My first time posting my pearls here.

My Mikimoto earrings. These are the yellow gold version. I liked them so much I got them in the white gold version, too.

My 36 inch long, 8 mm natural white Hanadama strand from PP.

My 3 strand wedding choker which I designed myself and had a jeweler make for me. I found the cameo and he made a yellow gold frame for it with loops to attach to the pearls. He also made the clasp with larger pearls and diamonds in white gold. I also wear it backwards with the clasp in front for a different look. I was a total Princess Diana fan back in 1980, which is around when I had this choker made.

I wish my neck looked younger. It was a bit disconcerting when I downloaded the photos and saw my neck.

Hi BWeaves! Your pearls are so lovely :) That wedding choker is incredibly creative! The natural hanadama rope is luscious. I think your neck looks perfectly fine, but the first downloaded selfie can be a shock ... I never got over my first download, and it never made it here, although the pearls did LOL.

Reborn pearls and 14K yellow gold beads. The orient on these pearls is amazing. I'm normally not a baroque person, but these are solid nacre and it really shows. The long twisted beads are also a nice twist on spaced out necklace. I hesitate to call this a tin cup as there is no chain between the pearls.

These are my summer pearls. They are so light to wear.

Ckrickett, beautiful pearls, and I like the top too!

BWeaves, as I said on the other thread, all your pieces are lovely! I would love to have a long strand of natural white Hanadamas like that, and your choker is very special.

Over the weekend, I wore my freeform baroque white South Sea strand from Pearl Paradise. I love the clasp on this necklace. I am having PP make me an Edison drop pendant to suspend from the circle clasp.

KaySD, how nice to see you and your pearls ... I especially LOVE that white SS strand from PP; did you have them re-arrange the clasp to put the largest pearls in front with the clasp? A drop pendant will be stunning on that!!!

Hi Cathy! Yes, the pearls were re-strung with the largest ones near the clasp -- I get a lot more wear out of it now. I'll bring it to the Ruckus.

Kay, your blue baroques and SS pearls are to die for. I'm intensely lusting after them. I always wear my clasps in front, especially if they have diamonds in them. I see no point in wearing the clasps in the back (unless my hair is up). For long strands I wear the clasp on the side, in the brooch position.

Jersey Girl and BAS, your pendants are beautiful.
