Thanks, newberry!

Here is the closeup of the harpoon clasp. It feels very secure and is easy to operate:
Push together to close. It clicks shut.
To open, it's not really pulling apart but rather applying a pinching or squeezing pressure with thumb and index finger where the two end pearls meet. This presses them apart without stressing the stringing material.

Thanks juliebeth! I have to admit I'm feeling less negative about the prospect of turning 60 with this strand to soften the blow. :p

Thank you JerseyPearl, IcyJade and KaySD!!

I wore them today and loved how the gold stood out against a dark shirt. :)

This is the clasp when closed; very inconspicuous.

I'll come back and take some more photos after shoveling the snow we got from yesterday's storm! :)

Having cleared away our 12" of snow (not complaining; many areas got much more) I caught a few photos in the fading afternoon light.

I'm still trying to decide whether to make studs or dangles with the 10-11mm loose pearls. There are advantages and disadvantages either way.

I am really loving this setting with a round pearl: IMG_3006.jpg Of course for a golden, you'd probably want to use yellow gold instead of white gold, although I do like white and gold together! Your pearls appear to have a subtle pink to them, so maybe even rose gold would be a good choice.

How does that clasp, JerseyPearl? Can you show me a sideways view of the earring?

Because my left piercing is about .5mm higher than my right, some findings are too tight for the left ear. I have PP's leverback findings with my Freshadamas but I will have to pass them along to my daughter (who has my Freshadama strand) as they pinch my left ear.

Pearl Dreams, you may have already tried this ... but mentioning just in case ... on those leverbacks that are too tight, a good jeweler has a little tool and can usually adjust the tightness of most leverbacks either way, looser or tighter. It can work miracles, and did for me on a pair of sapphire hoops that were too tight, and much tighter in one ear. I had no idea they could be adjusted ...
