    • I'm wearing my color-shifting pink-peach-gold strand today. The colors come out to play better on overcast days, but these metallic pearls love the sun, too.

      I love the feeling of oval pearls on my skin. I think it may be because more of the pearl's surface is in contact with the skin than when wearing round pearls.

      • Wow, those color shifting ovals are really pretty. I understand completely what you mean about having more pearl touching your skin. I think that's why I love to layer up the necklaces.

        The colors in that second photo are amazing.

        • I'm feeling blue today, in a good way.

          My new 6-7 mm Vietnamese blue akoya rope with my 9 mm Vietnamese baroque blue akoya necklace and my Kojima blue grey drops.

          I'm really amazed at how well the natural blue pearls photograph. They just glow. I compare them to my dyed blues, which look great in real life, but look terrible in photographs, which leads me to believe they don't look as good as I think they do.

                I used to think that some of Queen Elizabeth I pearls were just in shadow. Now I wonder if she's wearing blues or greys or Sea of Cortez similar pearls.

                  • Pearl Dreams - the second picture of your oval pearls look AMAZING!!! They almost look like hybrid of fire/peruvian opals with the dancing light that are characteristics of opals.

                    • They're very reflective on a sunny day, such as Monday when I took the photos. I suspect a lot of that color was reflections of my shirt!

                      To show the overtone colors I'll have to try again on an overcast day. A few of the pearls look greener when the light is diffuse, some pinker, etc.

                      • Have been on a fairly long hiatus from wearing pearl necklaces but it's my last few days of work before taking a (maternity) break plus all those delicious Vietnamese blues that I've been seeing online made me in the mood to dig out some pearls to wear.

                        Before twisting triple strand into torsade:

                        No natural light shots cos its too warm to be in the sun (I'm a mini heat generator now!).

                        • PD, those metallic ovals are beautiful! How fun to admire them in different lighting.

                          BWeaves, gorgeous blues!

                          Icy, loving that triple! The Tahitians with onyx links are cool, too. Are you close to delivery now? I hope you get a bit of rest before the second one arrives...

                          • Thanks Tucs. EDD is mid Jan but doc seems quite confident this one will be early. I'm crossing my fingers that she waits till Jan. I'm on leave from mid-Dec and plan to rest till I pop...

                            • Oh, that was myself two years ago. My DS was born on January 7, 2014. My DD was 22.5 months old when he was born. Exciting times -- good that you're planning to take some rest.

                              • Wow, I love the triple blues, and the twist with the 4th strand.

                                I was in another blue mood yesterday. I've decided the 3 strands satisfy my longing for a 100 inch rope. I paired them with my POJ metallic freshwater drops.

                                I keep eyeing up more of the blues on PP and POJ. Must stop buying pearls.

                                Today I wore The Swan on the yellow gold sleeve knit necklace.
