    Hi Amanda - that's amazing - particulary the graduation at the back of the strand(s) which is 'little and large'

    until you get to the front when it's 'large and large'

    the 'clasp pearls' are gob-stoppers !

    "Our Lizzie isn't a Tahitian or baroque freshwater kinda gal. "
    That leaves a few more for us. Thanks for the great photos, Amanda.

    They are pretty impressive, I must admit to pearl-envy.

    I don't think the Queen's jewellary box is short of options for Her Majesty, even without the Tahitians / Baroques.

    If anyone would have a three strander of natural pearls it would be her majesty. I am guessing they aren't majorica (like Laura Bush used to wear!!!). Btw Caitlin, I love that picture of your grandparents. That's awesome!!! What a handsome couple!

    Yes Amanda, Thanks for those great pics. I love seeing the historical continuity, and hearing the progression & evolution of the strands.

    Caitlin, are your close up natural pics of pearls from your gran's choker?
