Re: SoC Mabe Necklace

One thing I noticed about this strand is the front center mabe. It has the illusion of water under the nacre. I've never seen anything like it before. I selected my loose mabe because it looked like this also.

Re: Trying to match earrings to strand

I like the top pair. People in general are more pickey about earrings matching than the necklace it seems. PP buys earring grade pearls and it shows. If these were mine I'd ask for their help, if I didn't like them, I'd ask for more to choose from.

Re: "Walking" pearls

You can pin them to a shirt tag behind your collar if you're wearing something like that. Other wise they do move during the day unless the front pearls are large and weighty.

Re: Looking for white metallic strand

There may be many reasons the PP pearls are more. Size, Quality, Clasp. Quality? They are all AAA? There are no standards universally recognized in grading pearls so every seller rates their pearls as they wish. If you brought in all three strands from the sellers of these pearls in your post, all r...

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.
