    Lovely! Sometimes a restring is all it takes to get rid of the offending smell. And I agree, the colors are well suited for you and look fabulous in your neck shot!

    These are really gorgeous! Great colors.

    I recently bought some pearls that smelled horrid - my first time getting a batch that smelled really bad, rather than just lingering funk on the temporary thread. I tried a lot of different things to clean them, but in the end just cleaning them well and letting them dry completely seems to have done the trick.

    I have NO experience with the issue of smelly pearls, but am wondering if putting them in a closed environment with a separate dish of baking soda might help, as it's a great odor absorbent? Like for example, a small dish of baking soda, the pearls on a plate, and a glass dome over ... or a large container with a small dish of baking soda, the pearls next to the dish, and a lid on the container?

    suchi, these are natural colours, as in non-dyed? Either way, the colours are so beautiful!

    Parrot Lady, what size pearls are your strand? And have you worn them yet? I'm curious to know if you see similar colours as in suchi's strand. They look like great colours!

    Cricketbug, my strand is 9-10mm and, no, I haven’t worn it yet. I haven’t even walked it around the house to find the best light. Either Suchi has found perfect light for photographing her strand or mine is not quite as intensely colorful, although all the same colors are there. Mine also seem to be more wrinkled.

    Hi CricketBug, colours are natural. Kongs pearl has some more similar strands listed in etsy.

    Parrotlady i saw these colors only in early morning light, after putting the strand in a white plastic container near the window. In direct sunlight its mostly a dark purple.

    That’s a nice size strand. Wouldn’t it be nice to have perfect light for pearls all the time?

    Thanks, suchi. I’ve been looking at various strands there, but just enjoying “window shopping” at this time.
