ok, this is random, but from overstock.com i bought 2 VERY inexpensive strands of baroque akoya pearls. they're not so great, but added together as a bracelet, i find them quite charming!
These are so lovely, They shine and I hope they make your heart sparkle.
I bought the same necklace. Despite wiping it down and soaking it in shampoo, it still smells very fishy. Do you have the same problem?
