    The arrival of my new gem quality CFWPs prompted me to take some pictures, so here they are



    First off, 20in 9-10mm Presidential Line from Pearl of Joy with 6 diamond rondelles and diamond encrusted clasp

      Those are lovely - thanks for posting! My niece just announced her engagement, so I am hunting for a pearl necklace for her wedding day. These have such lovely luster, it is giving me ideas!

        Existing ? 9.5-10.5mm CFWP, about 17.5in long

        Quite spotted, however, a bargain for what I paid for the strand

          What I wore on my Wedding Day (only time I wore them), button CFWP, I made the links myself using silver, and one can see the silver is discolouring

          I shall use some of the pearls and make a charm bracelet, using White Gold

            My 7-7.5mm Akoyas, about 18in long, not the original clasp as I swapped all the clasps around recently

            This is the strand I shall pair up with my black Akoyas to make a double strand

              A CFWP rope that I made using 2 strands of pearls bought for 55 USD on eBay, not bad for their size, which is about 10-10.5mm

                All the Whites together

                Starting from the back:

                My ex-Wedding CFWP pearls
                Cheapo CFWP rope
                New Presidential Line from POJ
                New Gem Fresh Line from TOP
                ? 9.5-10.5mm CFWP that I already have
                My Akoya

                The quality of the Gem grade CFWP is staggering when compared with what I already have. So much cleaner and shinnier, definitely worth every penny

                    Here comes the black pearls

                    First, my baroque Tahitian, 9-11mm, about 20in long, I bought extra pearls to make it longer myself, and replaced the clasp from another strand

                      My Black Akoya

                      This I shall use to pair with the White Akoya to make a double strand

                            The Pendants



                            2 of these are fakes, can you spot them? They were bought for 34 Canadian Dollars each

                            I like their pendant designs, and may get real ones made one day

                              Earrings

                              On the left are the new 9-10mm Presidential Line from POJ, those on the right are my diamond earring jackets with the studs: diamonds, white and black Akoyas and plain gold studs



                              And the diamond earring jackets with various studs in place
