Hi All,
I finally received some ripples I am happy with! I just can't decide between silver or gold findings, help me decide please ASAP!!! I simply can't wait to string them up and will probably work on it tonight :)

Lovely lustrous pearls! Well, perhaps vermeil would be a slightly better choice (less contrast), but I'd probably make comfort a priority over clasp color. Those are pretty heavy pearls and a large, comfortable clasp will make them easy to wear all day long!

They are lovely! I agree with Pattye. I would go will the vermeil. I think that color would look really rich next to those pearls. ~d

yes vermeil. esp since you can just re-string them if the gold wears off (after you've worn them every day for a while, like i sure would!) ;) those are gorgeous!!! saving two for earrings?

Those are really beautiful, nice choice! I think I'd go with gold, too. I always do silver because I prefer to wear it myself, but I think gold with those pearls will look really rich. Lovely!

Ha Ha! I strung them on a simple vermeil S clasp for now, but I love the suggestion of rose gold vermeil and I am going to keep my eye out for the perfect rose gold clasp, will re-string when I find it!!! Pics:









I simply can't get a good neck shot showing the beautiful colors and iridecence, they look so washed out in the pics, but alas.

Lovety love love love...
