  • Suchi, your necklace looks fabulous! Mine looks like that too under incandescent light. If you want to see the purples you may have to take them out, not in direct sunlight but more in the shade. Actually my pearls look copper in direct sunlight. Let your pearl acclimatize with your surroundings first. My necklace also still smells fishy and I have been hanging it in my closet for a few days already.

      Yunlan from kong pearl is incredibly responsive. I like the quality of the pearls I got. No idea what I'll do with them. They are currently undrilled. I'm thinking a pendant for the really big one and maybe a ring for those dark dark ones.
      I'm undecided. So I shall do what was suggested earlier and call them My Precious. Here are the pics in shade and in direct sunlight [ATTACH]46483[/ATTACH]
      glad to see they went to a good home. I was eyeing them but wasnt fast enough hehe

        Thanks Pareltje. Hopefully the smell from my strand will dissipate in a few days.

        • Both of theses strands look great ! I've bought several deeply coloured Ripple strands but they all wash out a bit in direct sunlight . Just as Tahitians can turn grey my Purple /Rose lavender ones go sort of ...tan .. hard to describe. But there is no doubt that direct sunlight doesn't do much for pearl coulors .

          You should both be very pleased with your purchases...the colours look wonderful!

So maybe will show darker colors in shade or direct sunlight. Pearls have a strong fishy smell which is actually preventing me from playing with them[ATTACH]46610[/ATTACH]
            these colors while less saturated seem to be very good as well

              Are you saying they fade over time or that the colors don't show up well in the sun, or both? I'm hoping you don't mean fade.

              • I think she meant that the colors don't show up well in direct sunlight. I've never heard of pearl colors fading, apart from conch pearls, which do fade if exposed much to the sun.

                        • Thanks everyone for liking my strand. Lugana, will post neck shots in a few days since my Pearls still have this fishy smell.
                          JerseyPearl I love your etsy shop.

                          • Thank you suchi! I appreciate the compliment. I believe there are a few posts on how to remove the fishy smell...maybe one of our good searchers can find a link.

                            • JerseyPearl actually Pareltje has suggested keeping them in a well ventilated room. Now the smell is 80% gone. Hopefully will be able to start wearing it from this weekend.
                              I am already looking at more Pearls. Somebody save me.

                                Sorry ! Didn't mean to panic anyone !! Pearl Dreams is correct ...the direct sunlight washes out the appearance of the colour ...the colour itself doesn't not fade. Don't worry !

                                Those are really nice pearls ! I'm impressed ! The price is great ...not that far off the price at a show.
