not have lots of rings in them. I don't like those with too much circles where the pearls look all crinkly (and none of these strands exhibits that characteristic). The drop & oval shapes tend to be more smooth, thus allowing you to see the luster on "more" surfaces, IMHO. I like pearls with intense colors and stay away from the bronze & copper overtones. They'd be ok if there only a couple in a multi-color strand, not an entire strand. The 2nd picture has 2 very colorful pearls in the center (I like those pearls). I like the first and fourth strands due to colors. But I am not too keen on some of the pearl shapes of the 4th. They look plump (that's a good sign), but some seems to be slightly short. I think the first is the best of the bunch. Just my 2 cents.

    The second one looks multi-toned to me. The first looks as if it may have both a silver and a gold overtone. If so it's really pretty.

    Yes, the second does have several different overtones, although the whole strand doesn`t give the impression of a multicolor strand.
