    Thank you everybody! I am very lucky! Cees posted another fabulous batch of Tahitian pearl strands. More pastel colored than mine. All of the strands including mine is Robert Wan pearls from Gambier Atoll. I hope another PG member got the other strands! Soooo beautifuuul, colorful and nice sizes too! Can't beat it, go check his facebook! I hope you got one of those strand before they're gone Corvettegirl!

    I just got sms from fedex that my pearls will arrive tomorrow yaaaayyyy!! Oh and it's free delivery hehe! Can't wait to get em and hold it in my own hand! Be sure that Santa wants to wrap it and put it under the tree but hope he'll let me take a few pics before that.

    Helloooo!
    Thanks Marianne, I do have a very nice Santa.

    Katbran Cees have another batch uploaded. Theres a big one 15 mm by 12 mm. Wish I can get those too!

    The package have arrived today!! Fast delivery too! Sent Wednesday from Bangkok and arrived in Australua by Friday today! Santa let me rip it open and take few photos out of it! I put it inside one of my wooden pearl box.

    Outside its a bit outcast but I opened all my windows and let plenty of natural lights came in. Hope the photo wouldn't be too bad but it just didn't capture the color justice! I will do something special with this strand. I'll have a big clasp specially made and maybe few diamonds spacers. It will take at least a year in the making. Have to save up haha. But it will be worth it!

    Few neck shots!

    I just tie the know at the back of my neck. After spacers, knots and big clasp its going to be longer. Might have to remove 2 or 3 pairs of pearls to make it choker style maybe. Ill turn that into dangly earrings. Now thinking about gemstones that might enhance and highlight the colors of these pearls...any idea??

    Fabulous! Asurazzy, you are regal in these pearls! So many choices of gemstones; Actually holding them next to each other is the only way I can decide which I like.

    Thank you for the neck shots! You and your pearls are lovely to behold. Gorgeous colors. Wear your new strand in health. I look forward to following your, and others', ideas about clasps and jewels.

    Those pearls are so beautiful, I think they would be lovely knotted as is with a simple clasp. (That way you could enjoy wearing them sooner )

    Thanks! I probably have to go to gemshops and match them. I do have however unused drop shape almost 6 karat paraiba tourmaline. Its greenish blueish in color. Might match the pearls and incorporate that somehow to this strand.

    Thanks Cathykeshi!
    Always silent stalking your collection! Hope my hubby will be like your hubby someday hehe. He's starting too! He got me this strand.

    I got 2 examples of mt previous clasps from my old necklaces. First one is my big tahiti with custom made flower clasp. Had it made from 22kt gold but its not very secure, the gold clasp insert is not springy enough and the pearls are really heavy. The second one is Cees old strand I got. I found a 18 kt gold seahorse pendant that I want to be made into a clasp. But the jeweller suggest me to incorporate the seahorse as a feature and just add a gold ball clasp. I put 2 photos of the clasp in here.

    I don't really like simple clasp hehe. I'm patient and I'll wait.

    Oh my, they are splendid and suit you so well.
    Look forward to seeing your clasp - I agree, the simple gold clasp just doesn't do it for that strand!

    Those T's are amazing! And I'm all about the fancy clasp! I thought I'd like ball clasps because they're the same shape as the pearls, but I find the hook mechanism too small and fiddly. I much prefer a fancy clasp.

    The flower clasp is pretty, but it doesn't have a security latch. If you're going to use a box clasp on those heavy pearls, it has to have a security latch also.

    I love the seahorse used on the side.

    Ooooooo look at you ! All fancy pants in those fabulous pearls !! They look marvellous and I love the colours !!Very vibrant and I'm sure you will do something amazing with them. The filagree flower is beautiful and I agree with BWeaves that you should have a security latch. ( I'm in total agreement on the ball clasps... I can't stand them ... just like those little fish hook clasps .. far far too fiddly.

    Looking forward to your ideas for this strand ! Congrats !
