Thank you so much for your replies. i do love what I saw in the first photo. I am dreaming of a really ”colourful” strand and I thought ”Fiji pearls” (I am obviously referring to the colours) was something I could only dream about. In fact I thought the colours were that amazing that I was afraid they were dyed. Now I wonder if it is even possible to find what I want in terms of colour? My initial thought was trying to buy individual pearls (and let it take a few years) but also I cannot pay 20+ kUSD for a strand, not even if will ”collect” the pearls over time, Also I really like those ”bubble strands” with pearls in different sizes. In any case I learnt, thanks to you, that I will have to look for pearls with the body colour I like and also it is obvious photos cannot always be trusted which obviously makes this a bit difficult.Also, the last photo-- if that is a white background-- is underexposed, which would make the colors appear more saturated than they are in reality. There are no shadows on the pearls, so it was taken in the shade, which is why you see some overtones. IMO that is the probably the best that strand is going to look, in person. It's nice, but do you love it?
If I have to talk myself into loving a strand of pearls, it isn't the right strand for me.
