JEG, you need more ears. Those are gorgeous.

Gemandpearlover: Who needs the sun when you have those pearls. They brighten up a grey day.

I'm still on a classic white pearl kick. Still wearing Mom's akoya ring, because it's the only ring that fits me at the moment. I feel like every couple of years I keep getting my rings sized up. I don't think my fingers got bigger, but I can't get the rings over my knuckles.

Anyway, Nana's pearls.

Hum, cut my own hair. Not too bad. Greg trimmed up the bits I missed.

I need to keep up better with this great thread. So many lovelies worn so beautifully by you all. Thank you for sharing the your creativity and the beauties of Nature that pearls are.

Jeg, you are on a creative tear with those wonderful earrings. Soon you will need to start an Etsy store - I’ll buy the long SS danglies :)
Gemandpearl, the colours of those Tahitians are glorious.
Bweaves, I like all the white pearls for summer - I don’t own many white pearls (my pearl funds always seem to vanish on Tahitians), but they look marvellous en masse all layered up. The clasp on nana’s pearls is one of my favourites.

I am new here and mostly just reading but I wanted to share my Pearls in action from my wedding day last October.
I have had these pearls since about 8-9 years ago when they were inherited/gifted
They are a three strand choker and bracelet on a wire with what appears to be three tiny diamonds in the middle of both
(my husband says diamond chippy/chips)

New pondslime ripples, made into a matinee-length necklace with the addition of a few spare pearls from a dismantled Catherine Cardinelli strand.

Here’s the CC strand before I broke it apart. The CC strand was one of my first pearl purchases, but I never wore it much - it was a bit too dainty for my big features, and the little gold rods always twisted in the wrong direction and made it look crooked. I’m thinking of getting some big, erratically shaped keshi to string with the rods, so the asymmetry looks more intentional.

Today I’m in vintage cashmere which probably dates from the late 50s or early 60s. I don’t think it can ever have been worn or washed, because the neckline and cuffs are unstretched, and the colour is INSANELY bright (cashmere obviously deserves its reputation for taking dye really well). It also has cool buttons. With all that going on, I decided to keep my accessories simple - GSS 11mm button studs.

I’ve been reading this strand again from the start, and have noticed two things:
1) Pearls have changed a lot even in the few years this thread has been running - In the earlier posts, there are “exotics” that are now quite common, souffles which are now rare, and those Gellner-style hematite and pearl roles that are so pretty and I had completely forgotten about, amongst other changes. Also lots of great purchases from PP monthly specials.
2) The people on this forum have some AMAZING pearls! Thank you to everyone who has shared pics, because it has been a treat for me see them all while binge-reading over the last few days.

Cashmere holds up very well throughout the years. I have some of my Mom's sweaters from the early 1960's that are still going strong. It's me who grew out of them.

I've learned that if a new pearl style comes in, I can't wait and dither about it. I've seen too many pearl styles disappear when the farmers move on to culturing a different style and shape of pearl.

Audrie- You look so beautiful and your pearls are wonderful. Like looking at a picture in a magazine.

Sydk- Your pondslime ripples look great on you. Bronze IMHO is such a special color in pearls.


BWeaves- I love your pendants. The Little H pendant is amazing with the emeralds. Her creations are so unique and beautiful. You look great wearing it.

WOW, ladies!!! You all look so wonderful in your pearls & new creations. Welcome, Thysa. You're going to love it here.

We've had rain all week but it looks like the sun is coming out. Today I'm wearing my 2 Kojima waterfall necklaces along with my WSS sterling octopus with little green diamond eyes, Autore WSS drop earrings & ring.
