    Thanks everyone for the kind comments! I wouldn't have been able get these wonderful pearls without the excellent advice from this thread as well as all of the information I learned from the PG forum. I really appreciate this community and you have made me a pearl-lover for life.
    Cheers!

    Paradise indeed!

    I'm late to this thread but wanted to say, what a gorgeous choice! FWIW this size is what, reading pages of opinions, I hoped you'd get. I'm sure you will enjoy their beauty for years to come.

    Freshadamas have arrived!

    16" 7.5-8.0mm silver overtone Freshadamas from PP *swoons*

    They match the 7.5-8.5mm silver overtone Freshadama earrings I ordered previously. The earrings are rounder and more lustrous. Some pearls are a bit off-round nearer to the clasp, the most obvious being right next to the clasp, but I am so happy with them it doesn't matter. Needless to say, I am extremely satisfied.
    Photos taken under indoor lighting and then indirect light outdoors. I might post some neck shots in "Show us your pearls"; I am quite happy with the length, for me it is in between a choker and princess, and I love the way it drapes.

    Agreed, perhaps "classic" would be a more suitable adjective. The necklace is on its way and I and giddy with anticipation!

    Can't help but think that this thread is now mis-titled; nothing "basic" about those lovely freshadamas!

    I love pendants! That is a great look on your sister.
    Golden akoyas are definitely on my wish list. I am wondering if gold-peach freshwater metallics might be similar.

    With your skin and hair tones, you'd also look lovely in south sea gold pearls, or naturally golden Akoyas, I think (I AM the voice of pearl temptation!). Those colours wouldn't suit me at all, sadly, although I think they are beautiful in themselves.

    As an example of how delicate can work, this is one of my sisters - she's not tiny, although she's smaller than I am, 5 ft 4, British size 8 (I think that's an American size 4, but I'm not absolutely certain about that) wearing a very small and delicate pearl pendant.

    Really, there are no rules! Please don't buy into that old fashioned idea. I feel it's what each woman is comfortable with and fits her personal style and budget. Thankfully, large pearls are now available on even a modest budget.
