TriciaS, even if you think that your new akoyas don't quite suit your skintone there are always ways to get around that. I think that anyone can wear any color, you just have to add some other colors. Like I look horrendous in peachy colors, but if I make them rainbow style with lots of other colors then it's fine. I normally don't like pastelles on me, but I have lots of silvery blue akoyas, all mixed with other colors. Mostly cooltoned tahitians. Many people don't think that they can wear any color of golden south sea pearls. If they were to add a white south sea strand or mix them up a bit it would likely be gorgeous. That is if you truly love the strand. No point in keeping a strand you don't like. Personally however I never return pearls. If they aren't quite what I thought they would be I can always make something else. Also shipping to sweden takes forever...

Thank you, Happy Huku! Glad you stopped by!

Donna- bracelets, earrings, rings?!?! Oh Boy!! You are hooked! Can’t wait to see what you’re thinking of adding. In the meantime, I know you will enjoy your new strands.:love:

Tricia, I really love all pearls, even though some colors are definitely better suited to my coloring. I find that wearing a higher neckline so more of the pearls sit on the material rather than just your skin makes a difference.

A Kamoka bracelet, Tahitian keshi from Cees, two custom scatter necklaces hooked together and worn looooong, with a Kamoka pendant.

OMG the long tin cup Jeg!!!! And the golden keshis!!! And keshis from Cees!!! And your dainty SS keshi tin cup that is just deamy...Yes, I agree with DonnaH your collection is bucket list worthy...

DonnaH your blues are AMAZING!!!! You made the best possible start into pearls with your choices! I am looking forward to seeing what you choose next...

TriciaS give those blue akoyas time and look at them in different lights... They are chameleons and from what I have seen somehow adjust to what you are wearing and even to the mood ;-)

I have been wanting to wear my circle ombre with my new ombre bracelet and well another linen dress...During the summer heat here the full pearl necklace can be too much but I am enjoying dressing up in pearls for dinner so this is my new go to combination.

Happy weekend everyone! 9759BE27-DAFE-4D95-A3AE-B033DAEA9CE0.jpeg - Click image for larger version  Name:	9759BE27-DAFE-4D95-A3AE-B033DAEA9CE0.jpeg Views:	0 Size:	108.6 KB ID:	455180

Thanks so much, BWeaves, Sarah, Donna, SurfnSci, Charlotta, and eolian! I don’t often wear the PP tin cups in that long lariat, but it does create a bit of drama.

Eolian, those bronzy, greenish tones in your ombré are simply fabulous!

My pearls from the Vault sale arrived. A pair of Little h earrings! Soufflé pearls stuffed with seed pearls, rubies, turquoise, and little gold balls. I put them on and headed out to lunch yesterday. :eek: Worn with a white SS strand from Cees.

jeg, just when I think you can’t possibly surprise us with any more beautiful pearl looks, you show us that long scatter necklace combination. And then you top that off with the those fantastic little H earrings. What a gracious shape they are, and the combination of rubies, turquoise, and pearls is surprisingly lovely.
eolian pearls I love your circle ombre necklace. The variety of colors gives such life to it.

Charlottaeolian pearlsCathyKeshijeg, and everyone else who gave me advice about my new blue akoyas, thank you! I was a bit under the weather...and looked it...so I think that influenced how I felt about them. Here they are, worn together.

I’m attending a dressy wedding in two weeks and plan to wear them with a navy lace top and silk pants. I may be seeking your advice on how best to “style” them. 89B5D204-42C7-42B7-A8EC-15BB6642D8E2.jpeg 643739E6-AE77-445F-B656-D4C9F8EB85F4.jpeg

The earrings in my previous post are silver (dyed) FW Keshi studs from Kojima and the small silvery grey (also dyed) necklace is from pearlescence. I wear both of these A LOT...they are casual yet elegant, I think.

eolian pearls Your ombre pair is amazing!!!
TriciaS Your blues are gorgeous and they look so lovely on you!!!
jeg Those little h earrings look even more fabulous on your ears than they did in the PP website glamour shot, haha. They are just so cool and creative!

I've been inspired by everyone this week to wear blue akoyas! This is a combination of a baroque PP necklace and a very baroque bracelet from Pearlescence; I had to rework the bracelet after I accidentally cracked one of the pearls wearing it at work :( The earrings are from PP, as well.

TriciaS, that's my idea of a dreamy wedding (or anywhere) outfit ... Navy lace top, silk pants, those silver blue akoyas ... ultra-chic, dramatic but quiet elegance, go anywhere and never be under nor over dressed ... perfect! I sometimes switch how I'm wearing my matched strands during the day or the event ... long rope, back to 2 short strands for dinner, dancing etc. I also often have one strung just a bit shorter than the other to nest nicely, but sometimes I just like the slightly "messy" look of not nesting ... ie. you can't make a mistake with those :)

Still ongoing Vault sale BWeaves, in fact some new pieces were added. I splurged on the larger little H stud earrings, yellow gold, egg shaped FW pearls (metallic I'd say), carved out and lined with turquoise, tiny gold beads, rubies and seed pearls ... from the same design collection as Jeg's. It's rare for me to choose studs as I prefer dangles, but I LOVE them for something different.

eolian pearls. That ombre tahitian rope is marvellous and your new ombre bracelet so pretty.
jeg, amazing new earrings and south sea strand.
TriciaS your two strands looks great on you. You really can't go wrong with that outfit.
@SurfnSci.those akoyas looks wonderful and large for akoyas. How big are they?

Jeg your littleh earrings are gorgeous!!! Very very special and I love how you balance their colorfulness with the lustrous white SSPs...Such a beautiful combination!

TriciaS you can never go wrong with the blue akoyas! I love them nesting, I love them casually overlapping, I love them as a rope...They are always striking...

I have received yet another pearly package!!! And of course another pendant...From Julia of OceanRhyme on Etsy. This one was called “insanely metallic FW keshi” and insane it is! This heart shaped keshi can light up a room! And the tahitain pearl has a beautiful luster too..So so happy with it!!!! Dont know why I didnt get the earrings as well...:confused:
