    No chatter about this launch? I loved the fireball with two rounds pendant, but I already own the same design in a different color family.

    I like the pearls, but part of me is wondering if they're real ... did they pass the tooth test? Of course, with a 14K clasp, they're probably real.

    I'll defer to the experts.

    Can you feel the crack when you run your fingernail over it?

    I'm considering a casual necklace as well -- are y'all using bead bumpers instead of knots? Seems like it would be very quick and easy.

    Natasha, you may spend some time searching the 'net, or you can contact Mikimoto directly. They may have some information on the clasp.

    Larger pearls are heavier, something to keep in mind.

    My long strand (30"? I forget) is graduated. I like that it always hangs correctly.

    Do you mean multicolor? When I think "ombre," I think of the way the pearls are strung, from dark to light and back again, as opposed to different colors strung together.

    I'd also like to speak up...

    I've had sellers regret for things I've sold on eBay -- and I simply remind myself of the reasons why I sold it. I'd rather have sellers regret than buyers remorse. :)
