    Show Us Your Pearls In Action!!!

    On Easter I rewore my wedding set with a springy periwinkle floral dress. The pearls are not the greatest, white freshwaters around 6-6.5mm from Effy with yellow gold, but since I wore them at my wedding and they were gifts from my parents and my husband, they have a lot of sentimental value...

    Keep posting, ladies, your lovely pearls and combinations are brightening my days. If we hadn't been reduced to 50% pay already at my work, I would get that carved Kojima pendant in a heartbeat! Love the carving with the drop shape and almost iridescent color. Recent pearls worn in the office...

    Blue baroque akoya

    Update: I didn't feel that the PP strand warmed up on me, so I returned it. It really seems that blue baroque akoya are not abundant right now, as others have said. I went out on a limb and ordered a strand online. This one is a double strand, which I've also been looking for. Today was...

    Blue baroque akoya

    Just wanted to update. I ordered a 9-9.5mm blue baroque akoya necklace, 16", from PP and it arrived today. It's lovely but I'm not sure it's quite as blue as it looked on pictures and as I'd hoped. Not sure about keeping it, though of course no complaints about their customer service- fantastic...

    Thanks for the kind words on my last post. Gemandpearllover, love those metallics! SydK, gorgeous Tahitians! Things are pretty grim right now, so I'm posting some pearls from last week. These aren't particularly luxe, but I've had them for years and they've aged with me well (i.e. don't seem...

    Blue baroque akoya

    The pearl bug has bitten me hard! After buying a lovely, classic white akoya strand from PP (with help from the PG family), and then the "Periwinkle Perfection" strand and earrings set from the PP tahitian sale (ok, that was a vday gift), I'm now looking for a naturally blue strand. Madama...
