      Kalmen, I got the pairs from these two batches (see pics). The rest of the pearls I purchased from her were not listed on Etsy. I contacted Yunlan directly for the color and overtones I looked for, I told her I only wanted the sharpest luster possible from her stock. She accommodated my request promptly.

      And I bought these: 1st row 1 pair of pearls. I'm curious what they look like IRL

            Pareltje, thank you for showing us your photos and the vendor's photos so we can see how the colors and luster compare ... very helpful. Too funny; I was thinking if I got that lot of pearls, I'd make charms and hang them from a chain ...

            Trulyviolet, it happens to us all the time. Get up off the floor SLOWLY, settle into a comfy spot with a cup of a comforting beverage to restore your strength, and browse here some more

              Pareltje, what gorgeous pearls and great choices. FW ripples are my favorite pearls because I am drawn to metallic pinks and mauves. I have been so self indulgent lately, more pearls will have to wait (sigh).

                Pareltje -- they are very pretty! I recently purchased metallic white edison freshwater pearls from the same vendor, still has no time (and no skills) to string them yet. Cant wait to see what you'd come up with for these lovely pearls

                    Pareltje, are the pearls you bought drilled or is there an option to have them drilled?

                      Of course, hang around! We are your people.

                      The pearls remind me of the candy colored pearls. They put regular pearls in the shade. I'm in love with the one that looks like a pink cloud, or sherbet.

                        I had a not so great experience a while back but I am glad to hear others more positive. It might be worth another attempt. Thanks for the insight
                        No, Midge said, I take it back. I wouldnt get a mink coat the first thing. Know what Id do? Id get a string of pearls. Real pearls. Yes, Annabel said, slowly. I think thats a kind of a good idea. And it would make sense, too. Because you can wear pearls with anything.

                            There is an option to have the pearls drilled. But since it was my first purchase with this vendor I didn't ask her to drill them. I figured if I don't like them I can still return them. This is often not the case with drilled pearls.
                            Ripples are my favorite too. I can't get enough of them. They seem to exhibit more characters than round perfect pearls

                              That's it, Cathy. I'm going to make charms out of them and hang them on a chain, be it necklace or bracelet LOL

                                Lisa C, some of them look like Kevin's candy colored pearls. So far they are really my favorite color, there is so much iridescent and the color shifts when you move the pearls around...
