    Katbran and Sydk, your messages actually made me reconsider returning the pearls - considering their cost it really wasn’t worth shipping them back to China. I have picked the pearls with the best luster and have made two bracelets- the color really doesn’t work with my skin tone, but with a bracelet that’s not that big of a deal.

    I also just received the abalone pearl set. I am very happy with the look of the bezel but unsure about the positioning of the bale, as it falls a bit too horizontal when worn - I’ll try to see how it goes for a couple of days before going back to the jeweler with it. Thanks for letting me share

    Azra- the bracelet is a good idea and you're right about the colour..not a big deal when it's not by your face. And they do seem to have nice lustre.
    The setting looks good... I'd like to see a photo of it hanging to see what concerns you.

    Katbran - the bracelets are quite lustrous, I kind of like them despite the off color. For what concerns the pendant I am posting two pictures- the first of it hanging- and the second of how I would like it to hang. I am not sure it would be feasible, but I thought that maybe by moving the bale a bit this could be achieved? Otherwise I’m quite happy with the setting.

    You would think that it would be intuitive that the pearl should be vertical.

    I like the way you want it to hang. Take it back to the jeweler to redo it.

    Azra,

    Your new pieces are lovely! Yes, I agree, moving the bail will make the abalone hang correctly. Great luster on the fw pearls; perhaps adding a bracelet with dark pearls or gemstones will play up the colors and overtones.

    Pearlbop- thank you for your kind words
    Bw, pattye - I have taken the pendant back to the jeweler to have the bail moved - hope it will hang right this time. While waiting I have stumbled upon a nice pair of blue baroque akoya studs - and I could not resist. Initially I was a bit skeptical about the drop shape, but they are really growing on me.

    Oh, I missed your post about the not-purple freshies - the bracelets are so pretty and lustrous. The bba drops are gorgeous! What a lovely collection you have.
    Hopefully your pendant will hang properly once the bail is moved.

    Beautiful studs, I like that shape. Makes them more interesting. That blue strand is amazing as well.
