I have decided to get a 16' AAA akoya but can't decide on the overtone. I know for sure that ivory doesn't work for me. i am Chinese with fair skin but i do get a little tanned in summer so my color changes throughout the year (just to complicate things a bit!). I've tried pink and silver which seem to be both ok. But I don't like the very pinkish ones that miki carries (ar... it's hard to describe the overtone and i don't have any photos that really capture the color to illustrate what i mean... sorry!)... anyways, i received 2 photos from Mia which she put a rose, and a silver-rose side by side. The rose one seems a little too pink in one photo but in another, i just can't tell the two strands apart.
1) are overtones obvious in person?
2) would silver-rose 'appear' to be more shiny because of the silver overtone?
