    Default My first strand: multi-color freshwater pearls

    Thank you to everyone who helped answer questions for me.

    These are not as dark and vibrant as the metallic freshwaters, but I think they are beautiful. They are a great first strand for me, and I have been enjoying wearing them in this lovely spring weather.

    I opted for smaller pearls (6.5-7mm) to get the length I desired (35"), within my price point. They are AAA.

    First shot is the pic PP sent me. I told them I wanted high luster and as deep of saturation of color as possible. I think they did a great job. I also opted for the ball clasp and to have them strung on lavender thread, as I thought this might bring out the colors more.

    A beautiful and versatile rope, perfect size, too! Love the lavender thread and layering with the interesting baroque pearl pendant.

    I agree. I love ropes so I can see the pearls while I'm wearing them. And fondle them.
