I haven't received mine yet either but I agree that they look great with an enhancer! Very pretty.
What is the scoop on the color of the Biwa pearls? Were there some strands more lavender? Did you over photoshop to get the color? Seems like some of us at least, agree that the photo was very different in tone than what we received, although we are over all very pleased with the pearls.
I purchased a white strand and a "lavender" strand. The white one is lovely but I am disappointed with what was supposed to be "lavender". Mine is a dull gray. I was hoping for a strand that looks like the one in the picture.
... They come from a long-time source of mine that I trust. Their family was in the business back when Lake Biwa was producing. These are from a very old lot and they've guaranteed they are indeed Biwa pearls and have the paperwork to prove it as well....
......... for me the pearls speak a bit about history
