    Default Did I do good?

    Long time, no post. I've been cursed with a car that lives only to break down and haven't had funds for pearls in years...but I caved on these.

    I think I did good! I nabbed the second pair of Edisons in this listing - I was amazed they hadn't sold already, whenever people offer options in a listing I always miss out on the best ones. Too slow. These were 38 plus tax and I think they look really nice, although I haven't seen Edisons in person in a REALLY long time and can't be positive.

    They're 14 mm. I've also never worn a pearl that large but if I just stick one in I can be the Girl With The Pearl Earring. They sound enormous haha.

    They certainly have nice luster, and I'm not sure how you could go wrong paying just $38+ tax on those.

    Do post some photos of your own when they arrive!

    You cannot go wrong at that price , even if they are flawed at the back they face up nicely. Lovely sharp lustre.

    The luster is amazing & for $38, that's a great deal.

    Heaven's sake! Miss a day and look what skates by, sigh.
    Hey, Renna, welcome back!
    Those are swoon-worthy, I hope we get to see them irl pics because I'm having trouble visualizing the size. You did good, oh yes.

    Thank you everyone! Good to see you again too Lisa

    I got them! They are definitely flawed, with lumps and one black spot, but in the ears they do face up pretty clean and the flaws are not visible from a normal social distance. They’re quite pretty and yes, they’re big. My sister and I were at dinner and I asked her if she liked the “biggest pearls in the world,” at which point she said “wait, they’re real?!”. Hahaha. And then we had a lovely discussion about pearls and saltwater vs freshwater and orient and nacre layers and she told me to go be a “pearlier.” I am down for that.

    They have nice luster; no one will notice the tiny dark spot. I think you did fine!

    Renna, you look terrific in your lustrous earrings! I feel a little imperfection is beautiful (wabi-sabi). If the black spot really annoys you, find some well matching nail polish, and just put the tiniest bit right on the black spot! Our dear Caitlin often did this and I feel she would approve of me mentioning this to you.

    Renna, that's the Girl with the Pearl, right there, WOW.

    Thank you for saying that Pattye! I think of Caitlin and her nail polish talents frequently.

    Oooh, those are really pretty! It's doubtful any polite person would be close enough to see that tiny black spot.
