Thank you Cathy. I sometimes wish I would have gotten more of these strands. I bet worn as a double it is spectacular.
Newberry - thank you for sharing the story - I love the story behind the pearl more than just the specs! That is one SPECTACULAR drop - most of the metallics I've seen listed are all around or below 10mm. More interestingly, the baroque akoyas have been pinked, and usually it shows when placed next to metallic whites. But your baroque akoyas look metallic white and looks like they were born from the same lot with the drop. That is some serious special matching! Will you be bringing this set to the Ruckus? I hope so!
BabyNurse - lol not surprised you snagged that strand - I inquired about it too but was too late.
I feel like every time I see something in both Newberry and your collection I have to ping PP and ask oh oh oh do you guys still have more of those abc special sale from n years ago as seen on xyz. And sadly of course the answer is mostly no.
Wow, Newberry, that necklace with the drop is stunning. I definitely wanted all the information about it, so thank you for giving it to us. That pendant is gorgeous, and I love the blossom setting. But it really looks "finished" with the wire wrapped necklace.
So, I'm curious. How do wire wrapped pearl necklaces "feel" compared to knotted pearl necklaces?
I like the silky, drapey feel of a strand of pearls, but I've never seen a wire wrapped strand in person, so I don't know how it feels.
