  • Opera length lavender freshwater strand

    I needed a pick-me-up, so I treated myself to a 35” strand of lavender pearls from Pearl Paradise. It worked! I’m immensely cheered up! They are 6.5-7.0mm AA+ freshwaters. To me they seem very round, very lustrous, and very smooth. I know there are higher grade pearls, but these are so lovely. Of course everything about packaging, shipping etc. was perfect as always. When I am a bit presentable I’ll take a photo with them on. They’re a wonderful icy cool shade.

    My photos were taken in natural light. The background is grubby but the light is good.

    Thank you for looking!

    Those are beautiful Multichrome. They will look lovely doubled up or worn long.

      Those are lovely - I can see why they cheered you up. The surface looks excellent. I like 6-7mm for ropes - very wearable.

        Lovely! I cheered myself up with some earrings from PP a couple weeks ago :-) I've been wondering whether the lavender color would work for me but haven't tried any out yet. I'm looking forward to seeing a modeled pic when you get to it!

          Such a gorgeous strand. I bought some circled south sea pearls from Pearlescence recently and it cheered me up as well.

            Thank you for all your comments! I will try to post higher resolution photos, because these images seem to have been reduced in quality when I posted. The surfaces of the pearls look immaculate to the eye—I need to get out my loupe and see what they look like then. They also appear VERY round to me.

            I also have a 35” 8.0mm white FW strand of same quality I got from PP earlier in the year. It’s also beautiful. I’ll post pics of it soon when we get some sun. I decided on the smaller size for this strand because I wanted to be able to knot it. Also, a 35 inch strand of 8mm pearls is HEAVY. So luxe, though!

            Wishing you all a good day,

            Cece

                I uploaded higher resolution images here—I wasn’t able to link to them individually in a post. I’m going to work on getting my settings here to let me post better pics.

                  BWeaves, yes, what a lovely detail in the color of the thread! It’s just a scrumptious strand.

                    Trying to see if I can get a higher res photo to load. Hopefully y’all won’t mind the extra eye candy.

                          P.S. If these are AA+ I would probably faint at the sight of lavender Freshadamas.
