I can't say I'm partial to either! But I think 55 looks very very nice.

Natural white Hanadamas are just the perfect pearl, aren't they? They glow and have a mirror shine. And the orient. And Wow, .7 mm thickness on the nacre. They're just perfect.

BAS - So pleased you like the burgundy Edisons. That 55 looks absolutely fabulous around your neck. As I mentioned to you, it did absolutely nothing for me.

I'm thinking of heading into my jeweler after the holidays for a consult on Fireball 42. I held it up to my tiny baroque pistachio akoyas, and I think it is a match made in heaven. So, probably a pendant with a large bale.

Thanks so much! And BWeaves, I'm in total agreement. They are gorgeous. Here is an "in hand" photo (literally). It is hard to capture how amazing and changing they really are. This one actually reminds me an awful lot of GemGeek's strand. And, they are WHITE WHITE WHITE!

BAS love the reds on your Edisons! My burgundy strand seem to have more pinks and purples in them.

The cherry Tahitians are so difficult to photograph in the right light. I tried today again and this is as best as it gets in natural light! 2D6D1EAE-8EC6-4A30-9F05-0C513AB52A46.jpg01A33FF0-43BD-43DB-A952-0CE7B64817A3.jpg

Taking advantage of the good evening light, I took out the studs.
First pair from PP is a match to the cherry Tahitian strand. Second is a light mauve pair from Kamoka. Lastly a pair of loose pearls from an Etsy seller.

I love the purples! Wish they were easier to capture. A photographic challenge! Looking for more future tips from Andrew :)

cmd2014-Where it says Release 1- click here. Then even more confusing-- make sure you hit the drop down for select strand-- cause I didn't see it ( when you get to the product page on PP) I didn't get the strand I wanted-- I found this process very confusing and not user friendly.

Thanks. The link didn't pop up for me. And then I refreshed the page and it was there. It's not a big deal - I'm only looking not buying.

Do we think any of the VIP burgundy Edison’s went back and might still be for sale? I’d love an actual burgundy strand
