As pearl farmers...we are always looking for BIGGER pearls since that is "where the money" is supposed to be (that is what we were always told) but there is always a spot for niche pearls and 6-7 mm black pearls are a great idea. And I always noticed something...smaller pearls had better luster and colors than the larger ones (on average) so you had prettier pearls!

Thank you, Jeremy, for the very kind compliment! I dream of more of the tinies to play with!

Douglas, I really love the smaller pearls, and I do agree that so many of the smaller pearls I’ve seen, especially in Tahitians, have had nicer luster and color.

Wearing two very early Edison strands from Pkinnew’s collection, and originally from PP.

Thanks, Douglas! I can’t remember what Alexander called this strand, but to me, it’s a harvest strand since it is representative of all the types of Tahitians harvested at his farm. A fun strand to gaze at…

A strand of Akoya and a pair of studs from Takahashi Pearl, with two baby Akoya and Akoya keshi with pearls from Hong Kong (thank you for introducing me to this farmer, Jeremy!), and a Japan Kasumi ring worn as a pendant from Kojima.

Thank you, Jeremy and BWeaves!!

Bubbles and sister strand made of fancy colored Tahitians from Kojima. I just finished re-knotting the sister strand so I thought I would wear it. Also, two bracelets of J.Hunter Fiji pearls. I bought the J.Hunter toggle bracelet in Fiji, and chose the pearls for the orbit clasp bracelet at PP.

Sooo excited to catch up on everyone's gorgeous pearl looks today! @eolian pearls, your new SS pendant is a knockout!!! @SydK, lovely colors on your Wen pearls! @jeg, I am constantly amazed at your collection, wow, you have so many amazing pearls - those special tiny Collins Tahitians are absolutely fantastic.

Just returned from our 5-year-delayed honeymoon; traveling with pearls makes me nervous, but I did take some Robert Wan keshis and a pair of Atlas SS keshi studs, courtesy of Pearlescence.

I recognise those gorge little keishis - I should, I drilled every single one of them myself!

SurfnSci, hope you had a lovely belated honeymoon trip! I get nervous traveling with pearls, but never can leave them behind either :)

Jeg those Hinata strands are stunning; I especially like the wave pattern one!
