86Corvettegirl those pearls really do look like petals. They look luminous in the photos, so they must be really something in person.
eolian pearls you look so good in these simple pendants. Love the combination of the colors and shapes in your newest.
SurfnSci now that’s an akoya necklace. Wonderful sizes.

As I threatened to do, I’m requesting your opinions on which necklace pendant combination looks best for an upcoming wedding l’m attending. The outfit is a navy lace-like top with navy silk wide leg pants (not the jeans in the photos!). The possible pearls are two 18” necklaces of silvery blue akoyas from Pearl Paradise fastened together, a strand of silvery blue grey FWP from Pearlesence, and a grey Tahitian pendant from a local jeweler. The colors of each are similar enough that one would have to get close and stare to see that they are slightly different. Number 2 photo has a small silver bow brooch holding the necklaces together.

I really appreciate hearing what you think...thank you!

TriciaS, I think that I like the nr 1 and 4 the most. If it's hot I would probably go with nr 1, nothing close to my neck so that I could enjoy the festivities. But the pendant is really pretty as well. Either way you cannot go wrong with any of your 4 options.
86Corvettegirl, those petals are pretty. I bet that they have that rainbow luster in real life. That's hard to capture on photos

Love the jewelry TriciaS
I especially like #2, 3, 4 and 1 in this particular order. To me #2 is a statement...exudes confidence and elegance, yet also casual.
You'll look fantastic :)

Very pretty blues, SurfnSci! And big!

Eolian, that heart shaped FW!!:p I love it so much!

86C, those petals look so light and cheerful! Love the soft color.

Tricia, I like number 2 because the pin covers the clasps and looks dressy, since you mentioned it was a fancy wedding. Otherwise, I like the style from your previous post with the two strands worn short, independently, and overlapping. But you should go with whatever you like because things look different in person and it’s your personal taste.

We hopped a ferry to spend spend some time in the San Juan Islands. The weather has been beautiful, scenery was gorgeous, and food, delicious! I just wore Tahitian studs from PP and my Traveling Pearl. Bunny was along, but pics were blurry. :(

Thank you Charlotta, TriciaS and Jeg! :)

Jeg, your San Juan Islands pics are lovely, especially with your silvery black (?) T stud showing.

TriciaS - I agree, I LOVE #2. The bow brooch is a really clever and pretty way to cover the clasps, and the whole look with the front draping looks very chic. I think it also sits at the perfect spot along your neckline.

Thank you ladies for the heart keshi pendant compliments! It really is almost too lustruous;-)

86C love your petals! And you said they are multicolored? Love them even more!!!

TriciaS I vote for #2 too! It looks the most like a special occasion get up to me. Other than that I really like the simple elegance of #1 and the playful layering of #4. But your pearls are beautiful any way ypu wear them!

Jeg looks like you had a fun trip! It’s so wonderful to be able to move around agsin, isn’t it?

I continue with my new pieces from pearl package #2. These are again from Julia of Ocean’sRhyme at Etsy. I really love all my pieces from her! Here goes the abalone necklace for a less dressy combination with pearls...I am a big fan of MOP pearls combinations, you might have noticed ;-)EA879783-E01C-4345-8EED-ECF98C48C8CF.jpeg

Thank you everyone for your advice about my wedding outfit. I do like #2...I just wish I had THIS shortener from Mikimoto (around $3,800 usd)

9163B71C-83E6-4E57-B328-EFB498B73F35.jpeg instead of my much less expensive silver brooch from Talbots. Although I think silver looks better with the blue akoyas than white gold (I keep telling myself).:01:

eolian pearls , what a unique MOP necklace and earring set. They are lovely.

BTW, Pearl Paradise just added more items to the vault sale. There are some drool-worthy new little H pieces.

Thank you, ladies, for all the nice comments about the small petal Keshia. Yes, they are very lustrous with a rainbow sheen & are comfortable to wear on hot humid days.

TriciaS, I like #'s 2 & 4. Either would look lovely for a wedding.

Loving all the new pearl posts!

Today, I wore a white & blue Akoya necklace with the longer mixed colored Akoya necklace I got from paradisepearlsthailand. Paired them with blue Akoya & sapphire briolette earrings.

(I don't know why I can't enlarge my pics now.)

eolian pearls your blue tahitian pendant is gorgeous with those akoya keshis. I have some spikey akoya keshis from Pearlescence as well. Very lustrous, but I wonder how they drill those tiny pearls. It's difficult enough to find the drillholes. I have mine with a big circled sort of rainbow tahitian.

Today I'm wearing SoC keshi pearls from Druzy... This was my first attempt at making a tin cup, so I'm hoping it doesn't fall apart by the end of the day!

Love your blue Tahitian pendant, eolian!
SurfinSci, your SOC tin cup is so cute & looks great on you!

I wore Tahitians to my nephews' 1st birthday party yesterday.

SurfnSci gorgeous tincup. Hopefully it doesn't break. I only had a tincup break once and when I examined the break it was clear that I had twisted the wire to much.
86Corvettegirl beautiful tahitians. I hope that you had a great time with your nephew.

SurfnSci what a beautiful tin cup you have created!!!! The SoC keshis are so so pretty and I LOVE the delicate design you chose for them! Very special tin cup!

86C what a great tahitian doubled look! I love how perfectly the pearls are nesting, beautiful colors that create such a nice contrast. This is why multicolors are my favorites!

Bracelet stacking today...my new tiny akoyas and levander rice pearls from Wen.

Thank you so much, Charlotta, Eolian pearls and 86Corvettegirl :01:

Charlotta, thank you for the advice about the tight wires! I inspected all the wires and one actually looks rather loose, so I tried to tighten it (hopefully not too much) but we'll see.

86Corvettegirl, I love the look of your layered Ts, and such beautiful colors! I especially like that blueish-grey one just right of center.

Eolian pearls, your bracelet stack is gorgeous! I never would have thought to pair those different colors, but they look amazing together. Those tiny akoyas are magical and the lavender rice pearls look so metallic.
