    • I agree - the pearls in a harvest strand should be from one source. Anything else is a 'pearls off the floor/leftovers' strand

        Well, I love my leftovers strand. I waited a very long time to be able to get it and it makes me happy. I think it's beautiful regardless of its humble origins, while I also greatly admire the real thing.

        • They are real pearls and that is what matters IMO, not whether they were all plucked out of the oysters during the same calendar year.

          • I'm with you on this one GemGeek, and Pearl Dreams. It took me quite some time to assemble my harvest strand, graced with the mermaid/octo clasp! This strand, as well as the others I assembled were not done so with left over or off the floor pearls; an implication that suggests their creation was an after thought, without intent. I spent quite some time selecting not only the lots, but the individual pearls from those lots to create the several strands that I have made. Without being able to actually control the content (i.e. not owning the pearl farm) I suspect most strands of this nature are assembled from not only a variety of harvests, but also a variety of farms. I define a harvest strand as a representation of the types of cultured Tahitian pearls farmed.

                • Thank you, everyone for the nice words. It was Josh's first Kamoka harvest strand that put the desire in my heart, but I wanted a long rope, and since I purchased my house, funds for pearls have been small. Seeing all the fabulous SSP harvest strands at the ruckus was just more temptation. Thanks to a tip from lmgarden, I was able to get an affordable long rope with black, gold and silver Tahitian and SS pearls.

                  I wouldn't want to take away from anyone who has the real thing - they are such treasures - especially knowing their provenance and even knowing the farmers. If I had the wherewithal, I would prefer to buy from them. Pearl farmers are special people and so are the collectors who support them.

                  • GemGeek- You look gorgeous in your pearls and they make you happy and that’s what counts! Enjoy that strand- you look fantastic wearing it!

                    • Exactly how I feel, Blaire! I'd love to get allll the awesome collector's items that our fabulous community of pearl farmers create, but juggling tuition for two kids in daycare in the DC area means I can't get all the pearls I want. Yours are stunning and you look so happy in them, and that's the point, isn't it?

                        While I believe a harvest strand should be from a single source, single harvest, I don't think an imitation harvest strand is a leftovers strand. A faux harvest strand takes just as much work to put together, and is going to look best with quality pearls. It just needs to be described as harvest-style strand.

                        • Blaire,

                          That's a beautiful strand. And in fairness, I believe that PP called their strands harvest strands when they were made in house (not the Jewelemer ones, but the Tahitian ones that were one of the monthly sales a few years back).

                          We might be strand sisters. Mine is quite similar. It's become the one I reach for the most.

                            I'm ok with calling it a harvest style strand, but I think it might be confusing to call it faux. To me that would imply the cultured pearls themselves are fake/faux/imitation.

                              Sweet strand, Pearl Sis! Yes, I remember Jeremy calling them harvest strands - we talked about how much work they were. Jeremy secretly loves matching pearls! I can't tell you how much I love my necklace and also my baby Edison rope. Happiness does come from pearls!
