This happens to me a lot as well. When I receive a package I am almost always disappointed at first, but after a few days they kind of grow on me and I start to like them - usually the lighting makes a big difference.... these look fabulous!

Hi everyone!

I'm new here, and just discovered this site yesterday. I was researching Edison/metallic pearls and stumbled onto this thread and was delighted to see that others have ordered from KongsPearl on Etsy and had positive experiences.

I ordered an Edison pearl lot a few weeks ago and had the owner string it into a bracelet for me (I'm not the jewelry-making type), and it arrived today! I had her remove a pearl from the lot and make into a floating pearl pendant as well. I was initially disappointed when I opened the package because 1) the pearls were much larger than expected and 2) the colours were not as vibrant as expected BUT I put it on my wrist and it looks much better on my wrist and the colours show up much better under the shade rather than direct light.

Here's the lot I ordered: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/476785102/13pcs-117-13mm-metallic-color-edison

and here are some photos of the finished product:

And here are my favourite pearls on the bracelet, the ones that are lavendar with a green overtone:

Wow, Karman! They look so colorful in indirect light!

Beautiful bracelet Karman.

Thanks everyone!
I'm already planning my second purchase (not necessarily with KongsPearl)...I'm eyeing those SSP studs on PearlsParadise...I don't have any South Sea Pearls yet!

I just wanted to add that I just ordered some wrinkled ripple white pearls from Kongs pearls to make a rope. They are very nice and have great luster. I will post a picture soon, but I agree that this is a reputable pearl vendor.
