    [ATTACPH]77848[/ATTACH]
    Purchased 5 strands of what I believed to be a good quality of Baroque 18mm pearls strands to knot myself for my sisters and I. I hope I did a good job picking strands. I am afraid to say how much I paid per strand, the novice that I am. My question is this. Are these acceptable for a good quality? And when picking a clasps for a pearl strand size such as these. What size should you get to be acceptable for single strands?

    They look very sparkly to me, Anna and such a lovely idea to make them for you and your sisters.
    I'm afraid I don't know enough about them to give an opinion of quality, would love to see some neck shots when you have finished.

      They look great Anna: thumbs up!
      Nice luster, can't see any important surface defects and they have nice rosť and blue overtones. I think you made a good purchase

        They look like big 'fireball' freshwater pearls, with very good lustre and subtle overtones. They need strong thread to knot because they are heavy and a clasp should be proportionate. If you have the opportunity, try various clasps against the ends. One will select itself because it will simply look 'right'

            Anne,
            Absolutely agree with Wendy! Your pearls look like very fine quality! I don't know how fancy a clasp you will be looking for, but the sterling silver/rhodium plated Orbit clasp comes in a large size and would add a nice length, over 1 inch. I also like large S clasps like these HERE:
            I've used this in gold-filled & love it.
