    Well absolutely no worries then if it's from Assael ! They have beautiful pearls ! Distance photos can be difficult to judge. I love the Ombre and think you would probably get more use out of it . Unless you do lots of Black Tie events and Charity things ... the big white ones might just sit in the safe... beautiful as they may be. And I like graduation in long pieces, I don't like the look of large pearls across the back of the neck and shoulders plus it keeps the overall weight down.

    Great advice. I have seen the ombre strand -- its from Assael-- and its stunning in person. Its SS and Tahitians, and close up the way the ombre is done is outstanding-- the colors are woven together in a masterful way. I have to admit its a remarkable piece-- and the $$ reflects it, too!

    The SS strand is from the Mikimoto website and I am working with Jeremy to discuss reproducing it with about 50% less diamond/bling and slightly smaller pearls (the picture is of a 13-14mm strand, and its heavy, I like 10-12mm). I have seen the SS in person and tried it on at the Mikimoto boutique in NYC and it is also much more impressive in person--as a holistic STATEMENT piece of jewelry. It pretty much glowed- and since I am pale skin/red hair, it looked good on my "type." Its also above $150K US, so...that's not gonna happen!!!

    Good choices to have, and hopefully Jeremy/Hisano can help me sort our the best choice.

    Have an amazing day,
    Maya

    Also, I forgot to mention....
    I have a princess length strand of Tiffany's South Seas white pearls that are 11.5-12.5mm....
    They are beautiful but I don't think I need a second SSP strand...even though they would be different lengths and the longer with bling....

    So it looks like I am leaning towards the Ombre...

    Yes, the ombre is an excellent choice and much better on you than on the display bust!

    I wear my mismatched (dark and light) Tahitian earrings much more often than my white Hanadama studs. Ombre' pearls go with everything, even other white pearls. I vote for the ombre'.

    From your writing you are just wowed by the ombre'. You're not saying the same thing about the white necklace. Just that it is comparible in price and quality. You will wear something you love much more often than something you think won't go out of style.

    For the record, pearls NEVER go out of style.

    For what it's worth, I am drooling over for that ombre. (Oh, I just see that I'm late to the discussion. In that case, I'm still drooling for that ombre, AND am so happy for you for your choice. I know you're going to love it.)
