Re: Pearls and Prints Challenge:

I don't buy prints so I guess I have nothing to add here. I never liked them with my gold or gemstone jewelry before I was into pearls.

Re: Best Pearl Necklace Length And MM Size For Casual Wear

I would think it depends on the style of neckline you usually wear. If it's a V neck, I would suggest maybe a 17-18 inch depending on your size and size of pearls you buy. The larger the MM the longer you will want it, perhaps up to 20". I wear scoop neck tanks most days so they don't interfere...

Re: Help me choose a blue pearl

Blue is rare. I would have them all sent to me for a in person lookie lou. They look great on the glamour shot. It's easier to make decisions on findings and designs after you see the size for yourself. If they are too small, they may make better dangle earrings or part of a design with other color ...

Re: What size would you guess these WSS baroques are?

Kay, It depends on the size of the model. Those pearls would appear larger on a petite woman. I would guess perhaps 20-22mm? but may be smaller.

Re: Sea of Cortez Pearls on Sale!

Flygirl, Those drop dangles are beautiful. I love the style of the hooks, Douglas and his designers are great. I am worried about him also, getting slammed by two hurricanes in such a short time is a nightmare. Praying the next one veers away and misses him.

Re: Advice please, Tahitian solitaire on omega chain

Evangeline', As you notice most don't string pearls on wire. It can enlarge drill holes and saw into the nacre. This pearl will be constantly rolling on the neck as you wear it. Also, it just looks unfinished. It would be a deal breaker to me if they refuse.

Re: Advice please, Tahitian solitaire on omega chain

I wouldn't want this style without the sleeve inside the hole protecting either. I would contact the seller and discuss it with them. They will have to remove this pearl from the omega to do the work if this is the only one in stock, so why not ask for another choice of pearls.

Re: PP Giant Freshwater and onyx links necklace:

One reason to pick this up and ditch the big white pearls and add your own Tahitians. The one of the whites could added to a bracelet or something perhaps. I love the links.

Re: New tin cup- Feedback/Encouragement?

I love this, but I am crazy about Cherry Tahitians. That said, unless you are planning on hooking a enhancer pendant onto this Tin Cup it needs a pearl inserted into the bottom of the U to look balanced to me. The pearls look small on the card, but this may be deceiving since PP uses these cards to ...

Re: Please share your experiences on setting a pearl pendant

Thank you Kay. I have more modern and antique pendants, but that is enough for this thread.
Anyone looking for cherry or the reverse, It appears Kevin does sell these also. The photo above of the two pearls are his.

Re: Please share your experiences on setting a pearl pendant

Pkinnew, I don't usually model pearls.

I ordered the AAA white south sea pearl for this setting yesterday from Pearl Paradise. They are holding it until I get this mount to them, so I will be mailing it out today. Two part epoxy takes a little while to loosen.
