    Default Tahitian Pearl Ring

    To finish up my mad pearl buying spree from the other day, it looks like I've found my ring pearl. I realized that what I wanted the most was a giant round pearl, and of course the problem with that was my budget (especially later in the buying spree, lol).

    It's the one on the right, 14.6 mm:

    The setting will be the yellow gold band from PP. I have two thin diamond bands to wear on either side to dress it up a little:

    So that's 2 strands, a pair of earrings, and a ring on the way. I've covered my gifts for my birthday, Christmas, anniversary, and Valentine's Day/Mother's Day combined. The best part is that DH thanked me for rescuing him from having to figure out what to get me. So yeah, starting to wonder why I'm not a member of MENSA (just kiddin').

    Thanks. It's (the Tahitian above) from The Pearl Society. Hopefully, I won't knock it into something. My hands are too big! Here's my South Sea ring. The pearl is 13.2-13.7, I believe. Yet, I don't think it looks very large on me so I thought I'd go up some for the next one. Please excuse the salami skin look. I was trying to photoshop my manhands, lol:

    No, but thanks for the great LOL I got from your retort (hehehe).
    I think I have rather large hands myself, but I like 'em alright. Wish I had your good fingernails, however...

    I think we're hand-sisters as a matter of fact, except you have better knuckles and fingernails and rings!

    No one has a problem with their hands until the camera comes out!

    You know, I have noticed that. Recently I took some selfie shots to show my friend my new hairdo. I swear, the camera was so much harsher than the mirror. Now when I am standing there looking in the mirror, I know what I look like, it's not like a delusion in my mind. The photos were so scary I didn't send them. Cameras are cruel and inaccurate and should be abolished!

    LOL. Cameras are innocent Lie Detectors for the little lies we tell ourselves. My worst enemy is the three-way dressing room mirror. Being able to see myself through a second mirror puts me at a remove that spells out exactly what I look like to anyone else! And let's not discuss bathing attire...

    Sea, you have to master the mirror selfie...you take a photo of yourself taking a photo! When I look in the mirror, I still see a 38 year old (if not wearing my reading glasses!)

    You gals crack me up Thank you for the laughs

    I think we should go back to bathing in dresses.

    Anyway, Sea Urchin, how do you find the large SSP sits on your finger? Does it spin much?
