    Beautiful pearls Bweaves and Jeg. Bweaves, I really like the kasumiearrings. How different are they compared to ripples? I have never seen real kasumis in real life. Ripples sometimes disapoints me, and mine never looks good in sunshine.
    Jeg, the medleystrand is gorgeous.

    JEG: Love your clothes and your pearls.

    Charlotta: I cannot tell the difference between Kasumi pearls and good Chinese ripples. I have seen a lot of lower grade Chinese ripples that I've sent back or thought were very disappointing. Usually a necklace might have one great pearl and the rest were disappointing. Most of the real Kasumi pearls I've seen have been from Kojima or Pacific Pearl and they are very good quality and the whole necklace was full of good pearls. I've also bought Chinese ripples from Kojima and Pacific Pearl and they are also top quality and rival the Kasumi pearls. Since both are trusted vendors I've bought from before, I know that price marked on their website is a good indication of the pearl quality. You get what you pay for. I would be much more skeptical of eBay sellers who claimed Kasumi pearls, or had a great photo but had 10 necklaces available, so you're not going to get the one in the photo. Each necklace is unique. Like Tahitians, I looked at or ordered and returned quite a few before I found ones I liked.

    Thank you Bweaves. I never have any trouble with tahitians anymore (because I get better ones probably), but freshwater pearls and I don't always gets along. Often they have a yellow or peach shade/tint to them that don't look good on me, and though I have a ripple strand that I like I kind of like tahitians better. If kasumis and ripples really are alike, even in colortones then it might be better to get good ripple once.

    BW, looks like you snuck some beautiful pearls in! LOL Yes, it's very hot right now with pop up rain showers. Weather is not conducive to pearl stacks at the moment!

    Jeg, love your pearls! The Pearl Medley rope is like BW's Everything Bagel rope.....fantastic to layer with other strands & necklaces!! I need something like that. Another item for the wish list.

    The luster on those metallic strands are strikingly beautiful!! Such wonderful looks!!

    Thank you so much Katbran, Charlotta, JerseyPearl, BWeaves and 86C!

    BWeaves and 86C, I don’t think I’d be able to wear any kind of jewelry in your climate. I would be completely dripping.

    Always happy to help you add to your wish list 86C!

    Yes, Jeg, it's hot & humid here. It's tough to wear jewelry but air conditioning is our friend. LOL Today was dreadfully humid so I wore my carved Tahitian 15mm pendant & earrings...something light. Lots of greens in these even though you can't really tell from the pics.

    Thank you, Jeg & Charlotta. It was dreadfully humid yesterday & today, it's just as bad. It's a tin cup kind of day.

    BTW, Jeg, what size are the Tahitian Keshi in your long station necklace? I have some keshi but they are really small & I'm thinking of making a longer scattered necklace to hang pendants on. A necklace like yours would be a lot cooler to wear in this heat. Did you get the Keshi from Druzy Designs?

    No, Midge said, I take it back. I wouldnt get a mink coat the first thing. Know what Id do? Id get a string of pearls. Real pearls. Yes, Annabel said, slowly. I think thats a kind of a good idea. And it would make sense, too. Because you can wear pearls with anything.
