A little note on size and luster - they collude to create a bigger effect in drop pearls than you might otherwise guess. That's the power of seeing pearls in person and trying them on, since the "math" isn't necessarily meaningful unless you have tangible examples. Also: The middle photograph of a strand that you show above would make a scrumptious necklace.
I have sent of a question about the matching earrings but I fear it may be out of my budget the strand I am leaning towards is at the upper end as it is. Will keep you posted.
Ok the earrings are gorgeous but $230 so out of my price range. They did say I can match them in the future. Now I want them............
I chose my strand. I doubt it was ever in question I spent about 2 hours looking at about 60 strands this morning. I kept coming back to this one
Thank you so much everyone. I will show you neck and other shots as soon as I open the gift (not allowed to open it til Nov 12 which is our anniversary)
You have all been so kind and a tremendous help xx
Lovely strand, definitely would have been my choice too. I'm sure you'll enjoy it immensely.
Congratulations for your anniversary.
Fantastic. I really like that one too, without even knowing where it came from! It's a great choice!
Hey, which one was it? I can't open the picture, it says there's an error in the server"/" message?
It is the second strand on page 2
Love it! Look at that lustre! Can't WAIT for pics!!!

Ooooo, you got the one that was 'talking' to me with it's gorgeous colors! Good size too, 8something to 11something mm according to the site listing I can't open. Yea! Penny.
Thanks for taking us on this journey. I learned some stuff, too.
I hope we see you around even though you chose your strand and mission is accomplished.
