    Default Blue Necklace Complete

    Some may remember these intense, iridescent deep blue Vietnamese pearls. Hisano selected them, and they were on the Pearl Paradise blog. I was lucky enough to get a few, and they've been in John's patient safe keeping at PP while I considered what to do with them. I thought you all might like to see the completed necklace. This is a petite project, set in rose gold, tiny diamonds, 2 small and one bigger incredible blue blue pearls. The center diamond (about 1/3ct) is the diamond from my original engagement ring from Walter so many years ago. These pearls are and were very difficult to photograph; in real life, the bottom pearl is pretty accurate, and the 2 smaller pearls are closer in color to the big pearl. The bust shot is closest to what I see in real life. All credits and THANKS go to Hisano's judgement and eye for pearl hunting, John's design brilliance and PATIENCE, and to Jo at PP for the glamour photos. Ooh, and a big thank you to my Ruckus buddies for the enablement, especially to our Pearl Queen Newberry

    Thank you Charlotta, 86Corvettegirl and Bcm21mk! It is light and airy, delicate yet noticeable. It just arrived today, so I haven't worn it yet. John has been the soul of patience, lol ... I was so afraid to decide what to do with these That and the fact that during Ruckus, there are so many other SHINY ... BLINGY ... BEAUTIFUL distractions, it's hard to resist "something new before it escapes!!!" over something in the wings. I'm thrilled with this one
