    I've done the Pearls as One Course, but shall do it again to refresh my memory. I was doing a little more research and saw that Pearl Science Lab also holds short...

  9. Fallen in love with (slightly?) Baroque Southsea Pearls

    All along I've been thinking that I was a strictly perfectly-round-pearl kind of girl, except for perfect drop shapes. Then I saw these (2015) pictures of fashion blogger Peony Lim's gorgeous...

    I know ;) That strand just blew me away. I had to talk some sense into myself into not getting it, because for 10 minutes an irrational part of me was like "what if I never see a strand like that...

    Hi Pattye,

    Sorry, I only just got home last night. It's actually not perfectly round, so 11.85 x 11.45 mm according to the lab cert. I did think it is very unusual too, so I bought it when I saw...

    Thanks for your kind remarks! :D

    Also, at the risk of this turning into a "me and my pearls" thread, here is a (admittedly dark) photo of the 9.0mm mikimoto A+ studs I once owned, in case anyone...

    Okay!

    I just deleted and reattached the photos; they are all quite small, so hope it is showing up for everyone now. It's showing up on mine at the moment!
