Wonderful photos, Hawaii is a lovely place, unfortunately I couldn't find the Tahiti pearl market whilst visiting last year.
Stunning - and so very interesting to get your perspective on the pastel colored pearls in the context of the darker hues. Thank you so much for sharing the photos!
I am a huge fan of the pastel colors and notice that we really don't see as many in the popular depictions of Tahitian jewelry. On color, I am curious how much blue you really see in the pearls which are photographed against the white envelope? Since the blue tinge shows in the white balance of the photograph, I assume that it's also influencing how the pearls read. Or is my assuming making an a _ _ out of me, as my grandma would say? Quite possible, of course. ;-)
I picked some more multicolor pastel pearls to make a necklace with ribbon. The split rings at the end allow me to remove the ribbon and connect to gold chain to make a "different" necklace. At certain angles, some pearls have lavender iridescence. These are 9-10+mm.
Note: None of these pictures have been photoshopped. That is why the background is slightly blue instead of the white envelope background.
I love all pearls that you are showing but this one is so nice!!!! I'd like a bracelet like that- it would be so pretty!
