Pearl Diary

Thanks ladies !

Traveling to New Caledonia again. Today I am doing a fly over the heart shaped mangrove, with a big round GSS strand and WSS ring.
Have posted the strand before.
The round WSS on the ring has unique light lilac overtone .

What an amazing collection, Waps! I will just react to your latest post now...the keshi ring is so so dreamy... my wishlist is getting longer by the minute I spend on this site....
 
Waps, that latest keshi ring is delightful ... the beautiful colors resemble the lagoon!
 
Wow, I love the photos of your fly over! And of course, all the gorgeous pearls that are along for the ride.:p
 
Thanks ladies.
I felt a bit sad actually.
The Koniambo Nickel Mine operated by Glencore just next to the stunning second largest coral reef and the biggest lagoon in the world , had its second metal leak in 5 years . Last was 2014, this was June 2019. Each had 500ton nickel leaked to the sea. Just within one month, the mine reopen operation.
But who cares about the colony? Otherwise it wouldn’t be colonised in the first place.
I probably shouldn’t talk about anything other than pretty pearls and great weather on the forum. But there is always a pain underneath every beautiful thing, incl pearls.

Waps, these lagoon photos are so beautiful, and heartbreaking to hear of such damage to a place so lovely. I share your distress; such concern is vital to us all.

I adore both of your duo SS necklaces. I'm wondering what the chain is made of? Is there a clasp in the back?

You have stunning rings as well Just a lovely Tahitian today.

The chains are different in the back , the baroque one has no clasp , only a silicon filled adjustable stopper , the keshi one has a clasp and adjustable extension. Both AU750(18K gold, white )

Love everything ! And is that chain knotted in the front or is it a slide ? I love that idea ! And the flower kasha are so sweet. Are they fixed together to maintain the shape and then as 3 hooked to the chain ? Or hooked into the chain individually ? I'm from a family of Engineers and always interested in the physical construction.:rolleyes:

The duo keshi chain has a knot in the front .
As to the keshi flower necklace , I just had a close look at it, each flower has a large hoop that pierced through the keshi to combine the petals together , and then the chain is hooked on the two sides of each hoop.

My silly iPhone doesn’t show clear details.
Let me try this way to describe.
Geez, now they look like potatoes... clearly I won’t be qualified as any kind of engineer.
