    Gorgeous! :)

    Honestly as long as the magnetic clasp feels secure, I'd leave the strand alone. It hangs beautifully and is a great length on you.

    I really like the clasp, too. How does it open? Is it magnetic?

    They look like SSP to me.

    Are you sure there are no knots between the larger pearls? I have read that there are knotting techniques that make the knots seem almost invisible (I think it was...

    Quoted for truth!



    Great choice! The versatility will make this one a strand you wear often.

    Actually, that's only true for very small pearls. The per cent larger/heavier decreases as the pearls themselves get larger.

    Katbran, you motivated me to buy one. I've always wanted a digital one.

    My husband has a micrometer but I hate to use it on pearls as it's brass.

    You couldn't see your posts right away because they had to be manually approved. We'd be inundated with spam if all new members' posts appeared automatically. :rolleyes:

    Pattye, you are so right about the chain fitting through the bail! I have some excellent chains dating from before gold got so expensive, and the ends do not fit through my newer pearl pendant...

    What is your budget for the finished item? Unless you are committed to assembling the necklace yourself, it may actually cost less to buy it ready-made.

    For comparison, check out ready-made...

    Also, be aware that 1mm difference in diameter makes a larger difference in size (i.e. volume).
    See: Comparative pearl sizes-- how much difference does 1mm larger really make?

    The left one is a little smaller than the right one, but both are within 9-10mm...

    I never expected to buy so many strands when I first started buying pearls. Are you so sure you won't want to buy more strands later?
    Maybe this strand doesn't have to be the One and Only.
