    Hi Zeide,
    Those are wonderful too!!! Although I don't have your stature (5'5" on a good day), I love the big ones too! Even have some huge faceted quartz rock "Wilma" style necklaces. But the pearls are my favs. I will take some pics of my necklaces this week. I am not very good with the digital, and new at attaching them. But I'll try. I just got some pearls back from having Sharon Wakefield appraise them, so that is kinda interesting.

      Hi Pattye,

      Oh, please do. Wilma had a great sense of style, if you ask me. But then, when you are 6-foot napolitaine-blonde (some vanilla, some strawberry, some milk chocolate color) with hair well over her rear end, you need some substantial jewelry to balance things.

        Please please can we have photo of you wearing those big white FW pearls above to get some idea of proportion on the neck. I'm totally utterly and completely mesmerised by them.

        Please please.

          Hi Susan,

          Showing it on myself would involve either an awkward shot or somebody wielding the camera who does not have an eye for pearls. I'll try to recruit my daughter as a model although she is a bit taller than me.

            ....or your daughter could take a photo of you. We've seen the pearls already. I would love to see you wearing your beloved konks.

              Hi Susan,

              I am photoshy but I'll try. Please do not mind the sunglasses because my camera only takes decent shots in broad daylight and Fresno broad daylight is akin to Sahara broad daylight. Any attempt at using the flash indoors has so far yielded pictures reminiscent of the channel tunnel during blackout.

                I thought you might be. As soon as I pressed the 'submit reply' button I thought I shouln't be pushing this, she may simply not like having her photo taken (my husband hates the camera) - so thank you.

                Now, when you are ready to sell those pearls, if it is sometime before hell freezes over, please give me first refusal.

                  Hi Susan,

                  I'll put you on my list of pearl lovers to contact when I am updating my collection and this or one like this will be classified a "double."

                        Zeide

                        Matching THIS... Does such a pearl even exist ? To me, the picture shows a roundish ball of mystery light, the size of an eyeball, on a small lady. But you sure know how to swipe unsuspecting folks off their feet: 'Vermeer earrings'... right...

                        Actually, some of the pearls you have posted here almost do look like that (bright crazy, not big!).

                          Hi Ana,

                          What size do you think the girl is, so I can recruit somebody of the same stature to wear my earrings? Kidding aside, so far, the largest pair I have in white drops is 20x14mm. They are more oval than drop shape but they come pretty close. I am still looking for more to get the perfect one. I once saw the Manzini earrings and they are 16x12mm. I have a very good emulation of those in freshwater drops in both peach and white (1 pair each). To look like the Vermeer picture #2 (woman with a pearl necklace) I would need 22x16mm drops. The actual one in the Girl with a Pearl Earring looks more like an osmena (nautilus operculum) shell piece in the 30x22mm range. Any tips or link are appreciated. Nobody is perfect and I want the best.

                          These are close: http://cgi.ebay.com/14-Kt-Gold-Large...QQcmdZViewItem

                            I did actually create a pair of earrings to match that picture. Believe it or not, it was for the actual movie premier. We started working with Lions Gate on that premier, we were going to do standard studs for the carpet, and a pair to match Vermeer as a centerpiece. After a couple months of "talks", and after I had secured the pearls for the earrings, they basically dropped off the face of the earth (the Lions Gate studio PR). They asked me to make them... I visited 3 different companies in Hk to make the match, we talked several times, everything was a go... and they got busy and used fakes! I am not still sore about it or anything (actually a little bit). But I can say I will never help out Lions Gate again if/when they ask, and I never saw the movie! On principle.

                              Hi Jeremy,

                              What exactly dropped off the face of the earth, Lion's Gate or the earrings? If not the earrings, what size, what color, quanta costa?

                                Want to see some? (c'mon a my house...)

                                YES.

                                I have the same earrings in white. I got them because I cannot find anything closer to the Empress Josephine's enormous pearl drop earrings (hers had a single enormous diamond stud though) the kind you could see from the back of the ballroom. I did once see reproductions but those were too expensive for me at the time and they are not made anymore. Never mind, it's only the pearl effect I'm after anyway, ditch the diamonds they just distract from the pearl glow IMO.
