    Sueki - I am just so so impressed by your city strands - don't they look fantastic!! And why have one when you can have two?? Truly they look beautiful on you - I was wondering if yours had arrived yet! Thanks for the pics!

        Elisa,
        I am chuckling at your comment - you are jealous of me for my two strands; I am jealous of you for your figure.
        You look absolutely stunning in that photo. and I'd happily trade both my City strands ( and a couple of Cortez strands, too ) if I could look as good as that.

        And thank you Nerida, Pattye and Robin for your comments.
        Elisa is so right - everyone is great on this forum and it is truly a real pick-me-up.

          I love seeing all this interest in the opera length pearls. They look great on you as well, Sueki. I think they are very elegant on a woman.

              Sueki -- that was genius to get them strung in different lengths so you could wear them together. Double elegance! I think your neck looks lovely. (At least you have one -- mine seems to be disappearing!)

              What a great treat to come home to so many great pearl photos in one night. I can't own them all, but my friends share them with me...

                Elisa,

                The clasp on your vintage akoyas is so lovely!!! Thanks for sharing!

                    Another Newbie Question

                    I love the city strand, especially the double. Gorgeous together. However that's out of my price range right now. I'm considering the 18" Freshadama vs. the 18" Presidential Pearls. I know it's 2 different co's, but do they buy from the same place? Are the pearls about the same quality?

                      Hi Drucilla,

                      Freshadamas and Presidental pearls probably have the same quality as our vendors have the same demands reg. quality and so on. I do think they buy from different farms though, at least that is what I believe. Perhaps Amanda (Pure Pearls), Jeremy (Pearl Paradise) or Kevin (Pearls of Joy) will answer this question.

                        Thanks, Jerin

                        They both seem to be the "next step up" from the regular freshwaters. ?

                          Well, for our Vendors on the Internet the regular freshwaters would mean AAA-grade, the next step would be Gem quality (no orient but otherwise as the Freshadamas/Presidental pearls) and the last step is the Freshadama/Presidental quality with orient showing... Check the posts for more information...

                              Sueki,

                              your Citystrands look great on you! I have to look if I have 2 opera lengths I could wear together as well. But I think I have only each of the opera lengths in different colours. What would you think about wearing 2 colours, as for example white and lavender? Would that disturb the overall look?

                                Ooooh, Jerin, you're telepathic !
                                My sole reason for buying one City strand was because I have a 38 inch lavender strand which I wear together with an opera length akoya necklace.
                                The akoyas are old and yellowed, so I thought it'd be nice to have some white pearls to team with the lavenders.
                                But, of course, by the time I'd accessed the PearlParadise site (all of a couple of seconds) I'd decided that two City strands would be even nicer than one......
