    This is closer to natural color to my eyes. Though it is not two tone, the colors swirl on rotating the pearl.
    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.

    • Katbran, those earrings are fabulous! You guys are making me want some ripples...

      "I just want to keep it in my loose gem collection, pull it out ever so often and call it "My Precious" lol"
      BPDDC, quite surprisingly, I know this feeling.

      • BPDDC - I need you to come over here and take my photos...that's the colour ! lol Well done..

        thank JP and Pareltje - very kind words ! I've been having fun making all sorts of dangles .. my little torch is hard at work ! I love my rustic linked circle dangles ... I've never worn dangle earrings..now I can't stop making the findings lol I'm sure I'll get a new obsession ...hopefully it will swing back to my shopping bags of pearls that are scattered forgotten about the floor ...

        And now back to Ripples !

        • Katbran, those earrings are beautiful. I love dangles.
          BPDDC, I always photograph my pearls in the shade or in indirect light. Try blocking the light with your body, you'll see more colors in the camera. I always use either a white towel or a white box as the background. Sometimes I use a light tent to bring out all the colors.

          • I got my kong pearls ripples. I bought a small lot.
            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 Click image for larger version

                • I had to pull out my strands of ripples to play with them...
                  Your pearls are beautiful! I can see an octohead or two in there.

                    • I'm ashamed to say but my phone is prob 5 years old now. I refuse to spend $$$ on one and Im a gadget nerd. I used a home made light box on the back porch no direct sun just day light. Same ole box that made Hector (Sheri's octo) colors pop.

                            This pix shows a lot of colors. Did you take this one in a light box? Camera also influences the end result. I found my Olympus exaggerate the blue color (good for scenery though) and my Fuji exaggerates the yellow. I don't like to edit my pearl pix except crop here and there or resize. When I take pix of pearls, I pick the best angle to show all the colors, this is not an easy job though.

                            • Hello everyone. I have been lurking in this forum for long, and got to know about kongspearl in etsy. Previously I have bought only from Wen. Well, this necklace is on its way home from China
