And That is one fabulous pearl, IHEART! Way to go!
BWeaves, ever since seeing your Blues pop against the olive (?) linen tunic top, I've been torn. I love perfect matching and great colors as opposed to neutrals, but that photo seriously challenged my beliefs. With regard to thread color though, unless it's a fashion statement itself, maybe it should just be the platform, letting the pearls glow without visual competition.
I'm only thinking out loud, though, and I'm eager to read other opinions.
I love all of these options...Since you're in a warm climate, I'd go for the aqua. Add a little bit of green tone to make the blues pop; mint might be too much green. this may come down to trying each option to see which looks best!Yesterday, Kasumi pendant and earrings from Kojima and my TNT necklace from Ocean's Cove. Dress from Ann G Linen.

Unfortunately, the BBA rope broke while I was wearing it today. The knot that was glued snapped. I never glue my knots. I personally feel the glue actually makes the knots weaker. I back knot instead. But anyway. It gives me a chance to restring. Currently, the pearls are strung on a medium grey thread, but I think they need more colorful knots.

What do you think? Sky matches the blues exactly. So it's the safe option. I think I used sky on my other BBA necklaces. But I'm leaning towards aqua, or maybe mint. Probably aqua. Let's vote!
Thanks for all your votes. I know Sky will work, so I'm tempted to start knotting with Aqua, just to see what it looks like. If I don't like it, I can start over with Sky. My gut feeling is Mint is maybe too green. I used Mint to string my pistachio akoyas.
Today, I overdosed on pearls. Kojima Everything Bagel rope, long mixed tin-cup, and Tahitian keshi tin cup, worn with Mom's SS pearl drop earrings, and my SOC ring. Handwoven pleated shawl in silk and merino wool.

Tomorrow we celebrate Diwali at work. Sari time!!! I'm loading up on white pearls, too.
I think they would all be nice options, too. I would choose sky for myself, but my clothes tend to be more busy, so a colorful thread might make neutral colored pearls not as neutral with my clothes. It looks like you wear a lot of solid colors, so you might like the added color. Maybe if you knotted three or four pearls in the different colors, you would have a personal preference.
