    WOW, a truly magnificent necklace! I smiled at the thought that some of the pearls are older than the pretty model.

    I included the video of that strand in the course after they made it. It's one of those "one in a million" pearl strands. Stunning!

    The pearls are to die for, but I also love the clasp.

    What an incredible accomplishment! Will this piece go into a museum somewhere?

    I didn't realize how BIG those pearls are until I saw them on the model. This is why neck shots are so important. It gives the pearls scale.

    But, Wow! What matching!

    What a stunning masterpiece indeed! Wow and 37 years in the making! A true passion and dedication, truly commendable! The narrative of the video states that the pearls are 18 to 22mm, but the video says something different... 16 to 18mm. Thank you for sharing this video!

    That is a true lifetimes work of artistry, craft and nature. Lifetimes of people and mollusks, and stunning in it's beauty. I hope it remains in the Phillipines as a tribute to the people and beauty there. I also hope it gets worn on occasion to share it's beauty in the best way possible; pearls are meant to be worn.

    I wouldn't trade it for my Harvest Strand ... I love it every bit as much
