    It doesn't say what the acorns are made out of. The royal family uses this one a lot, it seems to be one of their favorites. Well they use them all a lot. Their collection is awsome.

    Purple pearls 2; these are more lavender, and they are strung with sterling beads and a centerpiece of a jaguar (from Rio Grande):

    I decided to restring these with an orbit clasp:

    Restringing with an orbit clasp is always a great idea. I agree, lovely colors. We need a neck shot.

    Beautiful Linda, I especially love the tahitian keshi and the bigger tahitian strand. Those pearls are glowing.

    No pearls. That's cut steel. It was a rare "gem" back in the Napoleonic era. It sparkles like diamonds though, when light reflects off the facets of the steel.
