I'm trying to mix up my pearl combinations. Today I tried something I haven't tried together before.

My diamond huggies with my baroque blue drops from Kojima.

I didn't think the blue pearls went with the necklace which has a white pearl, but the blues matched the bottom of my shirt, and the necklace matched the painted lady's clothing.

There are too many colors in nature to always be matchy-matchy. I think your look works really well.
I really like when ladies add versatility to the hoops they own, pearls and gem drops are always appreciated lol!

I am so far behind on this thread. SO many great looks, and that baby chick is just too cute!

Today's pearls include a 23" strand of 10-13mm FW drop pearls in shades that range from deep purple to petal pink, purchased from Sarah of Kojima at the 2016 Ruckus, 10-11 mm smooth drop lavender FW pearls on WG pave hoop settings from Pearl Paradise (purchased 2 years -- I got lucky that the earring pearl color is in the strand), and a SOC pave ring from Sarah at the 2016 Ruckus.

"Tundra" nail polish by CND Vinylux is a pinkish lavender color that goes great with purple & pink shades of FW pearls, as well as SOC pearls.

Yesterday, I decided to try a new look with my "Loot 2" multi-color Tahitian strands from Pearl Paradise at the 2014 Ruckus. I linked the 2 strands together with the Orbit clasps, then used the other clasp end to create a Y lariat (inspired by the Gellner Mermaid necklace).

Wow Kay ! That's a feast for the eyes ! Those Freshwaters a lovely colours ! I do love the purple and pink pearls and the nice thing about. Multi colours is that it's so much easier to match up some earrings ! How lucky you had a great pair ready to go !

And matching nail polish ! Well done ..sets off that gorgeous ring beautifully !!

And the styling of the Tahitians ..very cool !

BWeaves- those earring as stunning ! And please remind me - your pendant - you had that made for you ?

The two strand Tahitian lariat is genius KaySD, so simple yet so effective. I so love a lariat. (We need a heart eyes emoji!)Thanks for mentioning which nail polish this is, I was definitely going to ask! It looks incredible with your fw strand, which are such a great size/length combo.

BWeaves, so many things to appreciate about this look, but mostly it is making me want to try pearl drops hanging from larger hoops...

Kay, I love both looks and the matching nail polish!

Orbit clasps are so versatile, it's amazing. Even the look at the bottom is interesting enough to be a dangle in its own right.

JerseyPearl, THANK YOU! Thank you for redrilling a couple of my Ruckus blue akoya pearls with challenging holes. I decided to even put the ugly pearl back in the strand. I put both by the last clasp, because the holes were larger and that's where I need a little extra width to work the ends of the thread back through.

The strand was originally 22" with a ball clasp.

The strand after restringing the first time with an orbit clasp, but missing the two challenging pearls.

I actually liked that length, but I wanted to use all the pearls, since I bought them. After redrilling and restringing again. The orbit clasp added one pearl length to the necklace.

Since I couldn't simultaneously wear them and restring them, I decided it was a amethyst kind of day.

Very lovely amethyst setting! Is that a diamond or a seed pearl on the lower left side? My iPad doesn't show it clearly...

Bweaves I love your chain. This is the one that can connect to various pendants? Did I remember wrongly?

I love that amethyst! (My birthstone, so I am partial.) The setting is so unique and beautiful. You have a great jeweler.

Today I wore the same 3 Kamoka Tahitians on a leather cord that I posted a couple days ago. While I was picking figs, the knot became loose on the leather cord and all 3 pearls fell into my gathered figs (fortunately I was home when it happened!). They looked so lovely together sitting on the kitchen counter, I couldn't resist taking a photo of the 'miniature figs' with the real figs!

Thank you. That's a diamond with the amethyst. Yes, that's one of my chains with the swappable pendants. They connect at the edges of the pendant with a really cool clasp that is almost invisible.

LM, That's a work of art. I thought it was a famous still life for a minute. Love it.
And I love the pearls with the chambray shirt, too. I love pearls and denim or anything dyed with indigo. They just go.

lmgarden...your figs!!! Now I understand your name. BTW, our figs aren't ripe just yet...but maybe by the weekend. Try them grilled with gorgonzola cheese...delish! And those Kamokas...TDF!

BWeaves, happy to help out a pearl sister in need! I am so glad the drilling went smoothly. And wow, a strand of those beautiful pearls...my new want/need/want.
