The much-anticipated PP June special arrived this week and... the idea of it is absolutely beautiful:
But this one is going back. I was hoping that there would have been more contrast between the akoya keshi and the SSP -- that the akoya keshi would be a steely grey-blue rather than the silvery-white they turned out to be.
Also, the SSP were not as clean and less lustrous than I hoped. I think that these were supposed to be AA-ish. Am I being too picky or unrealistic?
Especially when I compared them to the SSP I got from Care Ehret.
I'll admit when I first got the SSP from Care Ehret, my reaction was: huh. So these are SSP? I guess you're more likely to appreciate what you've got when you've seen a range. I can now appreciate their sharp luster better in comparison with these from PP.
