I wore my kamoka pendant and PP studs today, but I still haven't gotten the hang of taking a jewelry selfie, will try again next time. :p

I'm loving all the gorgeous eye candy, Ladies.

Today, I am wearing my double strand of blue baroque akoyas from Pearl Paradise. Baby Nurse bought the first 3 strands from this super blue lot, and I got the last 2. I bought the blue top to go with this necklace because the color and neckline seemed perfect for the strand.

LitGeek -- thanks! These two pearls are my first "freshadama" pearls and they knock my socks off. Super round and super lustrous.

Kay -- sigh -- I just adore the blue baroques... they are gorgeous on you!

Today = single metallic multicolored strand paired with earrings DH bought in HK for me with yellow, white and rose gold and PP souffle ring:

Ckrickett, I think it's great that you wear pearls even for mundane tasks like cleaning/packing. I do the same!

BAS, I love your metallic pastels.

Kay, I recognize those akoya! Navy really complements the blue; they look lovely on you :)

This is a 50" rope of silver/blue Tahitians purchased from PP a year ago. They're chameleons. Sometimes they're powder blue, sometimes silver.

Gorgeous blue akoyas, single metallic strand with fun earrings and ring, and silver-blue Tahitian rope, and many more before those. Wow! I've been out of town all month and these posts make me so homesick for my lovely pearls. :)

BAS hubby chooses well; those butterflies are lovely :) Baby Nurse, that long rope of silvery Tahitians is adorable ... the textures, the colors ... I need lessons on buying ropes of ringed, circled Tahitians LOL. I too am tremendously enjoying the increase in photos shared here ... wonderful, and thanks to all!

Thought I'd take a moment to show pearls truly in action...working hard to get three corsets finished before I head off to Tucson. Wearing two Tahitian rings I got a few years ago from the Robert Wan shop in Paris, when they still carried lower-end items accessible to mere mortals.

Now back to the sweatshop!

Casual at home and waiting for the Super Bowl to begin. I thought I would kick up my outfit a bit with my round blue Rikitea Tahitians from PP and my favorite WSS keshi drop earrings by little h.

Just add some green and you will be properly dressed, Red :)

LOL! I'll put on my beige Super Bowl XLIX cap that my DH brought back for me from a business trip to Phoenix last week.

GemGeek -- this one's for you!

DH bought the butterfly earrings with this triple in HK years ago. He bought each strand of multicolors separately (with a few metallics in each strand) and then the WG/YG diamond butterfly clasp. The pearls only had knots between the last three pearls at the end of each strand. After years of wear, the silk stretched badly and Hisano restrung it knotting between each pearl and removing a few pearls to keep the same drape. This remains one of my favorite sets, and probably why I favor triples:

How did I miss all of this? Wow, ladies, I love your pearls!

ckrickett - Your lavender pearls with the red beads are so fun! Good job!

BAS - I really like both your Bauhaus and butterfly earrings! Both look great on you with your curly locks!!

KaySD - I can understand why you had to have that shirt to go with your blue Akoyas - fantastic!

baby nurse - That's a beautiful long rope that looks great twisted. The pearls play with each other!

Red - Oh my, your Rikitea! It's gorgeous and looks great on you. I go to PP occassionally to look at those amazing pearls!

Today I'm wearing my 12-15mm PP Tahitians, dark blue/green body color with peacock overtones. In terms of blemishing they have more than other pearls I have but they make up for it in size & color!

The two cuties removed from the strand to make matching earrings, they have such character!:
