  • I scrolled down real quick and thought, "Cicadalady is Diane Keaton!"

    • BritM, I take a few first photos with the front camera to see what fits into the photo, and then turn it to the back camera (because I'm using a really old smashed iPhone for it - the front camera has fuzzy photos) so I turn to the back camera and take a few photos "blindly" trying to keep same posture and phone distance then I crop them in some pre-installed program in my laptop (any laptop has pre-installed program that would allow you to do basic editing like cropping). I don't edit any colours, but in general for pearl photos you would want diffused daylight to bring out the colours)
      Go ahead - we are waiting for your photos now!

      • Awwww - BWeaves, you're too kind. I like to see people's faces occasionally in these posts. In fact, you're a wonderful example for us all. We tend to be way too bashful and modest. I especially like to see us smiling while wearing our treasures

        • Isn't it great that photos of a person wearing pearls always has that person smiling?

          • BritM - I use the reverse camera on my iPhone and then go into the editing thingy to crop. I like to see (and post) the pearls as they appear in the camera with minimal editing. I"ll sometimes dim the highlights, though, if the luster blows out the whites.

              • It's been too hot, sweaty and rainy to wear pearls, but I did manage to get a few in this past week.

                The Swan with my Kamoka black and white studs.

                Worn with my Mom's opal ring (which I just got resized to fit my ring finger), and Mom's jade bangle. The opal setting is super sparkly.

                  • BWeaves: I've always found La Pelegrina beautiful. I really tried to look for it on the forum, but haven't found any information, how big your La Perlagrina pendant is. Could you please post it? I would like to know it for comparison, because I'm lookin for drop pendants. Thank you in forward!

                      • La Perlagrina is 13 mm wide and 15 mm long. It has a smooth surface with a perfect teardrop shape and bands of color around it. What really sold me was the flower shaped bale in yellow gold. I think the price without a chain was roughly $785 USD or something like that, for comparison purposes.
