mantan09 Thank you for the details on your pearls and also the gorgeous pendant! I was wondering about it! Your Jewelmer pieces are truly out of this world stunning!
jeg Thank you for your kind words! I have an updated Bliss picture ready ;-) Almost almost the last arrangement I think, I have added two more Takahashi silver akoyas (couldnt resist the luster) and when the pistacchios come that will be it!
And of course I love your multicolor Ts! A special shoutout to your Takahashis!!! Cant get over how amazing they are!
SurfnSci Such pretty SS keshis! And your stellar wire-wrapping! And the perfect combination with your ring! Beautiful!
Thank you, SurfnSci and eolian! And thank you, Douglas, for the sentiments. SurfnSci, your SS tin cup looks fabulous! Love it, and love the pearl mix. I hope that encourages you to mix more often! Eolian, how long is your Bliss strand going to be?
For everyone's reference, the SS pearls (as well as the sapphire pendant) were from Jewelmer in the Philippines. Not sure if you are all familiar with them. I think they have one of the best selections in the world.
Mantan09, oh yes, very familiar with Jewelmer and the gorgeous pearls from their farms. For those of us who were fortunate enough to attend the 2018 Ruckus hosted by Pearl Paradise, we were honored to have Jacques and Mia Branellec join us for the event. Here’s a photo that was taken by Red, during the Saturday evening festivities on the yacht.
Wow the 2018 Ruckus looked amazingly glamorous and so much fun! All the beautiful pearls and beautiful pearl people!
jeg The Bliss is at 28 inches now, I am thinking the ideal would be 32 inches, the same length as my circled ombre that doubles so nicely with 32 inches. Let’s see, hopefully in a month’ time when my pistachio package gets here (fingers crossed).
Thank you so much Mantan, Douglas, Eolian, Echo and Jeg!!! And wow, there were some seriously amazing pearls at the 2018 Ruckus!
eolian pearls Ahh, the Bliss looks so very beautiful in its current layout...I think 32 in is the perfect length for ropes given the versatility. I don't know how you manage to have the patience to wait for so long for your pearls - After 2 weeks I am ready to go crazy, and I can't imagine a month or more!
Late to posting but yesterday wore my blue-ish WSS strand from PP. (These were my first baroque pearls!) I now love that some of the pearls look like tokki pearls, but when I first got it a few years ago from a vault sale, I almost sent it back because I was used to perfectly round FWP. So glad I didn't! Paired with WSS also from PP that I mounted on a vintage pair of studs from Etsy.
SurfnSci the place I live in has the slowest vibe ever and waiting for packages is considered a kind of a zen exercise which I fail at completely as I keep checking the updates on my packages at least three times a day even though 99% of the time it shows “in transit”...
I LOVE your SSP necklace! Amazing luster and color! And the baroque shapes are lovely as well; the necklace looks wonderful on you, great that you gave it a chance!
Today I am wearing my rainbow bracelet from CMW pearls, it almost almost became a part of Bliss but then I remembered that I love it so much as it is...waiting for pearly packages makes me lose control of the scissors sometimes...
eolian pearls That is a stunning bracelet and I'm so glad it remains on its own, away from the scissors! The colors are lovely together and the middle pearl is just fantastic with its full rainbow overtone. Great wrist shot!
LucL To me they look like they could be akoyas versus very pretty imitation pearls, but hopefully some of the experts can weigh in to help! Are they gritty to the touch? It also might help in ID-ing them to separate the pieces and show any hallmarks on the metal. It looks like a double-stranded necklace and earrings, but I'm trying to figure out if there's also a bracelet...Love the clasp! And it's amazing to have pearls over 100 years old!
