    My rainbow strand!

    That's so fun to see the beginning and continuing progress of the pearl hunt in Hong Kong! It's looks like it was a treasure hunt. :D

    My tahitian pearls

    More Tahitian beauty! Love the different bands on the enhancer from Pearl Society. They look almost rainbow-ish in the one photo. So pretty and versatile!

    Hah! I completely agree, Charlotta! I could cheerfully "branch out" to a beautiful dark blue strand similar to yours! :rolleyes: Well, I tried, but to no avail, this year. Perhaps next year?!

    Share your Pearl Paradise Private Launch Purchases!

    There were/are some gorgeous pieces in this offering! I tend to prefer to deliberate and think about what I would love and wear, rather than to feel pressured by a time-limit (and a sense of "competition" that others might beat me to it) to be impulsive and buy-right-now!!! LOL! That said, I...

    LOL! I was thinking the exact same thing, Andrew! I agree! There could definitely be cross-pollination in this thread—what could possibly be more wonderful than diamonds and pearls?! Not necessarily in that order. Haha.

    Katbran, I love using different coloured threads to subtly compliment the various pearls. The next time I refresh the Robert Wan strand I may use teal, although the navy is such a excellent colour overall, for the strand. Waps, even though I have more than enough blue pearls, my eye is always...

    Lovely Tahitian colours, 86C! Charlotta, that's quite a process to making a tassle with that cap! Kudos for an excellent job and description!

    Akoya redos

    So much beauty! I really like the tassel, it turned out so well! And the wave strands are especially gorgeous, too. It's wonderful to see the pearls re-purposed.

    Love this two-tone-looking pendant! Is it both silver and gold? Or is it my monitor? Either way, it's very pretty on you!

    Thank you ParrotLady and Alyend! We are so very fortunate to have wonderful vendors that find and provide so much beauty, right?! Charlotta, yes!, you also have had a spectacular year in pearl acquisitions! I know I sound too repetitive, yet I will say it again—your pearls (and photos!) are...

    Pearl Confessions...

    Lilpearl, I rarely wear the purple-peach combo strand as they somehow look a bit odd on my skin tone. The Robert Wan strand, blues and the GSS strands all get a lot of wear. And with layering, keshi and pendants get worn a lot with any of the blue strands. I'm so glad to see so many great...

    Guo Pei's pearl bridal gown

    Holy-moley! The shoes! THAT'S what I would want help (via human pontoons) with! Incredibly creative, like grand movie/theatre costumes. What an imagination.

    Thank you, Charlotta. I think it was mainly seeing all your beautiful Cees pearls that tipped me over the edge to contact him. :rolleyes: I am pretty much putting myself on a hiatus from buying pearls. Heh. Well, that's the plan... Who knows what might happen though, if something too beautiful...
