    Andrew, that is one of the most amazing Tahitian strands I've ever seen. You and your Mom really got the top of the line.

    Some really little, plain and simply Calla Lily style earrings that we found today at Kohl's - they're just small freshwater pearls but they have an almost peacock effect.

    With the discounts and coupons, it came to less than $20, so a fun little addition here:

    Very cute setting. Linda Wald has a custom set of conch pearls she had made in a similar setting that is really nice. Hers ring like bells. Do these ring too?

    These sadly do not ring, but that sounds intriguing!

    Thanks, Katbran! We were happy to come across them.

    Thanks so much all! They are really fun and can't be beat for the price.

    Mom's clasp on the wonderful Tahitian strand stopped locking today we have no idea what's up with it -- shot an email off to the folks at Pearl Paradise.

    I have at least one PP necklace with that clasp that won't stay locked.

    What kind of clasp? I find sometimes the bent tongue part of the clasp on safety clasps becomes a bit flattened, less springy with time. I open it up very slightly -- widen the bend a tiny bit-- so that it again grips the ball part of the clasp.

    Another clasp, a sparkly gold ball that I got with my baroque akoyas a few years ago failed to stay closed. The tongue fit into the ball without any sort of safety. The weight of the pearls made the clasp open up the first time I wore it to go out-- and the pearls would have hit the ground if my reflexes hadn't been quick. I added a safety chain but found it annoying end eventually just bought another clasp entirely for that necklace.

    Thanks for the info!

    It's just the standard yellow gold ball clasp that comes with all their necklaces. Mom has a heck of a time with it, anyway, so if there is an issue, maybe PP will just restring with an orbit or something needing a little less blind dexterity
