    Thank you Charlotta and jeg for the complements on my harvest strand. It is one of the first pearl necklaces I bought and one I wear often. I bought this Tahitian strand with a project in mind that I haven't made happen... I finally decided to just wear it as is for now. It has lovely color.

    Yes. :) **** Thank you everyone for the compliments on the ombre! I also ordered two strands of the gray Akoya's. I'm disappointed because I asked for them to be strung together and I got two necklaces. Anyhow, they have good luster and have pretty smooth surfaces. Here they are...

    I ordered one of the South Sea ombre ropes. These are first South Sea pearls I've seen in person: I don't have any neck shots but I did snap this:

    My bronze Edison strand is heading back to PP. There were to many pearls with issues for me to be happy given the price. I bought a necklace during Black Friday sales that came about the time of the Edison strand. I love the luster and color of these Tahitians. I had planned to send it...

    Hi Purranha, I am currently short for time (on lunch) to modify a picture. I do have a close-up picture that may help: The flawed nacre is a bit like the spot of colorful paint the previous homeowner got on the guest room ceiling. It is the first thing my eye goes to when I walk into the...

    I ordered one of the Edison bronze strands. The colors are very interesting and vibrant. The luster is great! However, it has a pearl in the front with a nacre issue that really bothers me. It is visible in the pictures (the blemish faces a knot); I don't know if it is visible when worn...

    Bonsava, lovely pearls! BW, I really like the new necklace combination. The new ring is great! I've branched out from my Tahitian obsession. I made my first purchase from Kojima and bought a rope of white freshwater keshi pearls: Worn on the wrist: In a moment of better light for a...

    October Tahitians

    I have another strand that I'm "on the fence" about keeping. It is dark pearls described as cool tones of blue, violet, green and eggplant:
