    Sure thing! The pearls are 7.5-8.0mm (I'm 99% sure) Freshadama grade.

    Mom comments that the necklace is "heavy" but not unbearably so, so I think for a triple strand that is about the max size to go for her for a wear-all-day necklace. She sure LOVES it though! I agree that they nest beautifully. PP did a great job with the stringing.

    I knew that Mom does not like pearls that nest right up against each other so we requested that the strands instead of 17/18/19" sit at 18/20/22" which I do think makes them just a tad more elegant and less restricting feeling.

    Thank you Andrew. I'm sure your Mom will love all her goodies for many years, especially coming from you. We have so enjoyed your Pearl journey and look forward to seeing mom's Tahitians in a neck shot soon.

    Hah, I see the neckshots of the Tahitian necklace are in very high demand! I am visiting grandparents for the next day or so, and when I get home I will be sure that mom gets them out to take a photo!

    Thanks for all the compliments, everyone.

    As so highly desired, here is a Tahitian neck shot! They are really beautiful pearls, and actually very easy to take photos of. Doesn't take much to get the colors in this strand to jump at you.

    There are so many pearls in the strand that have peacock tones in them that it's amazing. Truly a remarkable strand. I'll post a few more individual photos and some of the cool pearls + commentary when I update the KJM thread.

    For some reason, P-G's uploader makes the photo a little more pink-toned than it should be, but otherwise the colors hold true. (And, ditto, Purr! )
