I always thought my 5 mm were a bit small. I've always wanted an 8 mm opera length rope, and now that I've got one, I find it just a bit heavy. I think 6 to 7 mm is the perfect size. But for layering up, 5 to 6 mm are great.

My earlobes are very sensitive to weight but my neck isn't at all. I just really like the look of smaller sized pearls in a rope, anywhere from 5-7mm. I have one that is either 7.5 or 8mm and the pearls themselves are lovely but the rope just doesn't have the same appeal.

thanks everyone:) yeah i learned my lesson...from now on i'm gonna tell my bench guy to try to keep the patina, i think it looks better on the antique pieces that way!

Thanks, kelluvpearls.

Those are gorgeous deep lavenders, Perlas!

Funky pearl, I love the set you are wearing. I've never considered pearl pins-- these are so pretty!

My goodness, BN, those look enormous, I don't remember seeing them before, can you please fill me in on details? they are gorgeous.

Perlas, your rope is beautiful! I love that shade of lavender, I have never seen such a long necklace in a darker shade of lavender.

funky pearl, you look straight from a 1950s movie, with your delicately beautiful akoyas.
