    Default green-purple FW pearls

    Some natural color freshwater pearls have amazing hues. Look at the ones in this bracelet. I wear it today with Tahitian pearl ring. In some light conditions color looks the same...

    This purple/ green is really green/purple... I love it !!

    Ivona, those green-purples are amazing! and soooo difficult to find! Are they about 6mm? Love the ring too! Very graceful setting.

    Bracelet pearls are 6-6.5mm. I bought few strands. For bracelet I picked the greenest ones..

    Ring is 12mm. I bought it before I started being obsessed with pearls. As far as I remember it was my first pearl purchase.
    I bought it together with matching one pearl-on-the-chain-necklace. Those two pearls did not make me go crazy about pearls... My first baroque Tahitian strand did that.. LoL... the rest is history....

    Hi Ivona
    Most freshwater pearls that colour are dyed and/or irradiated. If dark grey/green ones are coming through it is big news.

    I'm sure that most are... Those on my picture are natural color.

Size:  29.2 KBHere's my necklace again with the purple/green fw, contracted with green chrysocolla from Israel. The pearls I picked for the earrings are very green.

    It's definitely a natural color, like Ivona's, but not easy to find.

    I have to confess that since I saw first time this necklace of yours Pattye, I started looking for good quality chrisocolla beads. I love the way you combined those FW's with it !!
    Yes, your pears are very green too.... and your picture is much better than mine.. LoL...

    Wow Ivona, your FW's look fabulous. In fact, green is my favorite color... Where did you find them?

    I have a bracelet of the purple-green freshies, and I love it. The pearls are very egg shaped, but have so much luster that my eye looks right past that to the shine and color. My supplier only has this color very rarely, and I do believe they are undyed.

    Ivona, yours are so, so lovely!

    Thanks, Katbran, the colors are opposites on the color wheel!

    Louise, lucky you to have a bracelet! We'll all be on the lookout for more of these purple/greens now, lol!

    What a beauty that necklace is, Pattye! Love the green in the lavendar pearls, and the gorgeous green beads, but most of all I love your creativity! Keep going strong, my friend! :-)
