    Question: Are these considered Kasumi-like pearls? I never really been into ripples/Kasumi, but this caught my eye and I was wondering what category this goes into .

    I really hope so. She listed 2 more strands yesterday. But i liked the first two better. I have asked her to send me a picture of the strand before shipping (she is knotting it in red thread for me). Will post the picture here once i receive it.

    Red thread, I would not have thought of that. Can’t wait to see how it looks when finished.

    Yes, imo, these would be considered "ripples" or kasumi-like freshwater pearls. Their nacre isn't completely smooth. I find the ripple pearls fascinating, and the color of these seems very intense.

    I look forward to seeing your strand, Suchi, every one is so unique!

    Abi, I’m fairly certain they’re “Kasumi-like” ripples. I think I recognise the photo from Etsy - I toyed with buying a similar strand, but looking through that vendor’s other listings, I was a doubtful about the colours shown in the photos, which seemed improbably vivid. Of course all vendors show their products in ideal lighting, so you never know for sure until you open the box...

    Nice oil-slick colors. Very intense. I hope they look that intense in person. You'll need to view them under different lighting conditions. I find my ripples look best in the shade in the early morning or sunset.

    Abi, that photo appears to have been color enhanced. Look at the color on the blue tag. I would ask to see a photo without any filters/enhancements. I'm sure there is color on that strand, but I'm also pretty sure it won't be quite that vibrant in real life.

    JP is correct in that either light source or filters have probably effected the colours in the Card photo. The card would be WHITE - that said I'm sure they are colourful and will be pretty but possibly not as Neon as they appear in the photo.
