    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! Have been lurking for sometime watching everyone’s pretty strands!
    Will get some neck shots when I get some good light again.
    The burgundy Edison strand I got was FXBH-06
    The cherry arrived right before the VIP sales started. Was so tempted by the multi-colored rikiteas! Had to tell myself I don’t ‘need’ more

    My bronze Edison strand is heading back to PP. There were to many pearls with issues for me to be happy given the price.

    I bought a necklace during Black Friday sales that came about the time of the Edison strand. I love the luster and color of these Tahitians. I had planned to send it back because the center pearl has a pit and the start of a circle. I find this a bit distracting for the center pearl. However, after trying it on I like the look a lot. I think the price was very fair and will probably keep it.

    Hello ladies, I feel like I have been making non-stop confessions this holidays season on this thread lololol.
    Sooooo, after my initial 2 bronze strands (1 medium, 1 multi-deep), I grabbed another multi-burgundy strand when they were released on the PP site.

    I was really intending on keeping just two. My medium bronze strand had the same flaws as the type Annie posted on this thread, so I was contemplating sending it back and keeping the burgundy. But I spent a few days with them, and I can't send the back anymore. WOW I'm falling in love with these strands... the 3 strands kinda take turn popping when I pair them with different colored clothing. And at least the flaws on my bronze strand isn't in the middle so while they are on my neck, I don't notice them enough to be bothered.

    I have been wearing them every day this past week and discovered they pair super well with the monster ripples as expected, but also with off round/drop tahitians, like in Halcyon's picture. I took a bazillion picture under both regular indoor lighting (more direct light) plus diffused indoor lighting (where I turn my back against the light source). So I'm posting pictures here in pairs.

    Purr, the color in those pearls is beyond STUNNING! I am seriously kicking myself for missing out on the Edison’s. The pairings you shared are fabulicious!

    Love those Edison strands on you, Purranha. They look fantastic with the giant ripples. And, as I suspected, the colors ombré beautifully.

    You really need all three strands.

    Purr, I agree. All three belong on your neck.

    I LOVE my one burgundy strand. If it's not on my neck, it's on my computer desk so I can admire it. The colors are gorgeous.

    "Red's" burgundy and my "Lantern" are apparently circling within LA in some shipping fiasco...literally leaving and returning to what seems to be the same Distribution Center...good things come to those who wait...

    annie -- I love the design of your new tin cup. Wear it in health! (You could have that center pearl switched out in the future, but it'll be hard to find a good color/luster match to the other Tahitians.)

    Purr, all the Edison strands are lovely with beautiful colors. Personally, I don't see any flaws in the pics so I guess they're only seen upon close inspection IRL. I would have liked to gotten either a bronze or burgandy strand but I really felt like I needed to see them in person due to the costs. All 3 are beautiful & are definitely you.


    Annie, I love the style of your tin cup. Very different.

    What are we supposed to be seeing in "look at this guy?"

    When those strands are hooked together, they look like an amazing ombre' strand.


    Whew! The SS ombre' ropes are not calling me. I'm happy with my ombre' keshi rope.
