    Default Pearl Diary

    Almighty Google brought me here a couple of months ago and I am much inspired by all the gorgeous ladies and beautiful pearls in everyone’s posts.
    I have got some pearls, thinking would be fun to post some pictures here.
    There are some photos I have taken last year and earlier this year on the trip.
    Maybe I will post those first and start taking new ones from tomorrow.


    This one is a Tahitian keshi rope. I wore it in Maldives last Nov.

    Hi Waps! That's a fine looking rope!

    I'd love to see a closeup of the rectangular metal beads.

    The original rope was much longer, 130cm ish, so I asked people to restring it. Some sterling silver parts were taken from the original rope , and the rest of the Keshis were made into a shorter rope.

    Here are the photos of the rectangle part.

    I missed this post before. Thanks for posting these photos of the rectangles-- they are charming.

    Who wouldn't love a stroll through a night/craft market? Sounds like lots of fun!

    Unfortunately , craft markets is a sunset industry now, many people going online shopping.

    Some sterling silver settings from no-name but really creative people.

    This one is from Thailand as well.
    the original one was with a garnet. Same thing , took the garnet out , put Tahitian in.
    Paired with a bracelet , same colour Tahitian, 13.4mm, the pendant is 14.5mm.
    Can’t tell what animal it is , look like an angry lion.

    I love your pic of the pearls in front of the water. Your neckshot is lovely, but there's something about the water shot that really enhances those pearls.

    I agree, it looks like a photo from a travel magazine.

    But, shouldn't "pearl dairy" have milk-white pearls? (j/k, I love a good typo).
