I too wanted to thank you for all of the great pix of your pearls!!! You are, indeed, a lucky girl to own such wonderful and beautiful things as these strands.
And you are not going to "burn in hell" for purchasing them. Life is about enjoyment and following what you truly enjoy is life itself. That's the way I would look at the purchase. It's an affirmation of life! Good for you and I hope you wear your pearls every chance you get.
