    Default My new Revenge Victoria Grayson strand!!!

    Hi Ladies! Not sure if any of you watched Revenge. While the series started strong, it definitely got crazier as the seasons progressed. BUT, the cast had some serious jewelries, and Victoria Grayson in particular had ridiculous pearls. I was in love with one of her pieces, and I think she actually wore 2 ropes together.

    So when PP had the Tahitian sale back in Aug, I jumped and got a 50" rope.

    Chenai selected 3 8mm-12mm multi-color strands for me

    I just received the package afterwork and OMG I LUV IT!!!!!!
    Couldn't wait to complete the strand - finished it off with a crystal ball (hopefully to be upgraded to diamond pave ball in the future), and a 13MM Tahitian that is a shortened pearl from my mom's jumbo strand a while back, and tassel ordered from Etsy.

    The lighting is terrible, but I will post neck shots tomorrow!!! I will be wearing this all week.
    THANK YOU CHENAI for working with me on this strand - this is my very first PP purchase and I LUV IT!
    Perhaps next year I can purchase another 50" rope to have a "true" Victoria Grayson strand!!!

    Wow, that is one lovely rope, and it looks just like hers!!

    (A second rope might make the whole thing a little on the heavy side... of course, if Victoria Grayson can wear it, so can you :-))

    Every time that show came on I would look to see if she wore pearls. That is one of the reasons I wanted a double strand this year for my birthday. Your new strand is beautiful and I just love how you are finishing it. Lots more pictures please and enjoy your new beauty.

    Gosh, Purranha, that is one amazing necklace! Or three!? The tassel is nicely proportioned, too. Looking forward to more pics!

    Does each of the ropes have a tassel? (I've never seen the show.)

    WOW Love it !! Chenai did a wonderful job with the colours and shapes ! Beautiful ! That's a wonderful modern take on the rope.

    I also love the pearls in Suits - on Jessica and Good Wife Christine Baranski's character , both characters wear fabulous necklaces !

    The diamonds they usually put in clasps and balls are not very sparkly unless they are VERY expensive. I asked PP to get me a pave' ball clasp in white gold with cubic zirconia, and I think they were hesitant at first, but they got me one, and it blows away any diamond ball clasp I've ever seen. Super sparkly, and it does not look fake. If I were you, I would not fuss about getting a diamond ball. The necklace looks amazing as is.

    Gorgeous and camping for neck shots!

    I think two 50 inches will be a tad heavy for comfortable wear but maybe I have a wimpy neck.
