Re: Do natural blue akoya pearls fade?

I have two strands of Japanese baby blue baroque akoyas 7-7.5 and 8-8.5 I bought these pearls in 2009. I also have two strands Vietnamese blue akoyas which I purchased in 2012. All the pearls look the same as the day I purchased them. When they are not being worn I keep them in the box they came in....

Re: What looks best with Blue Akoya

No blue stones. Sterling silver or white gold chains would look smashing. If you try to use blue you'll never match the color and the color will look off, you'd be better off using something completely different.

Re: Replacement "Natural" pearl

Really? You're going to remove the diamond? I love the style. The jeweler you're using to do the work on your ring , does he use a laser welder? Pearls can't get hot. It would be a shame to have someone remove the pearl to do the work on your ring.

Re: Replacement "Natural" pearl

I was just over inspecting the photos at the other post. Look at the prongs holding the diamond in place. They appear very worn and some look so flattened out , they're ready to fail. If this pearl was in place the entire time the diamond was it has been subject to a lot of abuse by the previous own...

Re: Replacement "Natural" pearl

Beautiful ring. I agree with the others, wear it. If it is really a natural wild pearl the whole thing is nacre and should wear well. Since you don't know where Mel got the ring, it may very well have been changed out in the 100 years with a cultured pearl and stored away by the owner so that is why...

Re: question re golden SS pearls

You may want to look at Jewelmer to see if they have some photos. There are many shades it seems. I recently saw a shell photo filled with Golden's somewhere. If you're looking for a match to the pendant I'd send it to PP for their next buying trip.

Re: Lions and Tigers and Tahitians oh my!

Pirard, This was the inspiration for my strand. These pearls were better quality and much larger than my 11-15. I couldn't afford this strand so I got my version at a lower price. Pretty huh. 13-14mm multi color tahitians

Re: Lions and Tigers and Tahitians oh my!

Pirard, I would have to get out the calipers. I change it frequently in length and components. I take pearls out of other strands and add it for other looks. The largest pearl is 15.5 and more than likely the back is either 11-or 12mm. You can buy loose pearls anywhere. If you come to the ruckus you...

Re: Lions and Tigers and Tahitians oh my!

I have also purchased other colorful pearls along the way to add into my multi color strand. This changes the look and makes it a new look. When I want a longer strand I can either remove pearls from the rope to add in, or add a bracelet to the back of the strand.

Re: Pearls with Pearl earrings...

I noticed the Dumbo look when watching the honora video at QVC. Antonella was modeling the freshwater / crystal version. Perhaps you have to put a pair of studs in backwards to see what size looks best but is still visible from the front. Some who's ears lay flat against their head may not look good...

I also purchased three 8-11mm multi color strands and made a rope using HHPmom's technique of mixing the pearls in a bowl and pouring them onto a bead board. Most Tahitian solid color strands have a range of clothing in your closet that really makes them POP. Multi color strands have much more flexi...

I've had my multi color everyday strand since 2005. It goes with everything and I never get tired of reaching for it. The size is sometimes too large so I will grab a smaller MM strand or pendant.
