    BWeaves, your new baroques are lovely...I'd be tempted to slice them up and make a longer rope mixed with blue baroque akoyas with rose gold elements.

    BWeaves, LOVE the 3 necklaces together! to me, the small differences in color are more interesting than perfect matches and catch the eye more! And what a fab bagel rope!

    Lilpearl, lovely design for a ring! Is it a mabe pearl?

    Drooled over the Fiji pearls, but couldn't indulge this year, unfortunately. I did find a little greeny-gold silver baroque Tahitian in my stash, so made myself a "faux" Fiji on a chain!

    pattye - snickering over your "faux Fiji". Thanks for the giggle this morning. Next year hoping you can indulge in a single Fiji pearl for a necklace. Of course, it probably won't be as cute as this one. Very pretty pearl with those greeny-golds.

    Me, too. I ordered this strand as well. Mine hasn't shipped yet. Thank you for the photos -- I love that nested look with your mother's necklace.

    JP: Hehehehe, I like the way you think. Although, that would make it look a lot like my Everything Bagel rope, and I don't need two. But I'll keep it in mind. I did ask Erin at PP, and she said the rosey baroque strands had the best luster. They had some more silver to ivory strands, but they weren't as shiny. Anyway, I think I rather like that it doesn't match. It makes my pearl stash more interesting.

    Lilpearl: I love your ring. For some reason, it reminds me of a dragon's egg that's trying to hatch. I love it.

    Pattye: That is so interesting. I really like it. How on earth did you get the chain through the pearl?

    Ennui: Please post yours when you get them. TWINSIES!!!

    Lilpearl: your ring is lovely.

    BWeaves: All of your strands are beautiful and I like the picture of you wearing them all together!

    Thank you, BWeaves, the pearl already had a 2mm hole when I got it from John Tu. It was in the bargain dish ($6, lol) because of the funky top. It's only about 14mm by 11mm. At first I tried it on leather, but the dark chain is more year round for me.

    Thank you, Red, JP and PD! I do the dark patina finish on the chain myself.

    Now I can really see how large your pearl is Lilpearl, you might need to change your name, lol!

    Bweaves..woah! I am loving the three strand look! I have some baroques from PP of the same size that are also super pink (but also super lustrous) that I was wary of at first but am in love now. They are one of my main go-to strands. They look even better with your other akoyas!

    Lilpearl - that is one awesome ring! Wonderful choice. (I agree with pattye that you may need to reconsider your name lol)

    Pattye- I love your faux fiji! I am fiji-less at the moment also, dreaming of a piece of my own.
    You can never be too dressed-up.

    Thanks, lary007. I feel more confident about the baroque akoyas knowing that the good ones are all pinked. 35 years ago, I only wanted pinked pearls, as I thought that's what they were supposed to look like. But even my old pearls aren't nearly as pink as these. But they read as white from a distance.

    I've always wanted a triple strand necklace, but I'm actually having more fun inventing triples from my stash, as opposed to having an already made to order triple (although there may be one in my future). And I keep forgetting about my dog collar. Now that it's getting colder, I need to wear it more. It's a bit too much when the weather is hot because it keeps my neck warm.

    Now I keep lusting after a large SS necklace. I didn't like SS pearls until I saw the really good ones at PP and in everyone on PG's collections. Now, I'm lusting after one. It never ends.

    BWeaves, my baroque akoyas from PP's 2015 April special are also pinked. They look white against my skin but pink when laid next to my other white strands on a white background.

    What shape of SSP do you like more-- round or baroque?
