    Got some diffused light by the window today. Still hard to catch all overtones on tahitians though. Got some photos of my favorite pendants. First my green banded tahitian enhancer. I got this from Bob at Pearlsociety some years ago. It had another finding that I didn't like then but I changed it to an enhancer recently.

    Then my white south sea pendant, also from Bob. I had this one for years. This was the first south sea pearl I ever saw or owned. I was floored by the size and meringue (when you make meringue that is, not the finished ones) like glow.

    Then my frog pendant. I love this one, it's so fun. And the medium gold south sea pearl in it has a gorgeous luster. Also from Bob.

    I took some individual photos of my studs as well, while the lighting was descent. First 11 mm white south sea studs with rose overtone. I got these fron Bob at Pearlsociety years ago. They were dangle earrings and I didn't like the findings on them so I made them studs instead.

    Dark tahitian studs from Bob at Pearlsociety, 11 mm. These are tricky. They have a slight purple overtone if I put them in a white bowl filled with water. Otherwise they just look dark. Great with white pearls though.

    Next very baroque white south sea studs, about 13-14 mm. They are fun but a bit heavy.

    Lovely collection Charlotte. Is the little froggy a pin or pendant?

    Luvglitz, the frog is a pendant. It's so fun but not overly dramatic...works for everyday to.
    86Corvettegirl, thank you. The frog is special.
    Bweaves, thank you. It was'nt until I started writing out were I got my pearls from that I noticed this trend. Strand I buy from a lot of diffrent stores/websites. For studs I usually look at Pearlescence first, she has a lot of diffrent colors and sizes. I don't like to buy pearls I cannot see pictures on. Like chosing a size and overtone. I want to see the pearl, not have one of 20 or whatever. It doesn't matter that the photos online aren't always perfect, I can make an opinion on them anyway. For pendants I always look at Pearlsociety, there are so many kinds, Also with individual pictures. For me, as I cannot see the pearls in real life, its important to get an idea of what I want, to ponder what stud, strand etc I should choose. Putting them in my basket and then changing my mind, sometimes for weeks. When I opened the package with those blue green studs I was accually so pleased that I thought I would never need another pair...and then I bought some more.

    You have a fabulous collection! I must say you really captured the rosy overtone on those golden studs. I'm honored to be part of your collection of treasures!

    Thank you JerseyPearl, I love those golden studs. When I put them next to my deep golden strand from Cees it looks like they were matched for each other. That was so fortunate, since I guessed really. Wearing my mismatched studs today, with greenbanded tahitian enhancer but to tired to take a selfie today.
    Thank you 2thdktr, SydK and pammbw for your lovely comments.

    JerseyPearl, I have a better photo for you. Not-husband bought me a foldable lightbox (not a good one but it works on everything except for my drop tahitian rope). So a better photo on my deep gold south sea studs from Oceanscove and also of my deep goldstrand from Cees.
